A couple had their first baby. After a week or so the mother thought she could use a break and went shopping leaving the little baby with the proud father.
It was only a short while before the baby started to cry. The perplexed father tried all of the tricks that he remembered his wife doing but to no avail. Finally, after a half hour in desperation, he went to the doctor.
After checking all of the regular things, the doctor discovered it was just a dirty diaper.
“I don’t understand,” the perplexed father said. “I knew it was dirty, but the diaper package said specifically that it was good up to 8 pounds!”
