In a viral video that has taken the internet by storm, a husband's struggle with changing diapers due to his incredibly sensitive gag reflex has left viewers in stitches. The video, titled "My Husband Has a Very Sensitive Gag Reflex and Changing Diapers is Rough," showcases the comical reactions of the husband as he battles with the unpleasant task of diaper changing.

The video begins with the husband asking his wife, "Where you at? What, we haven't changed?" Clearly, he is not looking forward to the task at hand. As the wife hands him the diaper, his expressions range from disbelief to disgust. The husband exclaims, "Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! Why are you so disgusting? You're tiny! How are you this disgusting?" It's evident that he is struggling to cope with the less-than-pleasant odor.

The comments section of the video is filled with whimsical anecdotes and empathetic reactions from viewers who can relate to the husband's predicament. One user humorously remarks, "All of human history: 'You're so tiny... Ergh!'" Another user sympathizes, saying, "I don't know why you're so disgusting!" accompanied by a laughing emoji.

Several commenters share their own diaper-changing horror stories, adding to the humor and relatability of the video. One nanny recounts a memorable incident involving a baby girl who turned her crib into an artistic canvas with her own excrement. The nanny had to strip both herself and the baby down before embarking on the messy clean-up operation. Despite the challenges, the nanny now fondly shares this story as a cautionary tale for new mothers.

Another commenter, a stay-at-home dad, shares a whimsical experience involving explosive diarrhea that hit the walls during a diaper change. The parents' shocked reaction upon witnessing the aftermath adds another layer of hilarity to the situation.

To help the husband overcome his sensitive gag reflex, viewers offer a range of practical suggestions. Some recommend placing a little scoop of Vick's under his nose, while others suggest using a scented facial mask or a medical mask with a pleasant scent. These tips aim to mask the unpleasant smell and make the experience more bearable for the husband.

While the video and comments provide plenty of entertainment, they also offer valuable advice for parents and caregivers dealing with diaper changes. Suggestions such as wiping from front to back and ensuring the baby's safety at all times are shared to prevent accidents and mishaps during this essential task.

As the video continues to make waves across social media platforms, it serves as a reminder that parenting is full of unexpected challenges and humorous moments. New parents can take solace in the fact that they are not alone in their struggles, and that even the most experienced caregivers have tales to tell.

So, if you find yourself in a similar situation, take a deep breath, grab some Vick's, and remember that laughter is often the best remedy for life's messy moments.

All of human history: “You’re so tiny.. Ergh!”


I was a stay-at-home dad with my son, and powered through and soon was able to handle anything - or so I thought. Since I was home anyway I started watching my niece’s baby also so she was able to go back to work. One day I had her baby boy on the changing table and as soon as I had his diaper off he let loose with explosive diarrhea that pelted and then ran down the wall 2 feet away. After a moment of stunned silence I did exactly what your husband did in the video. Gack! Ugh! Gag! Ack! Seriously??? Urp! At that moment my niece and her boyfriend popped their heads in the door. They had come to pick their son up after work, took one look at the wall and one good whiff and both turned and ran. Lol


“I don’t know why you’re so disgusting!” 😆


Was a nanny for 30 years. One time I had a little girl who was so amazing. Hardly cried and was the sweetest little thing. One day I was staying overnight for the week while the parents were out of town for work. When I went to wake her up it turned out that in the time I had checked in on her at 3am and gone to wake her at 5:30, she p***ed, woke up and finger painted every single rail in her crib. Once finished with that she moved on to finger painting her pillow and body. I had to strip her and myself down and take her into the parent's shower because no way a bath would work with that kind of mess and wiping her down first would have irritated her already sensitive skin. Not one of my favorite moments during the cleanup but definitely one of my favorite stories to tell to young mothers as a warning of what can happen. Because *anything* can happen with kids LOL Once she was clean I put her in her playpen so I could tackle cleaning her bed but I took a snapshot of the bed first so I could show her parents (not in a "look what I had to deal with" angry way but more of a "look what your adorable innocent little princess did HAHA") Parents have since framed it and apparently bring it out every once and a while for a laugh.


Tell him to stop walking away from the changing table, you're going to have a fun trip to the ER if he keeps that up


Never changed a diaper and still feel like I know exactly what this man is going through.


Is it smell related? I have heard of people using vapor rub under the nose to mask bad smells (like a decomposing body).


Little scoop of Vick’s under your nose. + can add a K95 if needed.


This is hilarious! 🤣🤣 My dad got used to changing diapers but the first time he had to pick up my dogs p*** he puked. Unfortunately the dog p***ed on the stairs, so the vomit went all the way down. Thankfully he was home alone and we didn't see it in person but he's pretty traumatized


I feel for the guy. I was fine with it for the first 7 months or so. Around Christmas I got sick and ever since then my sense of smell has been extremely sensitive. I’ve thrown up a couple times after smelling my baby’s p*** or puke.
