Cry kick scream poop pee smelly messy stinky diaper
Undress warm water powder cream skin navel wiper
Dress up look big eyes ththwarth poop pee kick scream and cry
Undress re-diaper wet jet change again he's dry
Cry rock pat bundle cradle cuddle pacify
Sing nursery rhyme nope try another lullaby
Lay flat on side pat cuddle coo count baby sheep
Shut eyes clench fists now listen breathing peaceful sleep
Cry crinkle face look left reach right pump piston jaws
Suck in strong vacuum going at it wide-eyed pause
Feed several times each night don't sleep past early seven
Sit worry wonder fret despair he smiles heaven
