I have seen many posts about toddlers refusing diaper changes. One of my DSs (23 months) refuses diaper changes every morning, and everytime he poops. I usually try to wait a little while, and especially if he's poopy, he eventually asks me to change it. But sometimes I sort of make him do it. Like, I tell him that he needs a new diaper and hold him and comfort him with reassuring words while changing him on my lap, and tell him he will be more comfortable, won't get wet clothes etc, if he gets a new diaper. Is this wrong? Is it like overpowering him to do this? Am I teaching him that might is right?
