So, besides the bed issues, we are having major issues with Gabriel and diaper changes. He's not a big fan of having his diaper changed - takes away from playtime, I guess - and lately he has started to kick us hard when we try to change him. I've been kicked in the legs, arms, stomach, chest (OUCH), and Grandpa almost got kicked in the face a few days ago.
Telling him in a firm voice to stop doesn't work; he smiles or laughs at us and kicks harder. Backing off for a second and saying nothing works only until I resume changing him, at which point he starts kicking again.
The only two things that usually make him stop are screaming at the top of our lungs or spanking his bare butt (which I obviously don't want to do if he's pooped).
Help - we are so furious with him. What can we do to make him stop kicking us? He does not kick or hit any other time; just during diaper changes.
