Admit It, Mama: You’ve Googled It Too!

As a mom I often find myself Googling the most random phrases and questions, my most memorable searches include the following:

  • Ways to figure out the sex of your baby at home – Despite the fact that I was told the sex of my baby from the get go, I was still interested to see if cravings let you know the sex, I even did an online baby gender predictor and it came up with boy!
  • How to induce labor – I literally followed EVERY single way there was, it didn’t help,, lol
  • How little sleep can a person actually survive on? – Apparently very little :/

Google can be your best friend as a mom, but sometimes, I have found, it can get things very wrong…

So on Friday my son had a fever, and didn’t want to take any meds, so after a stop at the local pharmacy I walked out with a bag of remedies, one of which included suppositories. Having very little experience in this department, I decided to google the following:

How to Insert a Rectal Suppository

SUPPOSITORY

SUPPOSITORY

I got the following advice:

Have the recipient lie on their left side with their right leg pulled up towards their chest. – Well my son thinks I’m changing his nappy, so so-far he is lying on his back, so oblivious…

Lift the right (upper) butt-cheek up to expose the rectum. – Still good, he thinks Im just putting on the bum cream

Insert the lubricated tip of the suppository into the rectal opening. – Just like that? Oh God, he saw it, he has started squirming.

Hold the buttocks together tightly for a few seconds after insertion. – Wait, Im still on step three… I have pinned him down with one hand, suppository aimed at butt in the other…

Remain lying down for several minutes after insertion. – He’s up now, trying to crawl away butt naked,, maybe I should have another go while he’s trying to run

You should insert it as soon as possible. Holding the suppository for too long will make it melt in your hands. – Yip this is happening

Make sure that the child is not moving around while you insert the suppository. – How Google? You left out the part of what to do if the other party isn’t willing.  Goooogggle??? Anyone???

Needless to say Boy – 1, suppository – 0

He took his panado syrup later, after he felt less traumatized, and his fever broke. I think he also realized what would happen if he didn’t. The next day my boy was back to his busy self! Sometimes Google just doesn’t have all the answers.

New Pamper Pants – What the packet doesn’t tell you!

So, alot of moms who potty train use some sort of nappy pants. I thought I’d give the new Pamper Pants a try since I’m already a huge fan of Pampers.

So firstly, what does the pack tell you, and does it live up to the hype:

– 2 Dry-zones: Quickly absorb liquids and lock them away from your baby skin
-All-around fit: Stretchy waistband and leg cuffs adapt to baby shapes and movements for a perfect fit in all positions
– Breathable: Micropores enable vapors to travel from inside to outside of the diaper to help your baby stay dry
-Soft like cotton – Crafted with soft like cotton* materials for your baby to feel comfortable in underwear like pants

So far I found all the above to be true. I’ve had no problems with any leakage, and my son has had no problems taking his own Pampers Pants off and bringing them to me, with a huge smile on his face, especially when we have company.

But what does the pack not tell you?

The packs can withstand the full force of a bouncing toddler!
