How To Change "Changing Time"

It has been years since I have had a baby of my own~as my baby is going to be 29 years old in Feb!! My goodness~just writing that makes me feel old. But my kids know how to keep me young~having 10 grandchildren there was a time that we had more then one baby in diapers. So~there have been many diapers changed at this house.
And~I swear that each one was so hard to change when it came time for that diaper change. As~they squirmed~wiggled~twisted and turned! Most of the time that diaper ended up on the wrong way..What a site that was to see.LOL I sure laughed over the years watching my kids change their kids diapers. 
But of course~when I was there I had to jump in to help!{Isn't that what Grandma's are for?!?}  We had many nicknames over the years~Wiggle Butt,Squirmy Squirt and Sugar-Britches just to name a few.

Some of the tips that I have used over the years are~
Give them something to play with.As if they are distracted they tend to forget that you are changing them and concentrate on the toy.Make it something colorful or musical that will keep their attention.
Make funny faces~as we all know how much kids love to laugh.Besides~that is one time that I can act silly without everyone looking at me crazy.We all know how to make funny faces and soon the little ones will be making a game out of it with you.
Sing songs or little nursery rhymes with them as this is the time that I taught my grandchildren many of the songs that I sang to my kids.
Let them look at a book if they are old enough~as there many hard cover books that have your child's favorite cartoon or toy.
It's a job that has to be done so you might as well make it fun for both of you. I sure wish that I had the

 As no matter what way your little one wants to move~You will be able to Slip these right on! Diapers make it easy to change active, squirmy babies of all kinds – just catch, slip-on, and release. Now that is what I call a easy change!

So what about you? Do you have some diaper changing tips to share? I'd love to hear them!

  1. I usually buy only Pampers but I saw a commercial for these and decided to try them. These are the worst diapers ever. Not only are they extremely difficult to get on, my daughter also got diaper rash for the first time. I would not recommend these at all.
