Hair Danger During Diaper Changing

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Diaper Danger

I always assumed that changing a boy's diaper would be so much easier than that of a girl. In reality, they are equally challenging. Boys can make a golden mess of their room in seconds while girls are prone to urinary tract infections if you wipe the wrong way.

There's one small danger that can present itself when mommy changes her son's diaper in particular — stray hairs! Be careful not to let one of your hairs, which seem to fall out in clumps postpartum, drop into the diaper area. I've heard horror stories of moms who weren't paying attention and nearly cut off the circulation to their baby's penis! If you're blond, be extra careful since you might not even see it.
