For most people speaking of bathroom habits or our bums is a private matter. It such a taboo subject that deserves much more limelight. There is potty humour for a reason after all, isn’t there?! Don’t worry I totally get it! Prior to becoming a mother I, too, was one of those very private individuals. One who would get antsy the moment someone started chatting about their bathroom shenanigans. The one who would be swift to change the subject.
I still remember the moment that changed that all to well. My daughter was just a newborn. She couldn’t have been more than 3 weeks old at the time. I had her lying on my bed, and I was in the midst of changing a pee filled diaper. Amidst the diaper change I noticed her start to squirm and make that squishy, grunting face that all parents recognize. Without even thinking I dropped the diaper to catch the poosplosion because that is exactly what it was… a poo explosion. Why I dropped the diaper and didn’t quickly put it on her to catch the eruption who knows. The fact of the matter was that I was a sleep deprived new Mom who was taking each moment with a stride. Even the less glamourous moments. All I can say is thank heavens for baby wipes! They did wonders in helping clean up the brunt of the mess. As did soap and water, but heck I would have been lost without wipes during those baby days.
Could you imagine if baby wipes didn’t exist, and we had to wipe a baby’s bottom with toilet paper?! Which leads to my next point. If babies can have wipes used on their bottoms, why can’t adults use wipes on their own? It would get the mess cleaned up quicker and would certainly do a more thorough job.
Sure we have the trusty old bidet that – yes – we could rely on to get the job done, but who really wants to use a bidet?!? I certainly do not, have not, and will not. EVER. There is just something so daunting about them. Something that makes me uncomfortable. For those who don’t know what a bidet is; a bidet is a low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing the genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus. Does it sound at all appealing to you? I think not.
