Hi, I have an 8 1/2 mth old girl who hates having her nappy changed, clothes changed, going in the car seat, going in the pram and going into the cot! I try distracting with toys, songs, random objects, me being silly, talking but it's a battle most of the time. The worst is the crocodile roll she does the second I take her nappy off, and the arching of the back when trying to put her in the car seat. She is surprisingly strong :/ Would love some advice or reassurance that this phase will end soon! Thanks.

I have no advice but my 10 month old is exactly the same. It drives me nuts! Sometimes I need 2 people just to help change her nappy!

My DS is the same, he once pulled the clock off the wall above his change table - that was certainly not a consideration when setting up the nursery!
I often undress him while he's standing up next to the cot, not sure if your bub is standing yet. I often give him a toy he doesn't get at any other time, maybe buy a new one? Or sometimes giving him non-toys works, eg his Bepanthen and Bonjela tubes, or comb.
Also, I now give him finger foods for lunch and he is MUCH happier at all three of his meal times.
Also, have you tried the new pull up nappies? You can get a sample if you go to Huggies' website. I hope you can find something that works!
