I think preventing diaper rash is more important than waiting till a baby can learn to talk …. people need to stop trying to create unnecessary drama in the world shoot we can hardly get some parents to remember to take their children out of car seats in the summer let’s just start there first. I hate when my baby gets a diaper rash and I’m rushing to find best diaper rash cream to sooth my babys bum.
Mom it just comes naturally to talk my kids through whatever I’m doing. I always thought of it as part of teaching them how to talk and understand what I’m doing and why it’s necessary. It’s just normal every day life for us. It’s sad that this doesn’t come naturally to some parents.
When I tell him honey I am going to change your diaper or clean your face or nose ect.. He lets me more easily and more often and with less fuss! I was beyond amazed! He would scream bloody murder when I cleaned his nose.. Now he will stop and pause for about 10 seconds to let me!
While they’re babies, I walk around and just say whatever I’m doing. “Mommy’s making coffee, this is mommy’s blue cup, we are walking into the living room” not necessarily that deliberate every time, but it helps them associate the action with the words
If a child is in diapers they are too young to have the mental capacity to understand consent in the first place. If they can understand your question and answer with understand then they probably need to be potty trained, or working in that direction
