When I decided to write a post about our diaper changing challenges, I had no idea just how into his role Benjamin was going to be! I couldn’t have planned the events I am about to share with you if I tried!
Benjamin has been on the move for a few months now. From rolling over, to snow plowing (a form of crawling where babies slide on their heads), and now walking, he’s doing it all…and he’s been trying to do it all during every single diaper change as well! It’s been funny and frustrating all at the same time! The Huggies Little Snugglers that I just picked up at Walmart Neighborhood Market are keeping him dry and comfortable when he’s actually letting us put them on him! Here are some of our diaper changing challenges, and how we are trying to conquer them!
Every single time we put him on his changing table or mat to change his diaper, the first thing he wants to do is roll all over. Usually, he just gets himself sideways and grabs on to the side of the pad while laughing at us as we try over and over again to get him back onto his back. We were giving him toys to distract him, but he’s over that. Now, we give him random objects he doesn’t usually get to play with, hence the lens cap in the photo!
Rolling over sometimes leads to standing up if he’s on the mat or the pack-and-play changing table that doesn’t have a buckle. You can’t take your hands off him so everything has to be ready to go before I put him down. Then it’s back to attempting to distract him. If he just won’t cooperate, we move to the floor where it’s safer. Obviously, the lens cap didn’t keep him occupied too long.
The Escape Artist
Being on the floor gives him more room to roll, stand, and escape! Leave it to my boy to do just that while I was attempting photos for this post. Not only that, he peed right on the living room floor! He hasn’t peed without a diaper on in so long! I was in tears laughing that he actually did this, and like the great mom I am, kept taking pictures to document it! How do we solve this challenge? Be faster than the baby. Easy enough, right?
After all the rolling and running, I did eventually get a clean diaper on him and he was back at it! Thankfully through all these fun moments, we have Huggies. They keep Benjamin dry and comfortable through all of his antics and since we’ve started using them, all of our problems with leaky diapers overnight have stopped as well!
