How can I make nappy changes easier?

If your child is rolling like a crocodile at nappy change time, it's time to dial up the fun.

It's tempting to dial up the sternness - you want to express how important it is that they stay still - you certainly don't want poo everywhere. But being stern is likely going to make the experience worse for the both of you and continue the cycle of difficult changes. In a dream world you BOTH should be looking forward to this time of connection.

What I forgot to mention in this video is the power of changing them side-on (instead of you looking directly at their bum) as it's much better for eye contact and connection. It's worth learning to change this way.

Try these tips and see if anything changes for you. Is there anything else you do at nappy time that helps?
