My baby boy is 8 months old and has excellent motor skills. He is extremely active and curious about everything around him - wonderful right?! For the most part YES! Uh, except when it's time to change his diaper. Mr. Busybody won't stay still all the time. He has long since discovered his man parts and keeping his hands clear of that area is quite an excercise! He does cooperate when he feels like it and it's not too bad if it's just a wet diaper...But he is now eating solids and when it's time to change THAT diaper is when it causes concern. Oh I miss the days when he'd just look at me and smile at me with his sweet angelic face...Now he wants to show me how good he is at flipping over & crawling away. Not to mention his kicking skills! Like I said, not so bad with the wet diapers...potentially dangerous with the dirty ones! I say potentially because I haven't had any disasters yet. Key word: "yet".
How do you more experienced moms deal? Distraction tactics? Pinning him down? Tag team with hubby's help? Any horror stories out there?
Disclaimer: Sorry if this is TMI. I tried to be as tasteful as I could. Really...my sincerest apologies. I held back and didn't describe this as graphically as I could have. Then again...we are all moms and nothing grosses out a mom right?! Well....OK, I'm human - there's lots that still gross me out.
