it is amazing to me that my 9 month old will raise hell to let me know that her diaper is dirty, but then refuses to let it be changed! what's up with that? i mean, i couldn't imagine what it would be like to sit around in poopie all smelly and nasty, but keep it on because i would rather do something else. were/are your kids ever like that?

I didn't have that problem. I had the exact opposite, they'd go potty in their diapers then take them off!! YUCK!

My daughter is 17 months old - She has done this for a while. She goes through stages were one time its fine change her diaper no problem the next time its a fit and a half. I think it depends on what she is doing. Is she busy playing? Then I have no chance of changing her diaper - doesn't matter how wet or smelly it is. If shes not busy and just wants attention then I can change it all day long. I try to tell her if you sit still its 20 seconds - the more you move the longer it takes. She likes to scoot up so the diaper isn't where it should be. She will do that 4 or 5 times until I'm like LUANN STOP IT!!! I think when it comes to changing diapers she gets just as mad at me as I do her. For different reasons of course! I can't wait till we are fully potty trained!

what age do you think you will begin potty training? i know that my daughter is too young, but we try to identify when she poopies and pees at each diaper change. occassionally she will actually tell us that she has gone by saying "poo-poo" but it doens't happen very often. :)

We put her potty in the bathroom when she turned 1. She was intrested in it. So we let her play with it she would lift the lid and put it down. Then after about a month she would sit on it. Every time I went into the bathroom she would follow and sit on her potty. So after a few weeks I started taking her pants off and putting her on it. She goes some times. I have realized that when she says pee pee its after she is done. I need to catch her before. Its hard for me to potty train because my lovely husband her daddy is with her in the morning till around 2pm when she goes to grandmas till I get her at 430. Grandma and I are potty training daddy isn't. He says he isn't ready. I have tried to explain that she IS! I guess I have to work on him more then her at this point. Anyway - when your daugther is ready she will do it. Put the toilet out and hope for the best. Most people don't start till around 2 I started early. She likes to sit on the potty because we say peeeeee peeeeee. I guess she likes the words lol.

How can it be that your 9 month old baby "refuses to let it be changed". I'm amazed. If she can "put her foot down" when she is so tiny, how will it be when she wants her own way when she is older? Surely you are the mother and should be in control!

she walks now. so, she has figured out how to turn and push herself up to walk away. when we are at the changing table, she tries to throw her legs over the side and get down. she has figured out how to climb off the sofa and on and off my bed. she has started asserting her independence, so when she doesn't want to do something, she finds a way to get away.

My daughter never complains when she's done something in her nappy so i am constantly check to see if it needs changing or not. When i know there's something in there & it needs to be changed, i end up running around the house for what seems like ages just trying to catch her so i can get the new nappy on there! It is a bit of a pain but once she's caught, i can do it all quickly & then she can go off & do her thing! I have a feeling it's just a phase they go through but wait until your daughter is running around the house etc - then you'll get your daily exercise just trying to catch her for a nappy changes.

mine has actually been walking for a little over a month now. she has a habit of standing up and running off with no diaper on at all. i usually let her be diaper free for a little while to help prevent rashes.

My daughter is all about letting you know when she is stinky. She grabs her pull up and yells "YUCK!" She like your daughter hates to have it changed though. My daughter has decided that she need to try to kick me in order to prevent me from changing her.

yes, she hated the changing process becuase she was lying down on her back. so I finally resorted to taking her and washing her up in the bathroom. Instead of using baby wipes to clean I would clean her like I was bathing her and she loved it and never cried again.

My daughter is almost 7 months old and she will not be still for diaper changes. Once she figured out how to roll over there was/is no stopping her.

my daughter is five and 1/2 months old and she lets me know when her diaper is dirty and then she lifts her butt up for me to change her. She hates to be dirty. I would too though. He will be potty trained at an early age.

I had one son who just didn't care at one point, but as they get older, they start to care because it starts to feel icky for them. By that time is was almost time for them to start potty training. You son is pretty young right now so he'll do those type of funny things. my nephew doesn't like his diaper changed by his parents. he wiggles around and screams, but with me he's perfectly fine. In my experience, once the child becomes mobile, then they don't like to sit still to change that often. no matter what they did. My younger nephew is about 7 months now and he wiggles around every time i change him. Thats about all he does though, no screaming or anything.

I have an 8 month old and everytime I get ready to change her diaper she seems to keep turning over and I have to give her something just to make her sit for the little time it takes to change her. But of course that don't work all the time.
