The Midnight Poopers

It started last Monday, we went to Grandma and Papa's house and Cenzo had a big snack.  He was so excited to eat pears that how could I say no.  He finished a whole can.  Then he ate his brother's snack bar.  Well, 10 minutes later, Hubby arrived and brought take-out with him.  Cenzo cannot resist pasta and meatballs and so he ran to the table!  He ate two big bowls of pasta and a giant meatball.  

And then...he was complaining he had a "sick belly" and needed to poop.  So we ran to the bathroom. After a couple trips we thought he was done.  That night before bed he went again.  Then at 2 am he woke up crying that he had a bellyache and needed to poop.  And so began a week of "Night Pooping!" UGHHHH!!!

 I am very spoiled by the boys sleeping 12 hours a night.  So to wake up 5 nights in a row between 2-4 am so Cenzo could use the potty was not impressing me.  For the first 2 nights he actually did poop, the other nights he was talking and playing and being silly.  But, each night he went right back to bed.  So I wasn't sure if I should say no that he could not wake to use the bathroom? Or let him because when he starts wearing underwear I don't want him wetting the bed?  Dilemmas.  Finally on night 6 he slept through the night again! YEAH!! A whole nights sleep for everyone.

And then...last night (night 7) Luccio woke up at 3 am with a poopie diaper!! Is this another case of "Monkey see, monkey do?"  

It better end! I need to store up all of my sleep for when Bean arrives and I have to get back to being up all night again.  Oh, I don;t look forward to nighttime feedings or poopings!


  1. It's more like 'monkey see, monkey poo'. Sorry. I couldn't resist.

  2. haha i was just going to write monkey see monkey do doo.

  3. Oh my! I can't imagine. I am lucky to have a little one who sleeps 12 hours too. I hope the bad week is over - you need your rest!

    I found you on BlogHer and wanted to stop by!

  4. Poor baby with a belly full of poop (well maybe not anymore)! I hope you've been able to rest and Luccio didn't keep you up with more poop-ful nights? ;-)
