Before I had a baby I had a lot of opinions, bottom lines and staunch ideas about what I would and would not do as a parent. Two months in and all of my big ideas have pretty much completely crumbled. This officially will begin a series of posts that describe me doing things I said I would never do...like ever. Thing I said I would never do #1 - Use a wipe warmer.
"Ridiculous," I proclaimed! Way to spoil your baby's ass into thinking he/she always deserves a luxuriously warm wipe at ever turn! Once they have one warm wipe that's all they will ever want! You would have to be an IDIOT to use one.
After a month of Chico screaming like he was being stabbed every time I used cold wipes in the middle of the night, it hit me. Oh my God - this is why people do it. Also - having a baby boy who has a cold wipe touching his penis in the middle of the night means immediately being squirted with piss. The poor kid pissed on me, pissed on his jammers and once he had pissed on his own face I'd had enough.
So we have the warmer now. Chico doesn't scream bloody murder in the middle of the night. He also doesn't freak out that he has "regular" wipes during the day (so there goes my spoiled on warm wipes theory), he hasn't peed on anything but his own diaper since and to top it off the warmer has a tiny little nightlight that I'm super into.
