Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg boasts that he can change a nappy in 20 seconds. The competitive dad who times himself to get better at changing nappies shares his tip: "The trick is to slide the new diaper under the old one," he said.

5. HPV vaccine is effective
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released new findings that show children greatly benefit from receiving HPV immunization. The study, which was published in the journal Pediatrics, reports that there have been 64 percent less cases of teen girls becoming infected with HPV and a decline in cases of genital warts over the last decade, thanks to the vaccine. The CDC suggests that girls and boys get the vaccine to be protected from the potentially cancer-causing disease. (popsugar.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
