My daughter is 11 months old and fusses the moment I lay her down for a diaper change.

It's probably a phase, but one that will come and go for the next couple of years (or longer). At 11 months we started to teach body parts during diaper changes...tummy, head, hand etc. Also, we'd play music and sing songs. Basically it became the mommy/daddy entertainment show. It really helped to have other distractions around like a special toy or soft book too.

we've gone thru a few of those phases actually. most short-lived, altho at 30 months, our daughter has totally sworn off her cloth....makes me sad, I hate buying paper, but when she literally won't let us put them on her, nothing we can do. and circumstances aren't allowing us to do much potty training (I hate stress). But I haven't heard of what my DD is doing as happening to a lot of kiddos, so I think you're pretty safe there. But at 11 months, just a phase, try to make it quick and be done.
