Baby Poop Concentration: The Grossest Card Game Around!
As soon as you become the parent of a tiny, adorable baby, all forms of social politeness fly out the window. If you don’t believe me, I might only ask: was it socially acceptable to whip out your boob in public before you became a mother? Did you talk openly about feces multiple times per day in your pre-parent days?
One of the starkest differences between pre-parenthood and post-parenthood is the frequency with which you find yourself talking about poop: different types of baby poop; color and consistency; normal vs. sick baby poop; breastfed vs. formula fed baby poop … the list goes on.
And that’s before your baby starts eating solids and the oh-so-wonderful colors, shapes, and consistencies that come along with that.
While plenty of websites offer a poop chart to understand what’s happening under your little darling’s hood, we thought we’d do something a little bit different.
And by a little bit different, I actually mean a lot different.
Also: way funnier.
Like, right up there with the best funny baby poop memes on the Internet.
23 Types of Baby Poop Meme Playing Card Game
Introducing our (totally free) baby poo card game. It’s based on Memory/Concentration, and is meant to be fun, rather than educational.
Seriously folks: don’t use this game to diagnose your baby, or in lieu of medical advice.
DO use this game when you’re in need of a fun baby shower poop game. It’s a great complement to a more “traditional” baby shower diaper game, or is a fun (and more eco-friendly) alternative to any games using disposable diapers.
If you want to get really crazy, bust this game out over beers with that new parent couple you’re trying to become friends with. If they laugh, you’ll know you’ve struck friendship gold.
DISCLAIMER: If your baby is blasting out strange and fowl deuces, and you’re worried about his or her health, this card game will not help you. Seriously: call your paediatrician.
Meet the Diaper Game Playing Cards
Our game contains 23 different diaper cards, with each card representing the different types of baby poo you might come across as a parent.
Without further ado, here are the cards…
The Hot Tar
Give your baby a big round of applause for their first deuce! Newborn poop is known as meconium, and is a dark green color (often dark olive green).
It usually lasts three to five days and is the stickiest of sticky baby plops you’ll experience!
Baptism by fire, amiright?
The Escape Artist
Once your baby starts rolling or zooming around, you better hope those diapers can contain all his or her “gifts” to the world! If you are experiencing constant leakage, your baby’s diaper is probably too big or too small.
The Terrible Twos
Starting your baby on solids? Get ready for a whole new world of poo, including some perfectly formed logs in your darling one’s diaper (sometimes two of them side by side)!
You might gag cleaning these up, but just remember: healthy baby poop means a healthy baby!
This one happens to us. All. The. Time.
Your baby’s face turns red. She’s straining so hard, it looks like her eyes are going to pop out of her head. But when you go to change the diaper?
Nary a poop to be found. It’s the great mystery of our life.
The Ancient Treasure
Ancient Greek treasure or days-old poop covered in slime? Sometimes it’s hard to know.
On a serious note, if your baby keeps delivering white or grey baby poop, or anything that’s chalky, call the doctor. It could be a sign of digestive problems.
The Bleeding Nipple
Digested blood in baby poop shows up as black specks. They’re most likely nothing to worry about, and it’s probably from your baby swallowing blood from your sore and bleeding nipples.
Motherhood is great, though.
The Hold the Mustard
Mustard colored baby poop or mustard looking baby poop (complete with seed-like bits) is totally normal, especially with breastfed babies.
Despite this being a type of typically healthy baby poop, chances are it will have you reconsidering your sandwich order, right?
You can’t look at mustard like baby poop all day without it impacting your condiment choices.
If you find yourself feeling excited the first time your darling poops out a fully formed baby poop log, take it as a sign it’s time to get some new hobbies.
Seriously guys: this is poop we’re talking about.
A tiny bit of blood in baby poop might show up as blood streaks, and can be a sign of a milk allergy. While not always the case, The Dracula is often a lactose intolerant baby poop, so you may want to call the doctor.
The good news? It has nothing to do with your baby being a vampire.
The Forest Friend
Hard or pebble like baby poop is a sign of constipation, poor thing. Constipated babies are tough to watch, because you have to endure your little muffin straining with all their might.
Water, prunes and pear juice can help your baby go poop, but check with the doctor first (especially for younger babies).
Peanut Butter Bum
Tan colored poop that looks like peanut butter is normal for formula-fed babies.
Formula fed baby poop is usually firmer than breastfed poops, and can range from light tan to brown (and sometimes green and yellow too – it’s a wonderful rainbow!)
The Canned Soup
Yellow watery diarrhea in babies could be a sign of either an infection or allergy. But finding a Canned Soup in the diaper isn’t always a bad sign.
Lots of babies have runny yellow poops with milk curd chunks throughout.
Isn’t parenting wonderful?
The Mount Etna
When you find the equivalent of multiple canned soups in one diaper, you’ve got a Mount Etna on your hands.
Every parent eventually comes face-to-face with a Mount Etna.
How you handle it is what matters.
The Back Scratcher
When your baby’s poop find its way up the butt crack and starts sneaking out the back of his diaper, you’ve got a backscratcher on your hands.
For everyone’s sake, let’s hope it doesn’t climb all the way up into “neck-tickler” territory.
The Scrambled Egg
This cottage cheese baby poo looks like a mixture between mustard and cottage cheese.
It’s chunky and yellow – super common for formula-fed babies.
Just because it’s common, doesn’t make it pleasant.
The Mint Milkshake
Before you had a baby, you probably had no idea that poop comes in all kinds of colors – even green!
Fluorescent green baby poop, light green baby poop, green bubbly baby poop – we saw it all before our baby completed her first trip around the sun.
The Braided Rye
Easy to pass, easy to clean, this is a “one-wiper” that will make your baby happy, and you too!
The Chocolate Sunrise
The sun is rising. The birds are chirping. The coffee is brewing. Mornings are so delightful, right?
Well…they used to be, at least.
That is, until your baby decided to greet you with the overwhelming odor of a dirty diaper, first thing.
After experiencing a few sequels, you’ll probably get a feel for your baby’s personal dumping regime, and won’t be so quick to the immediate diaper change.
Like a fine wine, it’s best to let it breathe for a minute (although don’t actually breathe it in, because: gross!)
The Abstract Expressionist
Future famous artist, alert!
When your kid expresses an interest in exploring his or her creative side, might we suggest you buy him some crayons or finger paint?
The Blueberry Smoothie
One of the whackiest of baby poop colors, blue baby poop is an actual thing, folks!
Blueberries and feces sometimes combine to create a truly unique combo.
The Hidden Treasure
Introducing your little one to solid foods means he or she will introduce you to the wonderful world of chunky baby poop!
Carrots in baby poop, peas in baby poop, red pepper in … well, you get the idea.
It’s all coming your way.
Like the rapid dog of poops, this one foams a bit. Despite it’s resemblance to your afternoon coffee, we’re pretty sure you won’t get quite the same enjoyment out of it.
How to Play the Baby Shower Diaper Game
This hilarious twist on the classic card game of Memory/Concentration is the perfect choice for new parents and baby showers. Get to know the baby poop and diapers you might meet as a new parent with this free printable baby shower game.
- Downloadable print-at-home game cards file (see game Notes for downloadable file and instructions)
- 6 pieces of white card stock for every 2 players
- Flat playing surface
- Color printer
Before playing the game, follow the instructions in the Notes section of this How To Card to print the game cards from this file.
Set up the Game
- Shuffle the deck of 46 cards (One set of cards should contain two of each baby diaper card).
- Find a suitable flat playing surface, such as a table, counter, or floor. Randomly lay the shuffled cards face down on the playing surface.
- To start play, one player turns over a single card and lays it down face-up in the same place they took it from.
- All players should be able to see the card.
- The player should then do the same with a second card, and look for a matching set.
Continue Play or End a Player's Turn
- If a player gets a matching pair of cards during their turn, they should remove the matching cards from play and set them aside.
- That player can continue their turn by turning over two more cards.
- Players continue their turn until they turn over two cards that aren't a match.
- If a player turns over two cards that aren't a match, they flip the cards back to the face down position, and their turn ends.
Winning the Game
- When all the cards have been taken by players, the game is over. Count each card: the player with the highest number of cards wins!
After flipping over two cards that don't match, players can replace them to a different spot in the game, moving cards around.
Before playing the baby shower diaper card game, you'll need to prepare the cards.
For a two- or three-player game, download and print two color copies of the free baby diaper cards on 8.5x11" paper. This will create one deck of 46 cards.
To play with four or more players game, add an additional deck of cards (print two additional copies of the cards to create one deck).
If possible, print the cards on card stock. If your printer can't print on card stock, print the cards on normal paper, and glue them to card stock to create more sturdy cards.
