There are some things that no one ever bothered to mention to us as expectant parents. One of the main things, not to be taken at all lightly, is the respiratory danger (not to mention potential emotional trauma) involved in changing infant diapers. Some of the diapers that our so-called helpless little newborn filled could probably have been used to take out an entire state’s population, if they had been handled correctly, by people who had perfected the process. It often seemed as though we should have been prepared with some kind of custom contaminated container cleaning racks to insert into our dishwasher, with extra settings added to the dishwasher for bio-hazard sterilization. Of course, as long as the diapers stayed under control, pretty much the only thing that had to be sterilized was our hands, and they probably wouldn’t have held up very well to sterilizing heat. The air throughout the house, on the other hand…
Along those lines, one of the early postpartum things that made me laugh more than anything else was watching my husband change an especially odiferous diaper. He would pull his shirt up over his mouth and nose as soon as the diaper was open and the aromatherapy had officially kicked into high gear. That was my cue to pay attention to the show. With that prelude, he would proceed to clean up as quickly as was humanly possible, with frequent pauses (baby feet still in hand to avoid creating more laundry) to spin his face away from the baby’s backside to breathe fresher air. As much as I often teased him then and still do, I must admit that I often feel the same way, though perhaps not to the same extent. Maybe I’ve just learned to hold my breath longer.
In the course of our pregnancy, labor, and delivery, we did come to understand, through all too much experience, just what is the purpose of those “Bio-Hazard”-labeled containers all over the doctor’s offices. Although it’s not the most pleasant stuff to consider, it’s great to live in a time when people (especially medical personnel) understand that there is such a thing as a bio-hazard. Not only are we aware of the issue—there are all kinds of regulations protecting the general public (and the medical personnel, for that matter) from those contaminants. Besides a multitude of cleaners that work off just as many philosophies of sterilization, there are specialty wire racks for sterilizing containers contaminated with bio-hazards, through various different processes.
