Anyone gone poop with their baby in the sling? Anyone? Anyone? No? Just me then?

Swell.

  1. I have used the bathroom many times with the baby in the Bjorn. I’m afraid if she gets any taller I might accidentally pee on her feet.

  3. Oh no.  I’ve totally BTDT.  I would rather have them in the sling, then sit their ass on the nasty floor.  C’mon now, thats truly disgusting.

  4. MY HUSBAND DID.  I nearly died.  I started laughing the second I saw him because of course he poops with the door open.  I said what are ya’ll doing.  He said me and the baby are having a moment leave us alone.  I replied with…Would you like me to get the baby a gas mask?

    ROFL

  5. Not yet, but I’ve certainly thought about it.  A friend of mine admitted to breastfeeding her baby while peeing.  I told her she was my new hero.

  6. You are NOT the only one. I have peed, pooped the whole ten yards whild holding a baby. I have even had to breast feed while to doing it. Actually last week I was doing the above and my 3 year old came wondering in asking me to tie his shoe…Somehow I did it. I figure it was a way of welcoming me to the mommy club.

  7. I haven’t fed a baby in a sling while pooping, but I have fed my toddler his lunch while he sat on the toilet, refusing to poop.

    I know, gross eating in the bathroom, but its better than toddler poop in the kitchen floor!

  8. I didn’t have a sling (wish I had now that I have hindsight) but I did hold the baby and then placed in the bouncer while I performed my butt wiping duties for myself.

    ha!

  9. Ok, so those days are yet to come, but I’ve pooped whilst talking on the phone to my dad, which is also kind of freaky, no?

  10. LMAO.

    Hey, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!! That’s the beauty of the sling, no?

  11. Oh, all the time. At home, on the road…even in the teensy airplane lavatory!

    Once the baby was asleep in the sling on my back (where I’d moved her so I could do some cooking) and I wasn’t sure how I was going to go poop because it’s kind of hard to sit down on a regular toilet with someone on your back. I think I sat sideways that time.

    Whatever works!

  12. Done it all, baby.  Sometimes, nursing/slinging on the potty is the only way I could assure that the baby was not being killed or eating paint.  Hey, you do what you need to do, yo.

  13. Does nursing on the pot count? 

    A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

  14. You know it!

  15. Poop, peed, changed my ‘pon.  Nursed while doing most of the above, too! Oh, yeah, done it! wink

  16. I’ve attempted using the bathroom with baby in the frontpack while NOT sitting on the seat at one of those nasty park bathrooms.  You’re not alone, Mrs. F!

    By AmyM on 2007 08 03

  17. Girl, you know I have!

    By Kirsten on 2007 08 03

  18. I’ve done it.  And I’ve nursed while pooping more times than I would ever tell anyone.  But I guess I just told everyone.  Oh well.  You do what you gotta do I guess.

    By Jen on 2007 08 03

  19. I don’t have a baby, so my answer is no.

    But ... you’re my new hero!

  20. Don’t hate me but I always had a hard time with the sling thing.  Figured I’d carried them for 9 months and my turn was over.  STrollers were my friends smile
