Diaper Change or Wrestling Match?

He Only Looks Docile

I knew as Tate got older, changing his diaper might get challenging. I just had no idea how challenging. We’ve recently learned that he is tipping the scales at a whopping 24 lbs, and didn’t need anyone to tell us that the kid is tough. He plays rough and his developed a mind of his own.

Trying to get him to do anything he doesn’t want to do is becoming increasingly more difficult. Throw a stinky, sticky, poopy, mess into the mix and it gets really tricky.

Even though I have to wrestle him to keep him from sitting up, I actually find it easier to change him on the changing table. When I try to change him on the floor it’s a free for all. So much space to scoot, so many directions to roll, all the freedom to kick wildly. The methods I have to implement to make it through a floor change have me feeling like I am playing a rough and tumble game of twister – a foot on each arm, one hand holding his feet in the air, with a single hand left to clean and diaper.

So I have to ask, do you have any tips on keeping a baby with a mind of his own occupied for diaper changes? I’m all ears.
