Yes. Poop + pressure in the wrong place = ascending vaginal infection which can lead to bladder infection... which can lead to kidney infection... which can led to kidney failure and death. So, yeah. Sure you can only do so much when they poop a vast amount of liquid poo into a diaper that holds it against their little bodies, but we were not intended to be diapered and for our manure to be smooshed against us.
A very very very big congrats to Alex and Sam. I am so sorry she had such a long labor but I'm sure it was worth it to get that beautiful angel. It's nice to see her working on jewelry again, too.
Hope the pumping and shared feeding works. It makes my life MUCH easier to be able to have my husband wake up with the baby half the night, or let me take a nap without having to wake up to feed in the middle.
Take lots of pictures. They change so fast! It's amazing!
