My 20 month old has never been completely agreeable to diaper changes, but we used to be able to get through them relatively peacefully. Over the past week, they've become nearly impossible. I've tried giving him special things to play with, letting him hold the diaper cream, letting him choose the diaper, asking him to come to me when he's ready, giving warning that we'll count to 10 and then it will be diaper time, etc. Nothing works. He screams and runs and buries his face in the carpet and gets stiff. He does not want his clothes changed either. He's still wearing his pajama top today, b/c we just could not get it off of him to change him.
I've told him that if he'd like to start using the potty, I'm happy to help him with that, but I think he's a little young for it. Should I be encouraging this more strongly to keep the peace?
