OMGosh! Diaper changing has become such a fight for my 14 month old. Seriously if you heard his screams you would call CPS! I don't know what his deal is! I am thinking of letting him be naked over the summer while we are at home, and anytime I see him pee (or start grunting for poop) to sit him on his potty chair. I think he will get it eventually, puppies do and my boy is WAY smarter than a puppy!
We do part time EC with M and it is awesome. I think introducing the concept of the potty in a gentle, noncoercive way is great at any age, and of course there's nuthin wrong with nakey time lol. A great book is Diaper Free Baby by Christine Gross-Loh, it has tips for starting out at various ages including toddlers, just if you want to read some experiences, tips and what to expect, I think it is a very practical book. Good luck and hope it helps the changing time be more fun for Peter M is only now starting to be easier to change sometimes but she still usually hates it, especially the part of putting the new diaper on.

Yes! I completely agree with this. As long as you aren't trying to force him to use the potty, then introducing it to him, and seeing how he goes, is not going to do any harm
It's the age as well - Emersyn would scream bloody murder whenever I changed her diaper, and I am surprised my neighbours didn't come over to make sure everything was okay. It was EVERY. SINGLE. CHANGE... it did my head in... she's over it now, thank goodness
