Blowout damage control: pull the onesie off down over the legs
If you're one of the lucky parents whose infant has those ghastly blowout diapers where the poop shoots up their back, take advantage of the crossover fold shoulders on most infant onesies.
Take the shirt off DOWNWARDS rather than over the head. The crossover fold on the shoulders makes it possible to put the shirt on over their big heads, and ALSO to take it off over their big bellies (and a diaper).
No more poop in the hair, or contortions and rolling up of poopy shirt to avoid the poop in the hair thing. Only have to rinse off the bottom 3/4 of the baby, instead of the whole baby. Good all around!
This may be a duh to a lot of folks, but it was a huge lightbulb moment for me.
Yes, indeed. That's the funny thing about parent hacks -- one person's "no-duh" can be another person's life changer (or, at least, moment changer).
