Despite the amount of anticipated 'squeam', once you get spit up on for
the first time, all squeamishness goes out the window. To that end, it
helps to have on hand plenty of the previously mentioned muslin cloths
and enough baby wipes to paper a room.
And speaking of squeam...
It is quite certainly a gnarly sight to see an entire layer of your
baby's skin shedding. To combat any negativity, we continuously rub him
down with olive oil and have given him the contrastingly cute nickname
'Crusty Boo Boo'. Not sure how he feels about the latter, but we nearly
pee ourselves laughing every time we say it :-)
