9 Ways To Get Out Of Diaper Duty

By  |

Newborns can go through ten diapers or more a day, making it easy to feel like you’ve had just about enough of this crap. If you’re got a co-parent in the house, there’s no reason you should be the only one using the changing table. Here are nine ways to get out of diaper duty and make someone else to do the dirty work for you.


1. Compliment their diaper changing skills.



Particularly effective on brand new parents still in the starry-eyed over their newborn stage, if you tell someone they are really good at changing diapers or that the baby seems to enjoy it better when they do it, human pride will likely cause them to want to show off their mad skills.

2. Say you’re sick.



No one wants to force a nauseous person to deal with a blowout, lest you create another pile of yuck that needs to be cleaned up.

3. Lotion your hands constantly.

Because it would be a waste to have to wash your hands after you just rubbed lotion into them. Extra believably points for scented lotion, as you’re just looking out for baby’s delicate skin.

4. Cry.



You don’t need a reason, just call on your heightened postpartum emotions and let the tears flow. No one wants to upset a  sobbing woman  further by handing her the baby powder and butt paste.
