The battle of the bottom…

Posted by: Sharmila Rajah Post(s) by this blogger

Not only is Ayanna calling the shots at the dinner table, she seems to be doing so at nappy changes too. There just doesn’t seem to be any way to get her to hold still for a nappy change.


Mummy’s intention – to cover it; she struggles to keep it bare. Although I ultimately end up victorious, it is quite a task to perform when you have to do it countless times a day.


We’ve had to move Ayanna from the changing table to lower, safer ground (the bed). Other times I’ve had to change her while she stands or approach her behind from the behind J. Creating a diversion sometimes works best – a toy usually does the trick.


I’m thinking of beginning to toilet-train her. Too soon? What are your thoughts?
