Baby in nappy doing a superman pose

In the stone ages when men lived in caves and wore loin cloths infants have always presented a problem, they soil themselves, a lot!  You can change your baby’s nappy up to ten times a day, sometimes more, and that disposable nappy that you use, who invented it.  If you care to know such things, and sometimes it pays to know (think pub quiz) then Rachel Swaby over at Gizmodo, a technology blog, did a history piece on nappies which is worth reading.

Over the past seventy years the nappy has evolved, but like Rachel says in her article:

Too true as my daughter proved to me.
