My first child did this all the time. My second one has never done it. I would change my son on his diaper changing station in his room. I could keep several toys that he had "forgotten" about (not played with in awhile) there. I would give him one every time I changed him. He was usually so excited to see a "new" toy he played with it and I got him changed in peace. Good luck!

My son NEVER laid still for a diaper change. Thank goodness he's out of diapers now. :)) Find things he likes to play with. Usually items that aren't toys seem to work. Like keys, a magazine, a hairbrush, Christmas cards?? Something he doesn't normally get to play with to distract him. My son would just toss toys to the side but if I gave him something new or something he doesn't get to play with often it seemed to distract him long enough to do the job.

Make silly faces, sing, talk, have him point out his nose, eyes, ears.... whatever you can think of to hold his attention away from the diaper change!

Yup, My LO doesn't have time to lay around! LOL I almost have to lay on him to get a diaper on him. Getting him dressed in the morning or jammies at night is almost an impossible feat. I'm hoping this won't last long.

get used to it. i know that sonds kind of mean, but my son has hated having his diaper changed since he was born and it's only gotten worse. try and offer him a distraction, do it really quick, and don't change him constantly, just when the diaper is noticeably wet or he pooped. also if u can change him standing up if he just peed

It might help to have a special toy (I use an empty medicine box with a sock in it - fancy!) that he only gets to hold on the change table.

I agree with the other posts, its a phase. My 14mnth old is currently going through this stage.

My elder 2 outgrew it pretty quickly.

Yeah my son is doing that now and he's only 8 months. Don't worry he'll stop it eventually. My two year old used to do that when she was around that age too but she stopped when she realized i wasn't going to stop either LOL it's normal, he'll get over it :)

That's right. It is just a phase. Dont worry Donna. You will soon find yourself worrying about something else in a couple of days :)
