  • I think it depends on the age...usually after 3 months my children use to smile and giggle.

  • My dd doesn't like to hold still for them, so I ask her to hold the clean diaper. It distracts her long enough for me to clean her up.

  • i used to work in a daycare and had a little bot that hated getting his diaper changed...his mom said it was bcuz he didnt like to stay still and jus wanted to play...maybe give him a toy while changing him or as i did i played peek a boo while changing the little fellow..

  • There are stages to diaper changes. They may scream at first, then they may laugh, then they may scream again. Once they get mobile they won't want to sit still for a change.

    What I usually do is have my child hold the diaper, a wipe, or diaper cream while I change them and talk to them through the whole thing. I am taking off your wet diaper, now I am going to wipe you, now I am putting on the new diaper. It engages them and give them something to do. It will get better.

  • Yes. I always have a toy or book nearby so they are distracted.
