John Stamos reveals his "genius" diaper changing trick and it involves a 'little butt spatula'
John is one dad who looks forward to changing diapers for his son Billy. He proudly shared about the little genius that is helping his hands stay clean while doing so.
Changing diapers can be fun sometimes and John Stamos seems to agree with it. “It’s the only time I really have him alone, without people around,” he said speaking to US Weekly at an event. “What I find strange is that I use, like, four salves and ointments and powders. And I have to use about four things after that.” But there is one little trick that ensures John does not get his hands dirty when he is attending to Billy's diaper changes and it is all thanks to a “little butt spatula” that the star calls “genius.” John also dished that one of Billy's favorite characters is Winnie the Pooh. There’s a guitar in the hotel room. I’m staying in right now. I played him ‘House at Pooh Corner’ by Kenny Loggins,” he said.
“His whole nursery is covered in Pooh, Winnie the Pooh," he revealed. John and his wife Caitlin McHugh welcomed their first child, Billy on April 10. The actor took to Instagram to announce the good news. “From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son. Welcome, Billy Stamos (named after my father),” he captioned a photo of the newborn nestled on his chest. “#NotJustanUncleAnymore #Overjoyed”.
Prior to this, John had asked Caitlin to marry him at the Anaheim, California, theme park and it looks like she is already excited to take their child there but John wants to wait for a little. “I’m postponing it as long as I can,” he said. “She wants to go now. She already wants to take him to Disney. He’s too small!”
While John does not hesitate to share his fun times with his little one on Instagram, not everyone is a big fan of that. Recently, the actor took to Instagram to share a picture of them enjoying their time in Times Square in NYC and he received mixed reactions to it. While many thought that it was a great way for a dad and son to bond, others seemed to think Billy wasn't old enough to be taken there.
A lot of people were commenting, ‘You can’t be holding like that and you shouldn’t be bringing him there yet, he’s too young!’ I have so many dad-shamers. It’s crazy," he said. However, these comments did not bring him down. He wants to concentrate on what is important and that is his family. "I spend the most time just daydreaming about what his and our life will be like,” he gushed. “There’s no wasting time anymore. That’s the best thing about being a dad.”
Meanwhile, talking to People John confessed that his first few days as a father have been really touching and emotional. “I cry a lot,” he said as he appeared at the red carpet of The Forum in Inglewood, California. “It’s more beautiful than anyone told me it would be. I’ve been waiting a long time."
