The Diaper Machine

Silas has been home for 7 days now, and he has gone through about 9-10 diapers per 24 hr period. At first, he did not pooh much (the estimate was that it was around 1 or 2 per 24 hr period), so his parents naturally had to act concerned. After a few more days, Silas performed like a real trooper, and started producing pooh in almost every other feeding session (about every 4-6 hrs), and also in every colour and texture.

Which brand of diapers is the best for a newborn? Silas has the uncommon fortune of being able to find out the answer for himself. He is currently working his way through his first package of Pampers (for newborns, 8-14lbs). After that, there is a package of Huggies and Kirkland (Costco brand) diapers waiting for him to compare with. Once he has decided on which brand of diapers he likes the best, the results will be reported back here.

awesome description and update of the uh..fecal matter. Also, I'm relieved to know that Silas isn't named after the albino in Da Vinci Code.

I know you're probably way too busy, but when you have time, I can finally make use of that skype fone/webcam.
