Poor widdle daddy MATTHEW KOSTER. He just got so FWUSTRATED with that darn squirmy baby! Just wouldn't lay still while Daddy changed his diaper! So Daddy inflicted three leg fractures, three rib fractures, and bruised the baby's forehead.

Seriously, since we started Dastardly, we have found A LOT of stories about daddies flipping out over diaper changing. This seems to be something the male species is not entirely too fond of.

OMAHA, Neb. -- Police have arrested a man on a child abuse charge after he said he became frustrated when changing his son's diaper.

According to a police report, officers were asked to investigate a possible case of child abuse after a 4-month-old boy was found to have injuries consistent with child abuse at the Children's Hospital.

Authorities said the boy's parents noticed swelling in the infant's right leg and took him to the emergency room Thursday.

Doctors said they found the boy had multiple injuries, including three bone fractures in his right leg, three rib fractures and a bruise on his forehead. When doctors asked the boy's father what happened, the report said, he told them the injuries may have happened when he was changing the boy's diaper and got frustrated.

Police arrested the boy's father, Matthew Koster, 35, on a felony child abuse charge. The boy's mother, Alisa Carpenter, 24, was cited on a charge of misdemeanor child abuse/neglect.
