    This one works for me. DFs actually joke about it because they've witnessed it many times.
    One other tidbit, DS2 was a chronic ear infection guy, and the fits were much worse before he got his tubes. So, possibly, there was a connection with the pain there. He still does it but not to the insane degree.

    Since DD loves books I usually give her a little board book to hold onto and look at while I change her diaper. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't, it really just turns into a mini-wrestling match and trying to change the diaper as quickly as possible.

    Yup. It's like diapering and clothing a high strung octopus. I tell DD2 I'm going to give her the people's elbow (The Rock back in his WWE days).

I'm amazed.

    I use a toy or object my DD is interested in. She stops climbing and crawling away if I hand her something she likes.

    At almost 2 DD's still throwing a fit when I try to change diapers. Sometimes I'm successful at re-directing her attention to a different object and she keeps quite for a few moment. But in her case, she has eczema so I have to apply layers of lotion at every diaper change. Its not quick as just changing the diaper.

    LOL, thanks for all of your suggestions. Today I tried some toys, including the mother of all toys--my cell phone. Things went a lot smoother today. Thanks!

    Yeah, usually the cell phone holds DDs attention the longest but ofcourse she does throw it when she's bored. Mine doesn't work as it should anymore.
