I was changing the boy. Again. We had had a quiet morning and had even taken a walk. He was screaming and squirming on the table and I was being earth mother and singing to him.
Then I saw them. Yellow crystals. Oh my god - when my dad had crystals his kidneys were infected. I ran to the phone and called our Ped doc.
He asked me if he had had a big wet diaper.
Was it high up in the diaper and golden yellow
Was the diaper saturated?
oh. my. god. check
"They are absorbent crystals from the diaper. When he has a super pee, the diapers base usually get saturated and the crystals break free."
"Good call, always call us with any worries. But, its nothing to worry about this time"
Rookie mom!! CHECK!
