IdBeCrazyIf: Cleaning shiat out of a pussy, no one prepares you as a Father to do that shiat.
factoryconnection: IdBeCrazyIf: Cleaning shiat out of a pussy, no one prepares you as a Father to do that shiat.Seriously. With three kids under 6 years of age, none of the things in the article are remotely terrifying to me, and honestly should just be filed under the "surprising" tab. Well, the infant period is pretty troubling, but nothing prepares you for having to clean dookie out of baby vulvas. As a matter of fact, the abuse that little girls put their parts through for sh*ts and giggles is pretty appalling. On the same topic, in-utero meconium makes for a troubling birthing process with attending skin/hair/eye discoloration for a while.I'm surprised that they didn't include a description of vernix, a thicker-than-Eucerin material that babies have on their skin in utero and sometimes at birth. Although since most American babies are born in hospitals they get all that world's-best-moisturizer wiped off immediately. A shame.The fontanelles, aka "soft spots," are not the vulnerable areas that were described to me as a child or to this writer. They're as tough as cartilage, so any contact appropriate for, you know, a BABY is appropriate for a fontanelle.
nekom: The biggest thing I learned is not to overreact. I was TERRIFIED of holding my daughter, thinking I'd somehow hurt her. I tried to keep the temperature and humidity just right. Then I realized:1. They are robust. Try not to drop them, but otherwise don't concern yourself too much.and 2. If you are comfortable, they are comfortable. They don't need to live in a bubble.
Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Is it true they have weird poop at first? What's that about?

Radak: 6. There is no legitimate reason to amputate healthy tissue from your infant male's genitals.
