I don't know if my daughter is asserting her independence or starting to have mini tantrums but for the last month changing her diaper and getting her dressed as been awful...sometimes we have to hold her down screaming to change her diaper. I have been letting her walk around naked and sometimes if she is busy watching TV I can quickly change her. I have tried singing, distraction, giving her things (books, toys, etc) to help. Is this normal? My daycare provider says she doesn't see this behavior there. She also isn't sitting in her highchair anymore at the daycare to eat...would prefer to walk around and snack all day and the daycare woman isn't allowing that ( which I agree with to an extent) but my daughter is starving when she gets home...isn't learning natural consequences there yet. Any ideas??? Thanks ladies!
