How many diapers has your husband changed?

i've had three kids. i think i could count on one hand how many diapers he's changed.

and i can safely say he's maybe given two baths... ever.

  • If he is home he helps change diapers. He also bathes our boys and I bathe our girl.

  • I have no idea. More than I did for sure.. During my son's diapering/bathing years my husband was the primary care giving parent, and I was the primary income earner.

  • Pretty equal here too. My husband is a very hands on dad. I am lucky!

  • My ex didn't change diapers, but he did give a few baths. We will see what SO does when the next arrives.

  • same here. except, he used to bathe our oldest a lot when she was 2. she's not his biologically (but has been in her life from infancy) and our first child together was an infant and he was too scared to bathe her, so he would bathe my oldest every time. now she's 4 though, our middle 2 and youngest 1, and he has never given the younger two a bath. his work schedule does interfere with that though, he doesn't get home til 7:30. as far as diapers, i aint backin him up on that one! he was just pure lazy.

  • Too many to count.  When one of our 3 has had a dirty diaper and he's around, he just changes it.  I hate to see (especially with dads) the ones who just sit around and wait on their spouse to get it done.  He works, so of course I've changed the majority.  Most of the bathing I've done.  Maybe a handful of times he's given them baths.  He would without complaint if I asked him too though so I have no room to complain period.

  • I have not a clue. I changed more since I am a stay at home mom. We has changed more than I can count. He doesn't just go and change a diaper, but if I ask him to while I am in the middle of somethig he does it. He also gives them baths when I ask although not when they are real little cause he is afraid he is going to drop them.
