This is a discussion on do you ask your hubby to change diapers? within the Newborn Baby and Infant Care (up to 12 months old) forum, part of the Growing Up & Parenting category; Since you say your hubby & father in law both used to being served by your mother in law, I guess we can understand ...
Since you say your hubby & father in law both used to being served by your mother in law, I guess we can understand why he is like that. He suddenly has to do all these things when all along he didn't need to. Does he help you with anything else? Like feeding baby?
actually my hubby last time at hm also didnt do anything one.. my mother in law lik very kelian also... chiro, mayb you try to be fierce abit??
bcos i bf at home, so he seldom feed nowadays...he will prepare the fm n feed him when outside.. Change diaper..everything, but when at home, he busy playing bejewelled on facebook.. So no initiative to take care of baby cos playin game...
So i will ask him to change diapers etc to make him work...then he not happy
Sometimes i purposely put baby on changing station n walk away..then he will spring to his feet to go near thenchanging station..
His whole family say i m veryslow.. But they talk, no action to help me...'cui gong l p song' in hokkien
uncle nic (classic MCP) - ask my baObei, she noes lols~~~, was only 28 at that time and he also did not help much....tsk tsk tsk also must FORCE then he help but unwillingly~~i ddink it has got to do with the MCP thingy~~~
Actually, you should shoot your husband. Since he dont wanna change diapers, then ask him to breastfeed.
Cos that was what I told my husband. You dont wanna change diapers, you come & BF. Since you dont have the ability to BF, then shut up & change his diapers.
But honestly, men dont do a good job at changing diapers. My husband can make a mess out of the poopoo & dont clean my boy's backside properly.
And i think your idea is quite good.. ya men cant bf so should help out in other things! no matter how good or bad they did in changing diaper, it's the matter of they wanna help anot...
Luckily my husband is not spoiled by mother in law. Automatic help also.
Think maybe some Singaporean guys are pampered by their mother, as no opportunity to stay alone overseas to do their studies or work. Cannot even take care of themselves, how to expect them take care baby? Last time I know of a Singaporean guy who ask gf to do housework for him.
Not sure why gf got to do housework for guys even not married. So open eyes big big when marrying a guy. See got any housework skills, got through tough interview tests.
Re hubby changing diapers:
I get my hubby to do it, especially at nights and during the weekends. Since I'm 100% direct latch on, he doesn't need to feed her so he takes over on the weekends and look after her - this includes bathing and changing her.
My hubby's chores are basically laundry and dishes while I tackle the rest since I'm a stay at home mum. But my mother-in-law did tell me in the beginning that I spoil my hubby by doing the cooking and stuff. So since I had the baby, my hubby will cook sometimes as well.
There is tubal ligation (tying the tubes) and then there is hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).

I am lucky too.Hubby is an expert at diaper change n he is 44 this yr.He even puts nappy rash cream after each change unlike me coz in hurry sometimes i forget.
He baths our baby n feeds her,wash bottles etc.
One time i was at the mall n baby pooped.So i was taking her to change diaper as he was playing with our 2 kids at the kids playground.He saw me going n quickily came to bring baby to change diapers.you shld have seen so many mummies n maids mouth just dropped....hahahaahah!He is like tht though..helps with everything.They r his kids too after all.N he puts on diapers better than me.
Mother to 2 princes and 1 little princess
my ex was also like that, ask him feed pin milk, he told me, just now feed already, now i shld feed.
wah kaos, i from morning look after til night time 11 pm, he come at 11 plus feed once, then baby wanna drink milk again at 1 plus he tell me that.
i was so fed up i argued with him n kick him out of my house.. that was the last of him.
anyway, for me, i will expect my hubby to do such SIMPLE duties.
even my dad also will do it for pin lorr, changing diapers n making milk when im busy.
bf is also learning how to do it, though he always act smart, dont wanna ask me then do wrong! wahahah~ but at least he tries,
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
My hubby also change my dear son diapers. But when my dear son poo poo he will try to wriggle himself out of it. Haha. He cannot stand strong smell.
My hubby in charge of mop floor and wash toilet and I settle the rest. Coz we both working, our dinner is tinkat (in disposable ware) and now we cannot tahan , hired a part time helper to do housework.
My hubby wants our dear son to have equal share of mummy and daddy, so he helps out to play and feed and take care of dear son. He likes to bathe dear son coz he likes to see dear son splash and smile in the tub. You can make it a bonding and fun activity for your hubby to do all these things with dear son. Sometimes when my dear son do funny things I will tell my hubby. Then my hubby will also say, I want to see I want to see.. So he will go and change diaper then he can see lorr.. Haha.
