Aha! Parenting and diaper changing.

Is your little person bouncing off the table and twisting and turning? No toddler wants to be swooped up, then disrobed when she is busy playing with her toys. Here are some skills to learn for now. Most will work… sometimes. You will learn to improvise.

Often just slowing down and connecting changes everything.

Get on your child’s level. Make your request an invitation. Let her walk to the changing area and remind her she is all wet. Ask her if she can take her own diaper off. Let her have a toy to distract her. Tell her you are going to clean her all up nice and fresh. Have her participate in the change. Use this time to chat and not see it as something ‘yucky.’ She will hopefully respond in a positive way.
