Doesn't Want Diaper Changed

Toddlers eventually begin making the connection between a dirty diaper and the time getting it changed takes away from other activities. And then they start objecting to diaper changes, either by thrashing about, fussing loudly or both.

To help make diaper changing simpler, try diverting your little one’s attention with songs and tickles or a small, novel object he or she can examine while you do what you need to.

In a few months, it’s possible that your child may be ready to sit on a potty a few times a day, preferring to void there than in the diaper. Some kids are ready to begin potty learning as early as 18 months of age. Most will not be ready for another 6 months or more.
