In brief: 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!

In brief: Don't let go.

If you are changing the baby on a diaper table you have to make sure that the child does not wiggle off the edge.
If you can distract the child with some music or noise machines this might help.
