Stash changes for stages

Prefolds jellyrolled and covers were great for a newborn that didn't move. Fitteds and covers or wool covers were great too. I love flips with padfolded flats. But with a 1 year old who flips over and stands in a second and is really strong and I have to fight to get a diaper on, pockets with velcro seem the best because I can put them on in awkward positions lol. Wish I could afford some more pocket diapers.

Re: Stash changes for stages

I love my varied stash because different things work and different times..

but I also don't allow gymnastics while diaper changing is going on. Babies/toddlers lay still get their diaper changed and then they can wiggle and giggle to their hearts content.

Re: Stash changes for stages

How do you get them to do this? My daughter is 14 months old and very determined. It's a fight to get her to lie down.

Re: Stash changes for stages

I used to use a bit of bribery by letting them hold my phone or the tv remote, which were otherwise forbidden items! Plus I got really good at a speedy change (we used pockets though, first velcro BG's then snap FB's)

I always grab a book or toy or lately he wants to hold his brush. If he doesnt have something he fights tooth and nail! My stash has changed from stage to stage too, and from day to day I always grab something different. There's no one perfect diaper, that's why we need so many!

A toy or some other distraction along with a firm lay still command. If they are being very wild on the changing table then a small tap on the butt works. I am not mean, it doesn't hurt, leave any marks (before I get flamed) but it does get their attention. It only takes once.

Messing around on the changing table is dangerous. I am not changing on the floor, it hurts my back. Plus I am not the only one who changes diapers. I would not want someone who watches my children to have to deal with a wild child that is a PITB to change a daiper. that is not fair to them.

I have given toys and such in the past, my boys really like headbands lol! And even though the newbie is only 2months I have already gone through several "what works/fits best now" changes. I've done some stash changing but I'm trying not to do too much because I feel like it changes every week!

When DD was in that stage I used bribery too, with forbidden items like my phone, ziploc bags, rubber bands, etc. She's now 18 months and will lay perfectly still until I'm done, but if it is a really bad poo that I'm gonna need longer time to clean her up I'll give her something to play with.
