  • Try to make it so she can't get to her diaper. Put her sleeper on backwards so she can't get to the fastener. Move her bed away from the wall so she can't get to them. Also, turn up the baby monitor (or get one) or just plan on running in after a few minutes & grab her before she can start making a mess. Rush her to the potty & tell her in no uncertain terms that poop is for the potty.

  • I would get sleepers and put her in them for her nap. Safety pin the zipper to the top so she can't get it open.

  • Backwards diapers, backwards clothes, pay closer attention to when she wakes, and it sounds like you might want to give potty training a go!

  • Are you talking about my son? LOL! My son is a master at unrobing and we had the hardest time with keeping clothes on him let alone keeping the diaper on him. I tried everything like onesies. He just kept outsmarting us. But, I finally outsmarted him when I bought some Big-boy undies. He can't get them off no mater what. It's so funny b/c pants/onsies/turtleneck sweaters are no problem, but the undies are fail proof and cheaper than diaper covers. good luck!

  • That's a major sign that she wants to be potty-trained and is ready to try. My son is 1 year old and he used to do that at 8 months old and we put him on the toliet. Now he's halfway through his training and he loves it. As long as your baby can sit up by herself or himself; you can introduce them to the toliet. My son is getting his first pair of underwear today; we'll see what he picks. Have you tried putting those plastic diaper covers on they are impossible to pull off because they stick. Get one size bigger than her size to get over the diaper? And if she does don't punish say let's try the toliet; you're such a big girl to get your diaper off; let's go to potty instead.
    They mostly do it just to show hey I can get it off and it's uncomfortable. Also the more shocked and suprise you act the more you do it; it's another way to get attention too.
