Is it because the wipes are cold?

My son makes 3 weeks on Thursday and sometimes he does the same thing. I've learned it's usually because he's cold. I try to keep him covered with a blanket as much as I can while still being able to change his diaper. Also if you have a pacifier it comes in handy while he's being changed. With my son, I have to change the dressing on his circumcision and the antibiotic ointment is cold and it bothers him.

My son is still doing that and he is 7 weeks old. My doctor just said it's because he likes to be all snug and warm and then we rip their pants off haha

I think you should try napies to your baby during whole day....and for night diaper is good....becoz... small babies have sensitive skin and if we wear our baby whole day daiper....so it may also effect on skin...

Thanks ladies and sometimes before I even touch him with the wipe he already crying. Lol poor babies I hope it stop soon. He' got cicumcised Monday so it's almost healed that I stop putting ointment on it yesterday. So now I can go pretty quick on changing him.

My son just made a week yesterday and he screams his head off whenever I change his diaper. I noticed it began after he was circumcised . It's calmed down in the last few days though. I started warming the wipes before I change his diaper and its helped as well.

Every newborn I know does that. Its because they are warm and don't like being cold. It gets better but know its normal.
