Whenever I would be on Babycenter, sometimes I would see threads about rather to change a baby after they wet once or not. Some parents do actually change their kids after one accident and others have them stay in it because it can hold more and there is no poo. When I found out there were actually people who won't change a diaper unless there is poo, that made me wonder if they just leave their child in a leaky diaper because a kid doesn't always poop before they are very wet and are leaking. Plus I have noticed the diaper gets real saggy and looks uncomfortable by the shape of it when it's wet so I change it on my child. That made me wonder how do parents even leave their kids in the same diaper when it gets out of shape and sags.
So I have seen quite a few debates about when to change diapers and the argument moms were using was "Would you want to sit in your own waste?" and others were saying karma could come and get them and they might get left in their same diaper when they are old and I thought in my head how that argument wouldn't work with me because I actually like being in wet diapers. it wouldn't bother me if I wet myself and had to stay in it. So I would fail to see their point they are trying to make because wet diapers don't bother me so why would it bother a child to be in it or an elderly?
One time my Mom found out when my son poops, I take the diaper off and dump the poop out and put it back on him because it didn't stick to the diaper. Mom told me that was so gross and then it smells and gives him an infection. Then she asked me if that I what I do with mine and I said yes. Then she told me "That is so gross and then you smell."
I knew she was trying to make a point about how I should change him after a poopy diaper and I wouldn't like it but because I do it to myself, her argument failed because I didn't see her point. I am sure she was shocked I did that to myself so no wonder I was doing it to my child. But I never like wasting a diaper.
Does anyone else laugh or get a kick of of this sort of argument because their logic fails with us? I just don't see their point because I like staying in my wet diapers and messy ones too. So to do that to me when I am old wouldn't even be karma. Especially if anything happened and I ended up needing them and had to have someone do it for me because I was too weak to do it myself.
I know this is an argument people use as a way to get other parents to have empathy and think of if they would like it done to them so why put their child through it? But what about people who wouldn't mind being in a wet diaper or messy one, then this argument would fail because they wouldn't see your point. That would be us all right.
