Most little ones go through stages when they resist diaper changes. Unless you have the rare child who is uncomfortable in wet diapers, then he has no incentive to want a diaper change. By 11 months old, your child is old enough to want to be more in charge of his body and his time. He doesn't want an adult to swoop in and pick him up and disrobe him when he's busy with something.
Often, simply slowing down and connecting changes everything. Sometimes, giving the child control is the key to avoiding a power struggle. Often, not interrupting their play solves the problem by meeting their needs as well as yours. And sometimes you will probably find yourself resorting to distraction. So, here's a list of ideas to try, most of which will work sometimes, or for a while. You may find some good combinations that work for you. It is suggested that you print this list and add to it as you discover more solutions that work for you and your child.

How do you get your baby to go to sleep and sleep through the night?
She may accomplish that milestone on her own, soon. Or she may need a little help from you to learn how to put herself to sleep. All humans have sleep cycles that take us into slightly wakened states during the night, and we all need to learn the skill of falling back into a deep sleep.
