My 10 mnth year old daughter is a very content child, wakes still quite frequently at night, but its improved from 2 hrs if lucky to often 3 1/2-4 1/2 hrs, so feel its going in the right direction. She is bright and cheerful most of the time, unless tired etc... however, she despises getting her clothes changed or even a diaper change for 90% of the time. She cries and cries like we are torturing her. I've tried toys, singing, raspberries on the stomach, funny faces, doing it while she stands and explores, doing it with Daddy's entertainment etc etc.... it is becoming stressful and an event in the day I dread, but she can't be left soaking or with dirty diaper or cold and it has to be done. I feel like we kind of have to restrain her a little which feels even worse. Often a really, really interesting object will distract or me nursing her. This morning I was tired and felt ever so tense, almost angry about it cos' I am not hurting her and she acts like I am. I am sure she felt my frustration - I then felt awful about that. She wailed so much, gets over after wards and I console and cuddle and try and make her laugh, but I feel tense, angry and very, very upset that she feels this way. Please, any, just any help or advice will be so appreciated. Thank YOU.
