Almost anything!: Keep one or two small special toys on the changing table. Hand them to your baby while you change diapers. Hanging a poster or picture above the changing table my help too. Keep your baby's hands busy and eyes occupied for the quickest diaper changes with the least amount of struggling!
A member asked:

Why does my baby have urate crystals in her diaper?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

OK unless dehydrated: These crystals are a combination of elements that are normally in the urine, calcium and urate, causing a red/orange stain/crystal formation in the diaper. These are normal and should resolve on their own. If there is any ongoing feeding problem with your baby or if she is not making several wet diapers a day, see her pediatrician.

Speed change!: You want to be fast and prepared, have everything within arms reach, when you are changing a squirmer! you may need to change the baby on the floor, instead of a table, to minimize the chance of falls. Also, keep the baby distracted and his/her hands busy with a special toy while you sneak the clean diaper on!

Contact allergy: Yes they can. Baby's skin is very thin and sensitive. Sometimes the scent or certain chemicals in a particular brand of diaper could be causing the reaction. U want to consult ur doctor or an allergist. Of course it can always be a diaper rash.
