My little one is down to one or two a day, and let me tell you -- they're usually big. Sometimes the diaper contains them, sometimes it doesn't.
Like just this past Thursday we were in Detroit on the final leg of our move, and we went to dunkin donuts to get breakfast. She was fussing a little, which is sometimes a sign of a messy diaper. So I look for a changing table, no table, so find a corner on the floor and change her on my changing mat.
As I pick her up out of her car seat, I see the reason for the fussing -- the poop had gone all the way up her front side. So I take the diaper off and it's a HUGE mess. So here I am, on the floor of a dunkin donuts, trying to figure out how to quickly change her and get her onsie off without spreading the poop all over her. Oh, did I mention she's at the age now where she thinks it's grand she can roll over onto her side and tries to do it every opportunity she gets? Plus the wandering hands? My husband had to help hold her down for me.
UGH. And then yesterday at the fazolis... thank God for changing tables. The diaper contained it, but it was very, very smelly.
