So a couple of my kids did not like their diaper changed, so how did I handle it? It was very difficult. It´s very frustrating. You change their diaper a lot in one day. So what I did is I tried to distract them. I would have their favorite toy, and every time I would pretend like I am not going to change their diaper. I would go oh, look at your toy, lay down and they would almost not notice it or have the TV on or give them another sippy cup at that time if I really needed them to lay down, like I was changing a poopy diaper and they needed to lay down. Otherwise, I started my kids in pull ups really early because they didn´t like the laying down parts so I would just change it standing up. And it really worked. Put their diaper back on. Also, one of my kids would take their diapers off in the night and their bed would be wet. It was a nightmare. So I got some footy pajamas and cut out the feet and flipped it around and zipped it up the back. And then, they couldn´t take off their clothes. Then, it solved that problem.
