9.5 mo DD has always hated getting dressed (specifically, getting a shirt pulled over her head and arms pushed through sleeves), and squirms/screeches/crawls away through diaper changes. Emotions run especially high after her nightly bath, and as soon as I start dressing her, she claws at my breasts to nurse. I would nurse her through it if I could, but my breasts sag and are heavy. It just doesn't work. I have not yet mastered the art of diapering a moving or standing child, and it's kind of hard getting the right fit like that with her chubby little mama milk thighs. :P I try to distract her with a novelty item, but it isn't a guarantee and doesn't last long. I feel like I'm trying to handle a greased pig. Much of the time, I end up 'forcing' the dress change and diapering on her because I feel like if we can just get it over and done with as quickly as possible, we can move on. The flip side of the coin is I feel like I am not respecting her boundaries when I do this. If she can go diaper free, I let her to avoid the drama; and if the weather is amiable, I let her go naked. But it often HAS to be done.
I so dread this, and am looking for commiserating and creative/insightful tips.
