You get very quick the more you practice. We use toys or games like 'this little pigy' to distract

Wow, there are some great ideas here, some really creative! Its's good to think that it might just be a quick phase anyway. I will make sure I have some distractions to hand and was it until the weekend when my husband is home and the babies are in a good mood before messing around getting the fit right. Once I've got that then I guess it should be at least no worse than getting a disposable on.

If all else fails I might try and find one of those changing mats with harness, but it looks like nobody has stock at the moment.

Thanks again, and GilbertandMartha your hat sounds genius!

Distraction & pin down with leg move!

That's what's worked for us.

James was a right wriggler - Eleanor is much more agreeable and lies down beautifully!

Aubrey is a nightmare, especially if he is tired, he will twist himself all the way over and if he is poorly I literally end up with him dangling by his legs while I try to change him. I normally change him standing up now, much less stressful.
