Usage of Diapers & that too many

Yes, diaper changing sessions for babies is a long tern procedure which goes on till the baby is around 2 - 3 years of age. This means that on an average a baby changes about 8000 diapers till it is trained for toilet.

Loving female voice

Yes, this is a true and a known fact that babies love the sound and voice of a female and prefer the same over the voice of the male. This might be the reason why babies are more close to their age during infancy.
