thunder dumps

I NEVER thought, in a MILLION years that  I would everEVERever talk about baby poop.  Ever.  Than we had some friends over for a little BBQ and I found myself sharing things about my baby that nobody probably wants to know.

Except I think it's interesting...so I'll share with you too.  Read on if you'd like...it's about poop....baby poop.

Clara doesn't poop every day - now she is down to every other day (she used to only go every 3 or 4 days!!)  I was freaking out about this - don't babies poop all day long!??  What is wrong with my lil girl!???  Nothing is wrong ...and not all babies poop everyday.  Three pediatricians have assured me she is normal and her bowels are just dandy.  Some babies don't poop a lot.

So - what happens when she does?  Tommy called it "thunder dumps" one day, and it's the most appropriate term ever.   Big big big baby shits.  Thank God it's only every other day.


  1. I love that term - it is so fitting! I know exactly what you mean! :)

  2. haha! that's too funny. i usually call them "blowouts" but "thunder dump" is just even more hilarious.

  3. Blowouts or Thunder Dumps. I don't which one is funnier. All babies do this.

  4. ha! needed a good laugh this morning!

  5. Funny! Some people actually think baby poop smells nice and sweet. Rest assured...babies should be pooping daily, as should adults.

  6. oh my God I love you.

    On a totally unrelated note, I desperately need to trawl your archives because I am massively overwhelmed with all this wedding stuff.

  7. HA! the picture on this post is absolutely perfect with the topic.

  8. wow, thats good. So that means you get relief for two days before you go through the poop hell again :-)

    wish my baby does the same.
