I was kind of disappointed with myself. When I had decided to invite the whole team to contribute a tip or idea centered around baby week I thought I would have much more ideas then I did. You would think that after having 2 babies I might have some, but I really drew a blank.
This is what I came up with to share.
I don't know about any of you, but getting my just shy of 1 year old to stay still during a diaper change is nearly impossible. He twists over and is on his way long before I can even get a wipe out. So, what I have found to work is changing him on the floor. I put him between my legs and then put my feet on top of his arms. I don't have to press hard at all, just enough to pin him down. Then, when I lift up his legs, he isn't going anywhere. He surprisingly doesn't get upset like he does if I am wrestling him around with out pinning him. I hope this helps anyone out there.
Please don't use this picture of my little guy. Thanks!
