17 month old throws fits during every diaper change--HELP!

I'm pregnant with baby #2 and my 17 month old is starting to act out. He gets really upset at every diaper change. He kicks his legs, screaming and crying. It makes the whole process take a lot…Continue

"I've just seen this post and had to comment! My daughter has screamed with every diaper change since the day she was born...so I've been dealing with this for 14 months! It sounds like I'm beating her every time I change her diaper…"

"My 16 month old daughter does the same thing.  Sometimes if I sing her favorite song (The Wheels on the Bus) it helps, but other times nothing works.  I notice that I'm the only one that she throws a tantrum with as well. …"

"I love this idea! My guy runs from me too. So, if you let 'em "win" a little by chasing after them and not catching them right away I bet it helps keep them happy. Thanks!"

"I've had this problem for months too!  my 20 month old boy goes nuts when I try to change his diaper.  The one thing that kinda helps is to chase him around for a minute when I pick up the diaper.  He sees me coming and takes…"

"I had to use a gate at the beginning for my daughter as well... if you think about it, it's not much different than the fact they are 'gated in' with their crib.  It's really just to keep them safe at night when we…"

"I guess I just feel bad about trapping him in his room with the gate, you know that silly mommy guilt. Yet, the gate is really my only option (or the closing the door like you said). It's been working out so far. He does shake the gate at first…"

"I had the same problem with my son for months, I tried everything but the one thing I did find that helped was if he held onto the diaper or I gave him a wipe and told him to wash his face and hands."

"I know what you mean about acting out during a diaper change! Both my kids were far more interested in playing than in laying there for a clean butt. What I found works well is singing to the kids... anything will do, whatever songs you know have…"

Toddler Bed Transition

About 2 weeks ago I started my 17 month old in the transition from a crib to the toddler bed. It's gone pretty well. I have a few blog posts describing the experience at my blog My Sunshine.  He sleeps through the night in his bed and rarely cries. The problem is getting him to stay in his room at the initial "good night." We have to use a baby gate on his door to keep him in his room. I don't like this but without it he just comes…See More

"Lol, this is what works for me too... I keep the lotion bottle, ointments, thermometers, etc. right by the changing table anyway, so giving those things that normally aren't for play has been working for me too.  Oh, and the remote…"

"I give my son something that I would not normally allow him to play with like my car keys, the remote control, the tube of A&D ointment, his dad's glasses (lol) whatever works."
