Wiped Out

I have a small rant today.

Like Liam’s rear end, I get a little chapped during the diaper changing process when I reach for a wipe and it remains attached to the next wipe. I mean, that would be a task to accomplish one-handed but the damn wipes keep sticking. We’ve used the Pampers wipes and the Target brand and both struggle.

That’s all, just wondering if others have experienced that and are there any recommendations which solve said problem? Or, I guess I could make my own

CONGRATS: Nice job to my friend from K3, Kati M. and her husband Jason, who welcomed their little guy Alex into the world yesterday. Even crazier, Kati’s brother Adam also welcomed a new baby on the same day!

BOOB JOB: Liam now has an inappropriate onesie. Katie G., our friend and mother of Mia, hooked up Liam with a onesie which reads Will Walk For Boobs. This continues a tradition his father started in high school when I thought it was really rad/clever to sport the following hats: Naval Academy SEAMEN, South Carolina COCKS, Hanover PECKERS, and so on. She purchased it from what she referred to as the place to get really funny baby stuff, Cafe Press. I agree, the selection for all ages is pretty vast.

Molly I'm Not Married To and Liam

THANKS TO A MOLLY I’M NOT MARRIED TO: SulliMom’s good pal Molly made a visit today to shower our family with food, fun and goodwill but sadly not her husband or our friend Patron. But the pasta she provided was really tasty and I can’t wait to dig into the cake she delivered. THANK YOU.



89 Diapers, 12 Days

Can you believe that Liam has gone through 89 diapers in his 12 days on earth? That is baffling to me. But friends and family told me that was to be expected.

About 85 of those diapers have been made by the good folks at Pampers. I’m a big fan of the Swaddler line of diapers. Minimal blowout factor, solid adhesive and easy to snug. But, Target was out of the Pampers product the other day so Huggies it was. And, the disappointment is palpable. Terrible adhesive, poorly constructed, poor fit. I can’t wait to refill the Swaddler inventory.

Neither of us can believe how poorly Huggies perform.

While we’re on the topic of diapers, we have a gassy baby on our hands. A Helpful Hint in the Baby 411 book reminded us that regardless of what we do to combat Liam’s bubbly ways, he’ll continue with it through about three months. Joy.



Q & A With SulliDad

I’ve had many questions filter in from across the country. Many of which have been awesome in nature. I’d like to take a moment and answer those this evening while watching the Blackhawks. Come on guys, Nashville? It’s worse than losing to Cleveland. But the Sox won tonight. Thankfully we very well might have the best pitching staff in the AL.

Question: Do you know what gender SulliBaby is? -Art L., Iowa City, IA
Answer: No, we are awaiting a surprise. But I think it’s a boy. Thanks Art!

Question: What will you name the baby? -Lois K., Fullerton, CA
Answer: We have a few top choices, but think Irish and plain.

Question: Will you breast feed or go with formula? -Dr. Smitt, NY, NY
Answer: Neither. SulliMom will take care of that.

Question: Have you been getting plenty of sleep? You know, you must get your sleep now! -Lorda M., Hillcrest, IL
Answer: I’ve been sleeping fine. However, I’ve looked into it–you can’t bank good sleep now in order to use it once a newborn starts keeping you up at night. It’s science.

Question: How do you keep your fabulously toned lower body despite the stress of being an expectant father? -Herb F., Galveston, TX
Answer: Thanks for noticing, Herb. It comes down to two things: drinking water and running 12 minutes per day. Oh, and generic vitamins from Target.

Question: I saw your wife and she has really curly hair. How does she keep it so curly? -Regina R., Cicero, IL
Answer: It is a natural curl, Regina. However, she does nurture the curl with a couple of products that we found at the Maxwell Street Market.
