Diaper Week Continues With...

The PeePee Teepee

Thankfully I have never been peed on while changing the diaper of any of the baby boys I have cared for over the years, but I have heard it can and does happen often. The PeePee Teepee takes the fear out of baby boy diapering. It is shaped like a little hat or teepee and fits perfectly over the penis of any baby boy. Instead of hitting you in the face while you are cooing at baby to keep him calm or fumbling with the intricacies of the diaper, any eliminations your baby may make while temporarily free from the confines of the diaper will be soaked up by the PeePee Teepee.

I had not heard of the PeePee Teepee for the Sprinkling WeeWee until my friend Alison gave birth to a baby boy 14 months ago. She found the PeePee Teepee helpful in the beginning, but harder to use as the baby got older and more wriggly. By the time her baby was to wriggly for the PeePee Teepee she had become more adept at diapering though.

The PeePee Teepee comes in many colors, designs, and fabrics (cotton, terrycloth, flannel). They come five to a package and can be purchased at these online retailers and these stores near you. If nothing else, PeePee Teepees make a great, cute, and unusual gift for the new parents of a baby boy.

I leave you with The PeePee Teepee Poem:

The Pee-pee Teepee™ Poem
Changing a baby girl is not all glitz and glory;
Changing a baby boy is an even bigger horror story.
You hold his feet in one hand, and the diaper in the other;
The whole time praying, "Please don't pee on your mother!"
