  • My four month old is the same way. She hates it. I just try to distract her with something or by talking to her and dress her as fast as I can.

  • Distraction, distraction, distraction. I sing, flip my hair around all crazy-like, do a little dance, whatever I have to do! If anyone witnessed it, they'd swear I was nuts. It keeps my son (who's learning how to pitch a nice little fit while being dressed) happy, or at least entertained.

  • My son was like this at first, but I guess he eventually outgrew it. We just kept trying to make it a fun time. We still blow on his belly, give him kisses on the neck, play with his feet or hands. Try anything you can think of and stick with whatever works. Good Luck!

  • hang a mobile above the changing table and dress him there. play a game where you say "where did your fingers go? oh there they are!!" as they slip thru the arm hole of the shirt. be silly and have fun.
