small toys - only for nappy changes.
play games - blowing rasberries on tummy etc
Because my twins are almost 10mths, if they are dirty I clean the front up then they have had enough and want to move so I let them roll over and wipe the back. I find for me it works really well/

This is a great post as seen some older babies / toddlers give their mum grief in the public feeding areas at the shops.
DD is 3yr 8 months - DS is 6 months
I usually give my 8 month old son the baby powder to hold. Just make sure you have twisted the top closed, the other day I forgot to and let's just say there was powder everywhere!!! At least he smelled nice.
When having nakie time sometimes kayden will do a poo on the floor - it is such a mess to clean up i reckon worse than wearing a nappy because it sticks to EVERYTHING!!
to make it easier to clean them up, I suggest taking them and rinsing them under the laundry sink. Its the right height - just keep a towel next to the sink for a quick dry off! It really does work a treat, when you consider you gotta lay them on the change table with poo every where - its often not the easiest thing to avoid mess!
HAPPY NAKIE TIME!

sing songs, twinkle your fingers, hang mobiles above the change bench, and change the mobiles often so they don't get board, play music, dance around and make a fool of yourself, clap your hands, play the radio or sum funky music, make faces and your baby can copy you. place wall stickers on the wall for them to look at. my latest one is holding a teddy bear in my mouth. i have a "rubber dukie" which my bubba loves and play with while changing his nappy. they wriggle and worm around, makes it quite difficult doesn't it. i'd never give bottles of anything to hold tho...for eg powder as it this gets in a little babies throat....they can choke !
And I found that work great for us and we work as a team and also Jaye's happy when she is helping me doing things.

MY baby has a terrible nappy rash, have used different creams but it doesnt go away please help.
Have you tried Sudocrem? It has worked really well for us since bub was newborn...apply a liberal layer each nappy change & it was gone in no time at all. Hope this is helpful. smile
