Nobody wants to see the sausages being made, which is to say this beautiful baby has done some not so beautiful things. This will happen to you at some point early in your newborn experience. Sometimes, oh who are we kidding, most of the time I find myself holding LTD and he experiences the condition known as flatulence. The wind is often long and it is always hard. I usually think he has indeed messed himself. It feels warm and definitely feels gross. But here is the thing, nothing has happened. The diaper is empty. This phenomenon is just another example of the magic that is the newborn.
