When did you start "naked time"?

My DD is 4 months old and I put her on a towel and let her be naked but I'm not sure when that is really started and how much do you do it a day? I just feel bad with her being in a diaper all the time.

  • We started around 5 months with DS, only because we didn't think about it sooner. He had a miserable diaper rash, and has been enjoying naked time ever since :) With our next one, we'll probably start naked time at birth!

    I got those waterproof sheets and just laid them on the floor - they're basically fleecey on one side, plastic on the other, and machine washable.

    We're potty training now, so he spends almost all his time at home with no pants on!

  • I usually did it when getting dressed (if we had the time) and after bath time for a good 30 mins more if you have time just be careful of pp

  • I only did "semi-naked" time with my boys when they were being potty trained--they just wore a long t-shirt.

  • From the day I brought him home from the hospital. I remember when he was about a year old and had horrible diaper rash. I laid old blankets and sheets on the couch and laid him on there naked for a nap. I had the ceiling fan going and he had the most amazed look on his face. The fan must have felt really good on him. He had a great big smile on his face.

  • oh you mean naked time for the KIDS oh okay LOL I was about to say if it's naked time for me, about an hour ago haha.

    seriously tho. i wasn't aware there was a "right" time to start naked time. we kinda have a "clothing optional" household.

  • we did naked time today, my son loves it, he seems much happier without wearing a scratchy diaper, I let him be naked everyday or every other day, he's 18 months, and somtimes he just won't let my put the diaper, so i let him run around naked for ahwile.
