Parenting is serious business, especially when it comes to changing diapers. For dads, it seems like an extremely difficult task to perform a diaper change, but with practice and commitment, you can master the art of diaper changing. But for mothers, they are born with diaper changing skills. They are so good at it and make it look like child's play. So why do women ask men to change diapers? Most of us are not good at it and women are. Is like men asking women to do an oil change in a car. Is it only the woman's job to change the baby's diaper?

    I probably changed more of my kids' diapers than my wife did...

    You both made that kid, you both are responsible for the kid, both should care in ALL aspects of raising the kid!

    Actually, it's the men's job, with just a few side events of Mom taking the chore. With two working parents and Mom nursing, Dad gets the baby out of the crib, changes her, hands her off to me to feed, then starts all over with her twin sister before taking the first to burp and put back to bed while the second one feeds. It's the only way for both of us to get some form of sleep prior to the next day.

    I have a brother that is nine years younger than I. I mastered the skill before I was ten. My son's dad changed his diaper when we were still in the hospital. Dad quit changing when he got sprayed.

    I think both men and women should change diapers, I don't see the big fuss men make about it.

    And let me say also, that the picture for this choice is highly disturbing.

    I quickly discovered that if I did the diaper in the middle of the night and I did a lot of that... there was a more than welcome reward upon getting back to bed. AND I DON:T MEAN COLD HANDS.

    But a daddy would be well rewarded if he helped out!! But I don't expect him too. That is my job, to take care of the kids while he is gone to work. I stay home on purpose because that (dispite what the liberated woman feel) Is what women were designed to do. I love the old saying " The hand that rocks the craddle, rules the world!" Because it is so true.

    Whoever smells it first should do it!! Seriously, I calculated that I've changed 25,000 diapers over the lives of my 4 kids! That's a lot of poop!

    This is an issue that must supercede these ridiculous gender role notions. It is not about the discomfort of an individual, but the hygeine and health of a child. I would think that either parent would do what is needed to ensure the future health of their child.

Plus you can use that against them in the future............(why you trying to put me in a nursing home man??...... I just to change your diapers, you ungrateful bastard) see!

    My kids father changes diapers as much if not more than I did. He changes most of the crap diapers. If men are so tough then why should baby poop be such a big deal. If you don't want to change diapers then don't have kids.

    My husband and I have three children and he has changed almost as many diapers as I have. Women are not born with diaper changing skills, but, come on, it's not rocket science. Women can also learn to change the oil in the car and I would wager that there are some women who can perform a better oil change than some men just as there are some men who change diapers better than some women. My husband changes diapers better than many of the teen-age female baby sitters we've hired. It's a matter of practice and commitment. I have often wondered if some men just do a "shitty" job of changing diapers so their partners won't ask them to do it anymore.

    I am a woman and I have no idea how to change a diaper. We are not born with that skill, we aquire it by trial and error, and so can men. It's not like there's some gene prevelant in women that make them diaper chaging machines or anything.
