Does anyone else's 3 year old take their clothes off to go #2?

My daughter always gets naked to go #2. My hubby said he used to do this also when he was little but I have never heard of this before and I myself never did this when I was little. I am just curious if anyone else's child does this.

  • My son was doing that. He just turned 4. Now he still takes his pants and undies off but luckily now keeps his socks and shirt on. I think its just a little kid thing.

  • My 3 year old strips from the waist down...but leaves his shirts on.

    My (almost) 5 year old used to do that...it took me forever to convince him he didn't need to take his pants off to pee even! lol (this was as he was standing to pee, too! LOL)

  • Yes YEs Yes!!! I thought my son was just a little silly willy for doing this but he does. He is 31/2 and only when he poops. He will start out clothed and then he has no pants or undies when i ask him what happened to your clothes? He says" they fell off " hahaha..at least now i know i am not alone!
