How you change with the second baby, an empirical study, part I: Spitting up

Baby number 1 spits up a little bit while being changed – you get a clean cloth, gently wipe his mouth, change his shirt because there’s a little stain on the collar, put the cloth into the laundry basket because it has now been used, quickly google: “Baby spits up a little while being changed” and spend half an hour reading about different kinds of spitting up, which naturally leads you to reading about vomiting and dehydration. Get freaked out about your baby maybe being seriously ill. Cry a bit. Or a lot.

Baby number 2 spits up a little bit while being changed – take off one of his socks, wipe his mouth, put the sock back on, quickly google: “Carrot soup” because that’s what you really feel like eating.
