  • They are nice and warm and then you take their clothes off to change them. Do you have a heating pad on your changing table? That always helped us!! Good Luck!

  • Sometimes. It's been a long time since I had to change a diaper but when I do I try to entertain with peek-a-boo or talking funny or something along those lines.

  • yes.

    I used to do as much as I could ahead and then rush through Like I'd open the diaper, pull up the wipes, take the top off the ointment if I was using it.

    Also I found that the night dresses helped a lot. (the ones that just have an elastic bottom. We used to call them baby bags.

  • My son will be 2 in September...and some days he is perfectly fine with being changed and other days he is a MONSTER about it!! I usually try to give him something to distract him...but sometimes he will NOT have it (especially when he has poop) so i just have to throw my leg over him to pin him down ( and change him while he screams at me...

  • My son hated it when he was a newborn... He didn't like being undressed and he for sure didn't like the cold air on his little pee pee. LOL it doesn't last very long... they just gotta get used too it.

  • My daughter hated it as a newborn. After a few weeks, she didn't mind it as much.

  • Newborns usually don't like being naked. I asked my ped about it when my son was a newborn and she said it is normal, they outgrow it. Suddenly being naked=suddenly being cold=sad baby. They get over it and want to take the diaper off themselves soon enough. :P

  • Some babies don't like it. However, is it possible she has a small rash?
