How do you keep an almost 1 yo still while you change his diaper?

My son does not want to stay still while I change him. No matter what I give him to play with. Any ideas?

  • We used to play the Bug Game. I would tell them that the bugs were coming so they had to stay still. While I was changing them a new bug would come. Sometime it was a kissing bug, this is when I would kiss them all over. Other times it was the tickle bug and I would tickle them.

    Try not to get to mad when he moves all over. Remember there are not many things in his life that he can control and this is one of them.

    Good Luck
