The health visitor had warned us. The NCT girls had warned us. It was brewing for days. Finally it arrived – the megapoo. Baby digestion goes through many changes in the first six weeks. First there’s black tar poo, then there’s cous-cous poo, then nothing… then the megapoo. She had been out of sorts all day, and it clearly came as a huge relief to her. The biodegradable nappy did an admirable job of containing the explosion with just a bit escaping to stain the lovely babygrow from my sister. After the change, she felt very sleepy.

We’re still getting used to the wonder of having a proper garden which you actually want to use. This one may actually get some attention.
