    My DS was the same at this age , I dreaded nappy changes, actually turned my stomach. He grew out of it, still had the occasional battle and then swapped to nappy pants. I now change him on my knee and like @anewme sing, clap anything to distract him.

    Yes I have the strap - I had used masking tape to hide the buckles away and was never sure what they were for!!! I don't like the idea of a restraint but I'm beginning to understand now.

    What about a small bag of change time goodies? The idea of the stickers is a good one, also what about cheap noisy toys like maracas, castanets, tambourine etc.

    This was great advice in the end, so greatful I have a change table with a buckle!!! I started strapping dd in (I had stuck the straps underneath previously so she wouldn't play with them). She doesn't like it but it keeps her still and I have both hands free to change her as quickly as possible so it's much much better now!!! I change her clothes on the go or in my lap. She fusses but it's not the screamfest and fighting it was before.

    Edit: I also have toys just for the change table but she still mostly throws them in anger lol.

    I didn't read all the replies so apologies if I'm off the mark but how about helium balloons, DD had some to pull on/play with while I changed her at around 10 months and she LOVEEEED them.

    I used to shove something up DD's shirt (like a toy). While she was trying to fish it out I'd quickly clean her up. Was the only thing that distracted her.
