The Latest in De-Poopification

SwingDaddy and I joke about needing to go "de-poopify" the baby's dirty diaper. This week in response, Q looked me quizzically and said, "poo-poo-fy?"

Yes dear, your job is to poopify, and we will de-poopify. And there's a new ecologically sound way to take care of it. Our friend, Oat Man, stopped by to say hello tonight before he embarks on a national roadtrip to make a series of videos about the environment.

He recently interviewed the founder of gDiaper, the flushable, compostable diaper. They feature six cheerful colors of pants, ranging from Gumdrop Purple to Grassroots Green, and an absorbent insert that goes down the toilet without clogging. We're not going to make an immediate change to our routine, but I really like knowing there are some alternatives available to our Pampers standby.

In other news, Q is still sick and a bit barfy. I ran out to get some Pedialyte Popsicles tonight, because I'm afraid he might start getting dehydrated. Poor kiddo.

And I should clarify: I don't have Lyme Disease. What I have is an overactive imagination.

Ah, well, y'know you get used to it. Main thing is having buckets of soaking nappies around the place.

We coined a certain bucket in our household the barf bowl. Ian hates it.

Hope the little one is better...

The elmo story is funny, I had no idea there was such a thing. We are still excited about elmo crackers.

Wow, those are cool! I don't even want to know how many tons of diaper waste we added to the nearest landfill. Ugh.

I hope Q feels better soon. Poor guy!

You actually depoopify the poop? Wow, I'm certainly not worthy now.

That's good you don't have Lyme disease. Hope Q feels better soon! Poor kid! My kids never liked Pedialytes, even in popsicle form.

Cool. I'm going to order some to try them out.
