    Nappy changes have become so stressful since my 15 month old decided she doesn't like them. It's really bad when they're dirty nappies. She screams as soon as I lie her down and then arches her back, tries to sit up and basically makes my life as difficult as possible! I've tried distracting her with toys and stuff, but nothing seems to work for very long.

    Anyone have any advice?! I think she needs to start potty training, but she's been quite late in weight-bearing on her legs, so can't manage to hold herself up properly yet.

    We had this for a while and switched to pull ups so she could sit on my knee or stand to put a clean one on. Getting the dirty one off was just a case of pin down and do it ASAP lol
    We're back on normal nappies now

    Have you tried rolling her onto her side to change her? A little girl I work with hates nappy changes, and this works for her! Xx

    Thanks for the ideas! I'll give them all a go! Tonight wasn't too bad - I managed to distract her with a packet of baby wipes!!!
