How do I prevent my son from ......

How do I prevent my son from putting his hands down his diaper and smearing poop everywhere. For example if he pooped while he was napping, when he wakes up instead of letting me know he's awake he decides to play with his poop. It's disgusting and I've told him that it's a no-no, but he's 2 and still doesn't understand. Has anyone had this problem and what did you do?

  • I know this is extreme, but maybe put him into footie pjs when he takes naps too so that he cannot get into his diaper. And then get him pudding so he can finger paint with that. I don't remember my son ever having this problem and my daughter is still pretty young.
