My little ratbag Cody has been doing the same recently. It's fine for his dad as he just plants his big hand on his tummy and holds him there. Where as I have to sing and and act like a manic so he focuses on my face and stay's on his back.( I also enjoy acting the clown for him). Goodness know's what my neighbours think but it makes thing's alot easier.

I'm sorry, but there is no quick fix for your problem, however, rest assured, it doesn't last forever!! At around 6-8 months, babies discover a new found freedom.....crawling!!! Even before they can crawl, they discover ways of moving/rolling and they just want to keep moving. They learn at an early age, that laying down on the change table means keeping still to get dressed/changed etc, and once a little older, they don't want to keep still anymore, they just want to move!!! Most babies grow out of it once they are walking, but in the meantime, it is just a struggle of trying to dress them, and acting like clowns to try to keep them entertained while changing/dressing takes place. I know how you feel. I have a 10 month old doing the same thing at the moment. Take care.

It certainly makes for trying times when they just won't lay still!!
I find and found that giving Ella either her dummy or a baby wipe to play with kept her occupied until she was dressed.

I had pretty much the same question posted, anyway i received some great advise !
Give the baby some sticky tape in their hands and they will be transfixed for sometime trying to remove it from their hands...its cute ! it also works.
Pls give it a go and let us all know how it goes!
