Ben is three weeks old and hates having his diaper changed. When will it stop being such an ordeal for him?

Hi Christy, my 6 week old daughter doesn't like having her diaper changed as well. I have found that when she is full, and I change her diaper, she is fine, and doesn't cry. Also, I run the baby wipes under warm water before I wipe her with them because they are too cold on her bum and hates it, I mean who wouldn't! Hope this helps!

I do what maria does, my daughter is fine but after sleeping all nite as bad as it sounds i give her a bottle first then change and dress her in the morning, she is more civilised with a full tummy and generally is excellent with it, when she was waking in the nite time i would have to do it when she woke and she was usually not too bad.

I don't use wipes unless I'm out. Cotton woll in warm water is what I've always used untill they start having stiff poos. Unless he is hungry he is ok with nappy changes.

my son use to hate it and cry bloody murder when he got his diaper changed, change of clothes, and bath time. He stopped crying during his diaper and clothe change at about 6 weeks. Bath time took longer I got him a new tub and that helped......from the first night in his new tub he stopped crying.

My daughter used to cry when her diaper was changed, but she stopped at about five or six weeks. I think some of it was the temperature of the wipes, and the fact that she didn't like being uncovered.

My daughter is 3 months now and loves getting her diaper changed. Sometimes it's the only way she will calm down. When they get a little older it's not so traumatizing.

I think it might be the cold wipes. We bought a wipe warmer at a secondhand store, but I am not sure how to use it since it had no instructions. Ben likes baths, especially if I keep dripping warm water all over him. He hates getting toweled off and dressed afterwards though.

Does he get upset every time? Or is it just when changed with a full tummy? Sometimes when they are in that position and then you lift their little legs it sends some of their milk/formula back up and aggrevates reflux problems.

Christy how does your wipe warmer looks like I have one that I thought it was tricky at first but its very easy to use, maybe we have the same one.

For my baby shower I got a wiper warmer it's great! Each wipe is always warm! Recently my son has been a little difficult when he gets dressed I just give him a toy to try to distract him,he's 5 month's old, good luck.
