It's not because of the smell, the color, or the amount...it's....

    because she won't stay still! I DESPISE diaper changes right now. As soon as I get Valerie down on the ground for a change and her diaper off, she wiggles out of my grasp, stands up, and runs away. I am literally running around chasing a baby who still has poop on her butt!!! I have no help from my OH because he just sits there, watching and laughing. Valerie thinks this is funny, so she continues to run around like a mad woman! When I finally get her down, she screams and screams until I get the diaper on. It's awful. This is insane....what do you ladies do to keep your toddler in one place during diaper changes?

    I just use pull ups, have you given them a try? Obviously Alasdair isn't walking yet but they work a lot better for him.

    I know she gets a kick out of watching OH laugh at her....but she still does the running away part when he's not here. Lol

    We've tried the toy bit and that will help out for MAYBE 5 seconds....haha! I'm going to try the pulls ups once we're out of the regular diapers. We'll see how that works....thanks for the advice ladies! :)

    I have been putting Brenn up on the changing table and it helps. But I totally get how you are feeling. I am just about to explode with being sick and tired of the fight it takes to get a clean diaper on Brenn along with fighting for him to take a nap, to get dressed, ect. ect. ect. UGGGG!

    Kathryn can't walk yet, but she hates lying on her back! the second I put her down she's twisting around flipping over (she's very strong) and I can't even get her pants off. I try pinning her down with my arm, she hates it and just screams though.
    What's been working lately is putting a large washcloth or hand towel over her face and saying "where's Kathryn?" It works well by distracting her, she's to busy pulling it off her face and I just keep doing it until I'm done. Now for a toddler I doubt that something so simple would work, so I have no idea how to help :dohh:
