My 18 month old daughter was being quite fussy at bedtime and was downright refusing to lay in her cot and go to sleep. I stuck to our routine of laying her down, turning on her glow in the dark seahorse, handing her the favourite blanket and walking out with a simple “good night baby girl”. She grizzled for a few minutes but then went quiet for 20 minutes. I thought it was a good time to make a cup of tea… I should have waited longer. Once the kettle was boiled, I hear a little voice saying “mum, mum, mum”. I go into her room and she is standing in her cot. She sees me, says “poo” and screws up her nose, waving her hand under her nose. She has only just started doing this when she poos in her nappy, so I went over and did a quick sniff test.but there was nothing to smell. So I lifted the side if her nappy to take a peek. Still nothing. I look at my daughters face and she has a large smile and a cheeky glint in her eye. She hadn’t pooped, she just wanted some more mummy time. If this is what my 18 month old daughter does now, what do I have to look forward to as she grows up.
