Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor and Donna looking after a baby when neither of them quite know what to do is funny. It's the sort of story made more interesting by time travel, once we learn where the baby's come from. It's a good idea that I can see being canon.

The Doctor turned back to the wriggling child (who was definitely a boy), trying not to look at the dirty nappy or the used wipes.

“What’s that stuff for?” he asked, waving his hand at a small grey container.

Donna sauntered over to the kitchen table where the baby lay gurgling on a changing mat, kicking his legs, and picked up the item in question.

“It’s for preventing nappy rash.”

“It’s for what?”

“Oh for god’s sake, just smear some on the kid’s bum and put a nappy on him,” she snapped, thrusting it into his hands.

If you like this, don't forget to tell the author.
