Dressing babies without getting red in the face tips

As babies get older they learn how to roll and wiggle, making it a fun struggle to get those buttons snapped or zipped. Just breathe, let them wiggle and talk to your baby so they are looking at you, it helps for them to stay calm when you are too. My daughter likes to stretch her legs out making it hard to get her onesie snapped up, I just sing the alphabet song giver a tickle on the ribs so she loosens up and snap the buttons quickly. It's also a challenge putting the diaper on when she's rolling over, I got to reset her to the position and again sing and talk to her so she looks at me. When she's cranky and starting to cry the "itsy bitsy spider" song with hand gestures really does the trick to get her smiling again.

    My daughter is almost too long for the changing table. I've been using our bed lately to change her too.

    My babe likes getting onesies on but the rest is frustrating for her because I think she's thinking "okay your done, lets go play now" lol.

      I've been dressing nina from day 1, in the hopes that she would get used to being dressed and not put up such a fuss. Sometimes she fights back against diapers, but that's usually when she's recently had a bath and wants to run naked lol. For shirts, I've always said "Arm!" or "Can I have your arm?" for each sleeve, and "Legs!" when putting pants or a skirt on. She acts like it's fun to get dressed, so I've never had a problem with it yet
