Mango does a body Poo?
So I'm trying to wean my youngest from his one night time bottle. I've replaced it with juice and am watering it down slowly. You should know my youngest has a very stubborn case of silent reflux that just isn't going away. It's like the skavies of infant acid reflux, keeps showing up just when you thought you were cured.
Anyway, I had been using grape juice because he seemed to be able to handle it. Well, he had a flare up a couple of days ago after over a month without. I decided that it could be the grape juice. Makes sense, right? So I switched to boxed mango juice. Keep in mind the juice selection for him is quite limited.
Not a good idea. Being the brilliant Mother that I am, I forgot that Mango is supposed to clean you out. Regardless, I'm not one to believe those wives' tales told by woman who actually know what they are talking about. I'm just a big old stubborn ass who likes to learn on her own. At least I can find the humor in my discoveries. Or my husband can because he was the lucky one with first shift this morning.
My little one woke up as a poop factory at 5am. I know what you are thinking, fun way to start your day.
It was out of control. I was on 2nd shift this morning because my baby required night duty attendance, and I heard my husband open lucky diaper number 2 (I only found out it was number 2 later). I was dozing back off when I heard "Holy Crap! Holy Crap! Holy Crap!" I'm not going to describe in detail what he saw but it was enough for me to warn you about the cleaning power of mango juice.
