No matter what I do my DD hates having her nappy changed. On the odd occasion she lies perfectly still and it's over and done with really quickly and I praise her for it but the majority of the time she wriggles and wriggles and screams and cries when I lie her down to change her nappy. I've seen other posts saying try pull ups but she is quite small for her age and we've only just gone into size 4 huggies and I don't think there are pull ups in her size, plus she won't keep still to let me wipe her bottom... what can I do, it's driving me nuts? (she's not much better when i try and get her dressed either so i'm not sure she'd stand still for long enough to get the pull ups on!!!).
I can sympathise with this. My DS went through the same stage a couple of months ago, every nappy change was a battle. I posted on here on a lovely MNer advised giving forbidden toys like remote controls. It worked Obviously, if you're about & about this isn't so great but it's fine for when you're at home. Thankfully, he seems to have outgrown this now, it only lasted a month or so (he's 14 months now)
I did it standing up. Or gave them my car keys or something. I think the actual putting them on their backs is what enrages a lot of toddlers. You could also try it on a mat on the bed or something if you usually do it on the floor.
We have special books for nappy changing--big ones with lots of pictures, page of all jungle animals, that sort of thing. DD2 is a geek-in-training so it really works for her, she loves to look at the different animals and make the sounds. Also we change her on the floor and I don't wipe unless it's absolutely necessary.
