If you have diaper changed toddlers … You will understand each of these things!
If you are a father or mother, you will know that when you most believed that you dominated fatherhood or motherhood, your children suddenly change everything you knew. One day you sleep well and then you spend two weeks sleeping badly. When you thought that you already knew how to change the diaper, your child becomes more restless and changing it can become a challenge.
It is not the same to change a diaper to a baby than to a small child who already knows how to walk … and run. If you have changed your children diapers, then these things you will understand perfectly. And if you’ve never done it, read it for when it’s your turn.
IT’S A FIGHT OF THE TITANS
Nobody told you that changing your child’s diapers would involve a fight between titans. Your child will only want to escape because there are many other things, activities that are much more interesting than waiting for you to change the diaper. With the slightest carelessness your child will run away.
IT HAS MORE STRENGTH THAN YOU IMAGINED
The same child who refuses to walk 3 steps to the car will suddenly start to be stronger than you in a matter of seconds. He is the strongest creature in the universe and changing his diaper becomes a moment of strategy, either you entertain him or simply time will be wasted.
YOU FEEL POWERLESS
Crying is okay if you feel helpless, you will feel better. But even if you get frustrated and cry now, you should still change the diaper so it is better that you take courage and find out how to entertain your child and be able to change the diaper as quickly as possible.
IF YOU DON’T END UP WITH POOP EVERYWHERE, IT WILL HAVE BEEN A SUCCESS
Although changing the diaper has been somewhat complicated, actually with so much movement if you do not end up with poo rubbed all over, the diaper change will have been a great success, because it will mean that you will have won this ‘battle’, at least for now.
HAVE YOU EVER BRIBED HIM
You do not have to hide it, you have ever bribed him to be able to change your child’s diaper with peace of mind. While bribery is not okay, it is not okay to get too angry about changing a diaper or losing your temper. In this sense, perhaps you saw yourself in the ‘obligation’ to bribe him either with a chocolate bar, with using your phone, with a song on. Youtube … Anything that would give you a few minutes of peace to change the diaper without too many altercations … Don’t worry, you weren’t the first to do it and you won’t be the last.
THE DIAPER HAS BECOME TOO COMPLICATED
There is nothing worse than a toddler squirming, screaming, and crying to avoid being still when the diaper is changed. When the time has come to change your child’s diaper, you take a deep breath, pick up the diaper and think about how you can do it to achieve it without ending up being a pitched battle.
MAKE DIAPER CHANGING EASIER
If everything you have read above happens to you and changing the diaper is an odyssey, then you need to start thinking about finding solutions to make it easier for you and your little one. These moments do not have and should not be tense, so it is necessary that you arm yourself with patience and think that your child needs you. For it:
-Have everything prepared in the right place. Don’t waste time looking for items or your child will run away.
-Distract your child with your inner cheerleader.
-Use diapers that are easy to change.
-The clothes must be designed to easily change the diaper.
