This week’s question is from a couple who recently adopted a young baby. This is what they wrote,
We recently adopted a 9 month old baby girl from Ethiopia. Ever since we’ve had her, it was been a struggle to do diaper changes. She screams every time. It’s so bad that she starts fussing as soon as she see’s us grab a diaper. We have tried things such as putting her in front of the TV while changing, giving her a toy, talking to her, but nothing seems to distract her enough to keep her from screaming. We’ve had 2 children from birth and have not ever experienced anything like this. Do you have any recommendations?
Okay, all of you parents out there – what are your thoughts? What are your suggestions? Any encouraging words for them? Please take a moment to leave a comment to support and encourage them.
I am going to Spokane today and will be without my computer, but I’ll check in as often as I can to approve your comments. If they don’t show up for awhile, know that I am on the road or without internet access.
Ladybug and Sunshine are both getting their braces off this morning. Sunshine’s were her first phase of treatment, so braces will come around again. Ladybug should be all done. They are both quite excited.
