Play it where it lies.
Now that the boy is eight and a half months old, him holding still for a diaper change just isn't happening anymore. After weeks of fighting to keep him on his back long enough to get the job done, I've given up on the changing table and have moved to floor for everybody's safety. While there are more opportunities for him him to escape on the floor, the potential for injury (his and mine) is less. So now that he has more room to thrash about I've have decided that in order to get the job done with minimal screaming (again, his and mine) I am going to have to change him in whatever position he is in when it's time. Yesterday we did it while he was on his stomach with his head and arms under the crib. This morning we were under dining room table and he was standing up against the pedestal. He actually finds it quite amusing so I guess we'll just keep changing him where ever we happen to be when he's wet. Tonight we are supposed to go out for dinner. This will be very interesting.
