The Night I Slept in the Wet Spot

Not that kind of wet spot. The other kind.

The kind that happens when your kiddo seems to suddenly be between diaper sizes and pees and/or poops up her back in the middle of the night for the third night in a row (which normally never happens!)…all the way through her pajamas and swaddle. The kind that Saturday night required a full washing of the swing. The kind that Friday and Sunday night caused her to fuss and you to wake up wondering why in the hell you’re so wet. The kind that requires full outfit changes for both of you in the middle of the night and a towel down on the bed to cover the wet spot.

I’m so not a fan of that kind of wet spot.


  1. Wet spots in general are no fun to sleep in. I am just going to assume we are talking a pee wet spot and not a poo one. Because well…..ewww. 🙂

  2. Oh no! Are these the cloth ones or a disposable? Poop up the back and squishing out is the worst!!! Hang in there mama. No wet spot is ever good! 🙂

  3. Yuck!

  4. I love it!Is it bad, that my mind immediately went somewhere else?I have never experienced that (we never co slept), but I bet that isn't fun!

  5. Ugh, the explosions are the worst! Usually a sign we needed to go up to a bigger size diaper – are you starting to use the next snaps up, or is she still too small for those? Can you add any kind of insert to help the diaper absorb a little more?

  6. it's a good thing she's so cute, right? 😉 i've gotten to where i just laugh every time mack has a poosplosion…which is often. 🙂

  7. Oh no! I know that experience 😛 What size is Stella in now? We moved to size 2 ages ago…

  8. 🙂 it happens to the best of us 🙂 After Caroline had the flu I brought her back in bed with us but we prepped the bed after she had thrown up 3x in her crib. That extra towel and blanket brought so much peace of mind! When Elizabeth was little and slept by us I always put down a few receiving blankets under her in case of anything…

  9. Ahh, yes. I have a hazy memory of grabbing Gracie's waterproof crib mattress cover, laying it on a giant wet spot on our bed and closing my eyes for sleep like nothing was any different.

  10. No fun at all. Luckily those only happen for us first thing in the morning so it's time to get up anyway. What's more laundry? Ugh, hope it hasn't happened much since!!!

  11. I nominated you for an award because I love your blog so much!!!Come check it out on my blog for more details!Chelsea
