600 diapers yesterday

There’s really not much more to say. Well, actually, let me clarify (in order to head-off the confused and incredulous emails in my inbox), Trixie did not use 600 diapers yesterday, but rather exceeded that number cumulatively.

    57 days old. 600+ diapers. More than 10 diapers per day. How does this compare to the national average? I think Trixie must be especially prolific.

  2. Ben Mac says:

    Yes, that’s true. To be exact her current daily average is 11.3 dpd (diapers per day.) Of course this number is constantly changing, and thankfully averaging down. I did come across this survey of diaper usage by another parent:


  3. Amanda says:

    11 diapers a day is normal for a breastfed newborn. Don’t worry – the average number will go down when Trixie is either (a) no longer breastfed or (b) around 6 months old and starts eating solid food. By the time she is a year old, she will probably only be using about 5 diapers a day.

    Great! I’m looking forward to it already.

    the idea being that each of us would suddenly airfare know a lot more about the other past what they look credit card like, which is all you can really know about a stranger ski vacation when you meet them (aside from maybe cues you get car rental about where you see them at, and inferences based dating on how they’re dressed, etc., but those are only plane ticket generalizations at best, and stereotypes at worst). hotel The downsides are legion, of course. First of all, vacation package

    I’m starting to enjoy some of these spam entries, maybe you should move them to their own thread instead of deleting them. This one in particular contains some funny subliminal messages.

    Yeah, it’s real cute now, kind of like email spam back in 1998. But just wait until 6 months from now as it exponentially increases and viagra offers, weight loss pitches and stock tips outnumber legitimate comments 400 to 1. Then it’s not going to be so interesting anymore.

    Two things:
    1) what the hell is this blog spam? I don’t understand at all, and I know that upsets you when even your dumbest readers don’t get what’s going on at TTU

    2) what makes you so sure that Trixie isn’t plotting while she’s sleeping? Granted, she looks innocent and docile, but she might be dreaming up her next scheme, or at least recharging for the next round. BTW, looks like a pretty good sleep day yesterday. Hope the nap she’s taking now is a real one and not one of her bogus cat nap numbers.

    Blog Spam is the scourge of the web log (or blog) world. It’s a commercial solicitation loosely disguised as a comment attached to a random entry. It’s proliferating like crazy because all us bloggers use the same web engine to run our sites (in our case here at the Trixie Update we use ‘Movable Type’) This makes it very easy for the spammers to write a script that seeks out Movable Type based web sites and upload these fake comments.

    Normally, I catch and delete these comments before anyone has a chance to see them, but Charlie beat me to it today. And he’s right, sometimes they are so esoteric and weird – designed to confuse readers into clicking the website link disguised as the author’s email address – that they are amusing to look at. So I left up today’s spam, after disabling the links, in order to shed a little light on one of the dark secrets in the high stakes world of blog management.

    Your million dollar chance is right in front of you — if you can find a use for used dollars, Trixie will finance herself! Act now, before the chance has passed. .
