Is there a way to break her from this?

I know most kids go through a phase of stripping off their clothes, etc. Recently my 17 month old daughter, Cambria, has started to take off her pants and diaper in the morning and pee in her crib before she lets us know she's up. It's such a hassle to get her up, bathe her, change her sheets and mattress cover every morning. Is there something I can do to help prevent this or a method I can use to teach her not to do this?

  • time when she gets up and set your alarm for 30 mins prior then wake her up and set her on the potty...and start using pullups.

    or on the lighter side use electrical tape and put it around her whole diaper to keep it on use only electrical tape because it wont stick to skin and use one piece jammys she cant get out of..good luck

  • Some ideas:
    One piece PJs or ones where the tops and bottoms snap together.
    Diaper on backwards.
    Duct tape over the diaper tabs. Don't laugh! Two of my baby books suggest it!

  • How about teaching her to use the toilet?

    Forget the pullups, go straight to panties.

  • do you have a monitor in her room?
    if she's awake without you knowing it then it might be a good idea to start using a monitor again, assuming you don't already have one.

  • id say set your alarm liek 15-20 minutes before she gets up. and set her on the potty. once you can get her to go on the potty. then it should be easy from there. You can also try and put a trainning potty in her room and that way she can go in that but if she plays in it is another thing.
