My 7 month old daughter always cries when we are getting her dressed/undressed. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions??

I let my 6 month hold hold her clean nappy while I change her as she gets really wriggly it keeps her distracted for a bit...that or a toy usually does the trick. Best of luck : )

My son is a year, and doesn't like diaper changes or getting dressed/undressed. Heaven forbid I make him sit still for a minute! I give him a wipe to play with. He only gets them when we do a change, so it's not like a toy he can normally play with. Sometimes he attempts to eat it, sometimes he wipes his face, but I get the job done, and then throw the wipe away. And it's fun for him and easy for me. :)

I agree with Lisa. Make changing time fun time with toys, silly games and songs.

Well, it's perfectly understandable being restrained in a vulnerable position= no fun.



Few things I do: super fun and interesting item she normally doesn't play with. Diaper change while on my hip. Sitting in my lap while getting clothes on. Sing songs, play peek a boo with fingers and toes, and lots of raspberries on the belly.
