Picture this: a couple brings their first child into the world during the Covid pandemic, and the mother has a traumatic birth experience. With both parents working from home, they divide their parenting duties. The mother takes care of breastfeeding, bedtime feedings, nail clippings, and teeth brushing, while the father handles baths and diaper changes. Sounds fair, right? Well, as the child grows and the mother becomes pregnant again, things take a dramatic turn. 😮

Diaper Duty Debate: Fair or Foul? 🤷‍♀️

So, here's the situation: a husband has changed 90% of his child's diapers for the first 1.5 years, while his wife took care of other parenting tasks. With a second baby on the way and the wife struggling with pregnancy symptoms, the husband has declared he won't change any diapers for the new baby, claiming it's abusive and abnormal. Is the wife in the wrong for expecting her husband to continue his diaper duty? 🧐 Let's dive into the internet's top responses to this diaper duty dilemma! 💬
