My very active DS is 9 months old and screams the house down every single nappy change. He also screams when I put him in his car seat, and sometimes in the high chair. For a while I just thought he was overtired/hungry/just wanted to get down and crawl but now I am thinking there is some other issue. He is a very unsettled baby in general and I literally cringe when we go out places, just waiting for him to scream the place down. He has never been a great sleeper, especially at night. I've have seen a number of doctors. Anyone have any idea what if anything might be wrong with him?

DS is 16 months old and screams during nappy changes too. I do them in front of the TV now to distract him. It works, sometimes.

Has he been doing this for awhile or only just started? My DS started hating nappy changes at around that age as that's when he became mobile and he didn't like me doing anything that restricted his right to move around. He is 17 months now and still hates nappy changes and will often scream the whole time. I try to give him something to distract him and just do it as fast as I can.

I guess I'm just thinking back to when my DS1 was in nappies, he would just lay there and play with a toy or something while I changed him. However he wasn't mobile until at least 9 months. DS2 just cannot be distracted when I change him and doesn't really care for toys, he just wants to be moving! I just thought it was strange that he screams in the highchair and in the car also. I'm considering seeing a chiro about it.
