Poonami

WARNING: if you are eating, about to eat or just finished eating, come back later to read this post.

As you know I am new mother and motherhood brings so many new things to learn. For this week, the new word I learned was Poonami.

If you are a mum, you probably already know about it but for everyone else let me educate you. We are all familiar with No.1 and No.2. Yes I am talking about pee and poo. But do you know that in case of newborn there is a No.3 as well?

I was in a Mother’s group meeting when this came up and within a few minutes one of the bub showed us a classic example.

After a period of 6 weeks newborns sometimes have one bowel movement every 7-10 days. Yes, it is normal if you are breastfeeding. Babies keep all the nutrients that they need from your breast milk, and don’t poop as much or as often. Then when they do poo, that is what is called Poonami.

The wave created by the taking of a massive dump is poonami. Let me tell you, when it does happen, the diapers will be of no use and poo will go everywhere. The clean-up will take sometime and you hope that when it happens you are at home and not out and about.

Thankfully Chhori hasn’t done it yet but I am sure there will be one in my future as it is normal with newborns.

Till  next post take care everyone,

Why don’t you wash your hands after going to the toilet?

It is only me or have you also noticed that some people don’t wash their hands after they come out of toilet cubical. I am not sure of the reason but I feel that is really unhygienic and disgusting.

I normally notice that in public toilets and at work as well. Someone comes out of the cubical and go straight off to the door. Then there are some people who just run their hands through some running water after going to the loo. Seriously, how can that be OK considering what you’ve just been touching with your fingers in the cubicle.

All it takes is few minutes of your time to wash your hands with soap and warm water and then dry them properly and that is all. Imagine what you normally do with your hands after going to loo. Use the computer, drive, eat, drink and basically these people are spreading bacteria and germs everywhere.

Have you seen someone not washing their hands after loo? What is your opinion?
