How's Your Partner With Diaper Changes?
Tue, 02-12-2013 - 10:15am

It's a dirty job, and someone's gotta do it, but that person is not Matthew McConaughey. The actor was recently asked if he was "running home" from an event to change his almost 2-week-old son's diaper. "I was there this morning, so I guess I am running home. But I'm not changing the diapers," he said, according to People.

Unsurprisingly, McConaughey isn't the only celebrity who has "somebody" changing his baby. Saying you are anti-diaper-duty appears to be a common admission in Hollywood. But, wait! There are some A-listers who consider it one of their favorite pastimes. So in case you've been waiting for a roundup of celebrity quotes about diapers, er, here you go.

These made me giggle (so dramatic!).  How is your partner when it comes to diaper changes?  Do you have help, or are you mainly on your own?  ;)

My husband changed all the diapers the first week because it hurt to get out of bed, which took a long time anyway since I tore and had stitches. Now, DH changes the baby and takes care of him first thing in the morning because that's when I go to the gym and late a night, so I can go to bed early since I get up twice during the night and he gets to sleep.

I didn't change more than one diaper in the hospital. DH has been great with changing diapers. Now that he's back to work, I'm changing more than he is, but he's happy to help out at home as much as he can with that. Now he just needs to learn to breast feed. Ha!

DH possibly changes more than I do! While I was pg I couldn't change DS without vomiting so it's just become routine that DH does alot of them.
