The Laughing Stork’s Fun Parenting Facts

Break out the Pampers and stopwatches:  Research shows that women take an average of 2 minutes and 5 seconds to change a baby’s diaper, whereas the average man re-wraps a babe in only 1 minute and 36 seconds.

Behaviorist Corinne Sweet explains the difference:

“Changing baby is essentially a mechanical process, men approach it like a pit stop; they want it over as quickly as possible.”

And I guess us women LOVE changing diapers so much, that we draw it out as long as possible.

No word on the, er, quality of the diapering results.

Stay tuned for more fun facts!

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
