Parents: How did you put up with your child’s nastiness?

I saw this one facebook post of a baby that had diarrhea so bad that it leaked out of the diaper and was all over the crib. How did y’all put up with it? I wanted to have a baby but on second thought...

    It says a lot about you that you describe it as a child's 'nastiness'.  A baby not only has no control of their bowels and bladder, but also has to rely on older people to keep them clean. Nastiness, suggests you think babies deliberately make a mess. When you were a baby, your parents and maybe others coped with changing you. Don't have a baby until you become more mature. If you don't grow up, then invest in a newborn doll, which you can cuddle and play with, but will never produce poo or pee.

    Do NOT judge your decision to have or not have a child over a Facebook posting.

    This child was obviously left alone too long ....... where, in the heck, was his/her parent?

    For me, it was no big deal.  Its your baby and honestly, though it seems gross and unmanageable to an outsider, as a parent, you just learn to cope with dirty diapers and other messes.  For the most part you want your child to feel clean and be content, so you do what you have to in order to accomplish this goal.

    Nothing will make you more acquainted with the grossness of being human than being pregnant and having a baby. You just deal with it and move on because it's part of the territory. Once children are old enough to stop having potty accidents you can go back to not really thinking about it.
