Let’s be real, toddlers rule the roost when it comes to most areas of life.
For many parents, nappy changes can often require pulling out all the stops. From singing, dancing, distractions or downright bribery — there's probably not a lot you wouldn’t do to get through a nappy change stress-free (right?!).
Choose the answer that's the closest match to change time with your little one to discover just what kind of change time personality is beneath the nappy.
1. The best nappy change position for your toddler is:
- Most positions — after a treat, a story and a song and dance.
- Standing, rolling, you name it – they’ll be on the move.
- It changes, but two pairs of hands are often needed.
- Lying down
2. Your toddler's feelings about change time would be best described as:
- It's an exciting mystery for all involved.
- Change time is almost definitely their favourite time of the day.
- An opportunity to test boundaries and pick up some new lingo.
- It's the perfect time to lean into being a budding nudist, right?
3. You’re rushing out the door and tell your toddler it’s nappy change time. What happens next?
- Every trick, distraction and bargaining chip is on the table.
- Tag, you're it! Now's the perfect time for some playtime, no?
- It's over so quickly you're left wondering who's rushing who.
- Those plans might as well have cancelled themselves…
4. The most common time for your toddler to do 'their business' is:
- Conveniently after a meal or before a bath.
- As soon as you’re in the car and about to head out.
- The moment the nappy is off.
- Anytime — and they'll usually talk through the process.
5. Finally, if all else fails, the following tricks usually work for your toddler at nappy change time:
- Busting out a countdown so they know a change is coming. Literally.
- Talking through what you're doing so your little one knows what you're doing next.
- No tricks needed as of yet — they're normally pretty compliant.
- Changing them on-the-go is the only way.
