In brief: Likes Being naked

It is important to make sure the diaper is not too tight or rubbing the inner thighs or along the hips.
Some babies really do not like being clothed and others love it. . If the diapers are not too tight, and no rash issues, and baby quits crying after a little bit, it is most likely (s)he doesn't like being in diapers and will adjust with time.

In brief: Too Tight

The most likely cause would be if the diaper is too tight.
Make sure the diaper is closed enough to not leak. Repositioning the tabs to a slightly looser position should take care of the problem.
