Diaper Changing

It's a fight to change my 13 month diaper. He is literally getting ready to roll over before I even put him on the changing table or bed, etc. I seem to recall my sister having a hard time with her son as well. I find myself changing his diaper while he stands up - and that is pretty tough task too. Anyone else dealing with this and got any good pointers?

  • i still have that problem. most times i hold her down with one hand and i have gotten really good with changing it standing up. my husband is even amazed at how well i can do it standing and i actully think its a bit easier then tring to hold them down.

  • I take care of a 12 month old who will do this and I start singing (plus moving faster!). It stops him cold and I can get the diaper changed. He loves to hear people sing. Just one idea...............
