My son freaks out when we change his diaper now. He is almost one and When he sees it he starts crawling away fast. It's not ALWAYS a problem but a lot of the time he doesn't like it. I've tried just about everything from singing to him, tickling him, talking to him; he still cries though. Any ideas? This only started about 2 weeks ago, before this is was never a problem

My son is almost 9 months and he has been doing that occasionally from time to time when he gets his diaper change. I usually have a toy that he likes next to the changing table to entertain him with it while I change the diaper. This has worked for me, maybe try it? Good luck! I know it's extra difficult when they do that to change their diaper.

Wow I thought I was the only parent with this problem :D My daughter does this every single time we change her diaper. I trying giving her something to keep her occupied but for the most part she will continue to cry. But you got to do what you got to do to get the diaper on.

Try giving him a sticker.My son tries getting the sticker of his fingers and finds it fun,that helped me to change his diaper. But he was bit older than 1, does your son put things in his mouth?if yes maybe the sticker trick isnt a good idea yet. Or try letting him rip a tissue.I would entertain him with blowing the tissue around . If you need a new "toy" put some rice into an empty plastic bottle and close it well.its fun for them to shake it and look at the rice inside..wish you good luck!

Its a nightmare! My 10 month old does it every diaper change, he squirms and kicks and does anything to get away from me! The only thing that works to get him to lay still for a split second is having a bottle on hand, but sometimes that doesn't even work. I feel your pain!
