Hopefully everyone’s day so far is sailing along smoothly. I, for one, am relaxing and thanking the good Lord that I don’t have to repeat yesterday’s bathing ritual. It was totally necessary, but per usual, it was a tad draining (no pun intended). It’s not that I don’t delight in the bathing of my babies like every other mom, but you see, sometimes doing everything twice can be a little trying..
As I mentioned yesterday, my babies did, in fact, smell like old cheese. Now, some of you may be confused by this terminology, so allow me to explain. At times, especially if a baby is bottle-fed, as mine are, they begin to develop a foul odor. This particular brand of smelliness stems from the constant flow of formula and/or milk that makes its way down the neck of the child, and then takes up residence in the fat folds under the chin. It then sits there (unless you religiously wipe your child down after each feeding), until a pungent sensation confronts you whenever you snuggle up to your baby.
