Scream bloody murder when you put diaper and clothing on them? He is 4.5 mo old and just started doing this about ten days ago. He flails and kicks and screams, but It's too cold to let him run around naked! He also just recently started waking up every two hrs at night again which I just assumed was the 4 mo wakeful period, but now this clothing tantrum stuff...ugh

Yep. Little honey hates diaper changes and putting clothes on. The ONLY thing that helps is when I have the little girl I look after come stand over her and act goofy to distract her. They love each other. She also still wakes up a few times a night still. She's 11 months

This my son is 16months and wooh he puts up a fight


Quoting BridgetMc:

My almost 10 month old fights diaper changes and wardrobe changes. She hates getting dressed and kicks and flails and screams. It lasts until one of us wins (usually me, thankfully) them she's fine once she's dressed.

Mine hates clothes. Recently, I'll sing the ABCs or count and it distracts her long enough for me to change her diaper or dress her.

Does he have eczema? OR a rash that could bother him more with clothing on?

Ds hated laying on his back. ot wasn't really the clothes- it was the laying flat. I started laying him on this super soft chenille blanket he has and loosely wrapping him in it while I dressed him. He looooved the feel of it on his skin. He would smile and wiggle to feel it more. It ended our struggles. :)
