Welcome to Dad’s Diaper Detour


Witam!  Bien venidos!  Welcome!

Thank you for stopping by Dad’s Diaper Detour, my record of staying at home to care for my daughters.

The seed to start a blog was planted in spring of 2012 with the birth of our first daughter, Sweetie. My wife kept reading all sorts of new parent information on various blogs, and soon I was getting on more blogs as well. During the first months of parenthood we found ourselves getting in to all kinds of conversations about the baby. Like many new parents we were talking about our daughter every chance we could. From her nursery to the side-sleeper to nursing and cloth diapering, we were talking up the experience. These conversations continued as I decided to leave my job and stay home. People then began to ask me, “What are you going to do when you’re home?” I tried to have funny responses ready and one time I said I would start a blog. So that seed of an idea grew into this blog.

I appreciate the work of all parents and welcome input from everyone. I think we all have our role to play and our work to complete, whether inside or outside the home. I think all committed parents are amazing. Stay-at-home-Moms, you have been a rock for our society, setting a high bar with your child care. To all of the stay-at-home-Dads, we are trending right now but we have work to do – so this one’s for you guys.

We’re raising the future, men, let’s get it right.
