Lots of tiny babies don't like being dressed and undressed.They do soon get used to it and you can make little games,sing little songs.So young,Hollie probably won't be impressed yet but can soon be distracted by these things.All you can do is keep changing an dressing as quick and fuss free as possible and be ready with the hugs as soon as it's all over.If shes getting really upset,maybe just pick her up,calm her down a bit and finish dressing her on your lap.My eldest used to hold his breath,of course I panicked,but it really was only a couple of seconds ,in between cries,and it didn't go on very long.If you are worried though speak to your health visitor.
My youngest hated being dressed,bathed ,changed,and there was a particular little song we sung to him which now ,at 20 months, he'll sing back to me if he wants me to sing t and he'll sing along,but when he was tiny stopped him crying almost instantly.

Alice used to freak out. getting undressed, in the bath, getting dressed after.
try not to let it phase you basically. You can try all the smiles, talking, singing distraction. but she will grow out of it. c'mon, all warm and snuggly in clothes and the next second being pulled about and undressed. no fun! x
