How are you at changing your babies clothes? Are you really good or still having trouble? Does baby get mad when you change his/her clothes?
I am terrible at anything that has to go over Jacob's head and he gets really pissed because it seems to always take me so long. I prefer to let him wear things that I don't have to put over his head but unfortunately most of the onsies that I have must go over his head.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I'm not very good at it yet. The funny story from our first week home with Aubrey was that DH didn't realize that you can pull the baby's clothes up behind her back while changing her diaper to keep it from getting dirty, so every time he changed her diaper, he undressed her. So I kept putting clothes on the baby, and then the next time DH would hand her to me she'd be in only a diaper again :-)
I am so bad at this! I've never actually hurt her, but I always feel like I'm going to because I have to wrestle her arms into place and put the opening over her head, etc. She's always very patient with me but has this look on her face like, "why me?" I should put a dollar in the therapy jar every time I put her in a onesie.
Sofia is not a fan of things going over her head...so if its a button up outfit that her head doesn't have to go through, then it's a pretty easy process. If it's a night gown or a dress...then it's a whole new story and she gets quite angry. She never really cries but she moans and kicks and turns red in the face from getting angry. She seems to need her diaper changed every hour during the day...so she is used to getting her legs dressed and undressed.
Hubby is good at dressing her too.

I'm good- I learned some tricks with DD that make it easier with DS! The best trick is to put your hand in the neck of the onesie from the top when you put it over the baby. That way you're not pulling it directly over their nose and ears.
I'm fine...she never fusses, unless I'm trying to change her clothes before her feeding (usually in the morning when I'm getting her out of her PJs). All her clothes have really stretchy neck openings so I never struggle with getting her head through. The only time I struggle is when I put on some of her dressed that have buttons in the back (who puts buttons on the back of anything made for an infant?!)
