    This is my 9mo. Takes me 45 minutes of a morning to dress her. That isnt including changing her nappy. And we use cloth nappies with snaps. So harder to do while she is rolling around acting like a fruitloop.
    I make a game of it and also hand her whatever is in reach that will stop her rolling and crawling around the change table. She hates lying down so I sit or stand her up when her nappy is done to dress her. Distraction is definitely the key.
    As for discipline as Vp said I dont think there is such a thing for a baby. While he is getting a reaction its a fun game. Redirect his attention when he bites to something else and just a firm no. He will pick it up.

    Default How to restrain 13 month old for a nappy change

    @heartstringz I hope you can take some solace in the number of hubbers who have posted here who have had similar experiences. Your son is normal, please don't take his behaviour personally. I know it's frustrating but he's just doing his thing.

    PPP have a free podcast with lots of episodes, so if you are struggling to find real people to support you that might be a help to you.

    I'm going to be honest, I feel concerned that you called your son horrible. Was it just a vent? Because I totally understand if it was, but if you feel it long term you really must bite the bullet for his sake and your own and seek help for how you're feeling. There is no shame in it, but you really need to try and stop putting out roadblocks and bite the bullet. Anxiety bites, I know that, and I am hugely empathetic to how you are feeling.

    ETA something that really helped me in my teaching: the days when I feel despondent about my job are generally the days where I have walked in expecting 100% compliance and enthusiasm and no misbehaviour. When I go to work anticipating what may happen, I not only prepare for it better (like hand out the atlases instead of expecting a group of kids to get up and get their own without jostling each other/stopping to chat etc), but don't feel so upset when things don't go exactly to plan. Your son sounds like he is very spirited and strong willed like my own, and while this can be extremely challenging, I believe it also bodes well for his strength of character as he grows up.

    I know it's a cliche but they really do grow up so fast.

    Come late into this and haven't read all the posts yet.
    For me it easier to sit on a chair and change them on my lap. Have everything ready including a few wipes already out.

    Add I no talk to him before and during. Tell what you are going to /are doing. Talk about what great thing you are going to together after.
    If he bites. Tell in firm voice "no we don't bite". move him so it harder to bite again.

    I used stickers for my son when he was at that stage. I used to put them on his hands and he would try to unstick them. I do remember looking longingly at the duct tape in the laundry cupboard at one stage, but decided it was probably not a great idea to stick him to the table lol!

    Does your DH have the same trouble changing him? How does he handle it?

    I might get flamed for this but we used to change him on the floor and sit with our legs out in front and used them to hold his arms down if distraction with something (we found an old TV remote and took the batteries out and he thought that was great) didn't work. Let me stress we never hurt him, just used it as a block for him to roll around and grab things.

    No judgement.

    Nappies, brushing teeth, giving panadol... All required pinning the kid down at some stage in this house!
