Are you grossed out by changing the diaper of another person's child?

I'm not, and it's sorta weird. I can't take adult excrement, but baby poo doesn't bother me, lmao.

  • Not generally, but one of my nephews was still in diapers at four and it sicked me out to have to change him. He had as much poop as an adult and it smelled SOOOO bad.
    Thankfully that is over.

  • Only a little. I guess I've changed so many at this point, that it only bothers me a little more than my own child's.

  • No I'm not... My SO has a half brother who's three months old. We keep him a couple times a month and I don't mind changing his diaper. Now my son is over two years and I HATE changing his poopy butt. But It doesn't gross me out...

  • Yes, very much so. I really don't like to baby sit my neice whom I've seen damn near every day since she was born because I don't like to change other people's babies diapers! I don't know why it grosses me out so much but it does.

  • baby poo i can deal with, but when they are 3-4 and still in diapers, they have more 'adult' poo, and that grosses me out. i'll do it, but i certainly don't enjoy it.

  • I don't mind changing another child's diaper. If I'm babysitting for a friend & her child is in a diaper someone is going to have to change him/her & if I'm the only one then so be it. The child will be changed.

  • If the kid is 3 or 4 and should be on the potty but still in diapers-yeah. I had friend whose 4 yr old still wore diapers and pooped in them. It was gross when she'd lay him down right on our living room floor in front of everyone like he was a week old!

  • Yes, I am. But I was beyond grossed out by my own kids' diapers, too. Plus the whole not touching people thing extends to infants and children, too.

  • I used to be. I hadnt changed many diapers before my DD was born and soon there after I start babysitting for some friends and it was so weird at first but now it just comes natural. Kinda weird.
