Being a new parent comes with many challenges, and one of them is changing dirty diapers. This task was left to the mother for one couple due to the father's germaphobia. However, things took a turn when the husband started mocking his wife's facial expressions during diaper changes. Fed up with his behavior, the wife made him experience it firsthand. The husband struggled with the task and made disgusted faces throughout. The argument continued, with the wife reminding him that he is also a parent and should be willing to help. However, the husband claimed that his germaphobia was not being taken seriously. Who's in the wrong here? Read on to find out.

Germaphobe husband learns his lesson in baby diaper changing

When it comes to parenting, every task should be shared, right? Well, not in this case. A wife and mother of a two-month-old baby has been handling all the diaper changes because her husband is a hardcore germaphobe. But he's been pestering her about the facial expressions she makes while doing so. After multiple attempts to get him to stop, she finally snapped and made him change the diaper. And let's say it didn't go as smoothly as he thought. What started as a "smiling contest" became a reality check for the husband. But was the wife in the wrong for forcing him to face his fears? Reddit users weigh in on the situation in the comments and provide their experiences with co-parenting and sharing responsibilities. Read on for more.
