Does anyone’s baby dislike having their diaper changed? My baby was fine with it up until she mastered rolling over. Now she rolls around nonstop! Sometimes I’d distract her with a toy so that she can calm down. But most of the time, she’ll just cry and roll to her tummy. She prefers being in her tummy than her back. Any suggestions? Or is this inevitable and there’s nothing that can be done?

    My kid did the same exact thing once he learned to roll over. Now he does this twist thing hah. He also doesn’t like being changed most of the time. I often distract him with another clean diaper & then tell him what I’m doing step by step in a song.

    My son too. It was the worse around his 9 months mark. I just learned how to speed change/change while he’s standing up.

    I’m kind of starting to dread changing her diaper. I just start to feel really bad when she’s screaming once I lay her down 😞

    It’s absolutely normal! Don’t feel bad, I’m sure we’ve all dreaded the moment it comes down to grabbing the diaper to change our little ones. Just find what works best for you!

    My kids both went through this phase. Just try to make diaper changing as fun as you can and it will pass. I always sing songs, give belly kisses, talk to them, whatever I can think of. For a while, it was really hard though. Especially with my son; he’s way too strong for a baby. Remember, this too shall pass!

    My baby loved to change her diaper because I put butterflies around the changing table and she played with them. She’s now 1.6 years and sometimes gives a fuss. But I do is play with her making sounds and that helps me to not get stressed about it.. hope it helps!

    Same here. It is quite dramatic sometimes. I feel bad for my LO. Usually my mom comes around with a toy, when she is around, and LO calms down. I prep her and give her my keys or cell phone. I know but otherwise she gets diaper rash.

    My son sometimes liked getting his diaper changed and other times I struggled. For now just go with the flow, it MIGHT get better.

    I think it’s just a phase. My son did this too around the same age. We had to pin him down (without hurting him) to get his diaper on. I have put it on while he’s on his tummy, and while standing up too. He’s nearly 2 now and there are days he still fights diaper changes because he would rather play, or run around. Once I get his diaper off, he calms down and usually lets me finish changing him fight free.

    My son used to hate it, and it seemed like it was because he fed of off me not liking it.... now I do everything I can to make it fun. I make funny noises, play with his feet, tickle him when I’m done. Now we don’t have a problem... most times

    I used to lay a blanket out in the living room to allow my daughter some play space and then when she started scooting and rolling off it, I ended up letting her have my clean laundry basket that was perfect to throw toys in and let her learn how to sit up pretty much. Once she learned the sitting up then it was on to pulling herself up so be careful that when this starts, put her in the playpen or something that won’t flip like the basket.

    My son does this and I found he cries if he is awake fully so I do when he is first waking up and he is fine since he is just waking up and still has a tiny bit of sleepiness.

    Totally normal. They outgrow it. Try having special diaper changing toys they don’t see that often so when you hand it to them they are intrigued and stay put to play with it.

    My son did that but I'd just entertain as best as I could, like all of a sudden get theatrical and act overly excited singing his favorite songs while moving his limbs. Every now and then I'd switch it up with being suprised when i opened his diaper that there was pee in there. Now he can run when he hears the slightest crinkle of a diaper or wipe dispenser and he hides giving me a mini heart attack when I can't find him.
