  • That is so funny, because I get so mad when my husband does that! He does it every time he changes my son's diaper! He pull's the tabs in way too tight and it dig'sd right into his sides! I hate that! I always have to open the diaper up and fix it too!

  • Lol we bought pampers cruisers, and because of the stretchy tabs on both sides of the diaper, he thinks they'll be too loose, so he tightens them as far as they'll go! I laugh at him because he doesn't understand the concept of the fact that the diaper is supposed to be stretchy on the sides!

  • Hell if someone is nice enough to want to change one of 100 diapers i change(it seems) I am all for it!If they mess it up i gently suggest how my baby prefers it, and show the person...I figure its my child I dont care if they get mad if i "correct" it.

  • my fiance changes diapers very well...i don't ever need to change how he put the diaper on. I hate when the crotch part is folded in,I can't stand that I have to pull it out. <~ Thats the only thing that people do that bug me with the diapers,other then that the people that I let change my son's diaper know how and it doesn't bug me.
