I have the hardest time to change poopy diapers. I can change peepy diapers but not poopy. I always throw up afterwords but my wife can do it. Can you change diapers?

This is something I could never do either, I have changed only one wet nappy but when my sister had her babies she used to warn me when it was a good time to leave the room, I just cant handle that sort of thing either, I have a very weak stomach when it comes to things like that so you are not alone....

You need to distract yourself while you are doing it, think of something else, dont think oh yuck I am changing a pooey nappy think of something nice that makes you happy while you are changing it, I work with people with disabilities and I have always had trouble changing adult bottoms but I found that distracting myself works or even buying some really strong chewing gum that will take just about any smell aways and make it alot easier for you! At least you are trying, good on you for that

I've been known to change three boys' poopy diapers in under five minutes flat. It takes practice so keep trying, you will get the hang of it and your wife will appreciate it. Your wife isn't "better" than you because she can do it and you can't, she just knows she HAS to do because you can't. I'm sure she doesn't exactly find it appealing either but she knows it has to be done. The faster you do it and get it over with the easier it is.

Well I too also facing the same problem. So I apply chinese medicated oil on my nose before I change the diaper. It help to reduce, you may try applying some on a face mask too.

it wasn't exactly my favorite thing to do, and i'm not sure if i'd do it for just any baby, but when my kids needed to be changed and i was there, i did the deed. i breathed through my mouth, kept thinking of how much better i was making my child feel by cleaning them up, and got-r-done. it got easier every time i did it. just about the time i really didn't mind it at all, they started going on the potty. figures. hang in there. there's plenty more to come.
