10 Month Old Suddenly showing resistance to everything

Joanne - posted on 10/17/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 10 month old girl has suddenly started to resist getting dressed, diaper changes, going in high chair for food and going to bed. She could always be a little fussy if tired but now she tries to fling herself out of my arms or roll away. I try to make it a pleasurable experience and talk and sing but that doesn't seem to work anymore. She has been crawling and starting to pull herself up for a few weeks now and I try to give her plently of time on the floor but she does get tired.

Have you experienced something similar of can you give me any advice? Much appreciated!

It is normal for them to exhibit some form of independance at this age especially when they figure out they can do it on their own and then when they find they can move and go staying still just is not on the agenda. Just keep sitting her down for her meals like always, as for getting dressed/diaper changes you are just going to have to do the best you can and as for going to bed set a good routine for her to follow.
