  • i had this same problem. my son is 2 now but when he was younger he would hate getting his diaper changed! i would just give him somethin to play with or a little treat and he was fine.

  • My son was like that for about 3 months, he just turned 19months. I think it is just a stage. It was very frustrating and it got to the point I had to put my leg over him and hold him down or there would be poopy EVERYWHERE! but I did what I had to do to get it changed and tried to be patient but let him know no matter what he did he was getting his diaper changed and he seemed to outgrow it! Good luck!

  • well if your child dosen't want to have a diper change then maybe its time to start potty traing. or try to make diper changing fun for your child instead of making it just seem like a chore. try tickeling and funny faces make a game out of it.

  • She is the perfect age for the 3-day toilet training method (it's an ebook and recommends starting around 18 months).  My son hated diaper changes, so I taught him where big boys put their pee and poop.  It took one week and we had no more diapers at 19 months.  It was new and fun for him.  I put the potty chair in the playroom and gave him an m&m and a sticker.  I took him to the store to pick out a potty and new underwear.  It was all very exciting and positive.  He is two years old now and we've had 5 glorious months of no diapers and he is very proud of himself.
