  • Do you put her to bed in JUST a diaper? Maybe you should try clothes if your not, like a onesie or pj pants or shorts????

  • Put her in a sleeper & put it on backwards so she can't get into it. Even in this hot weather, they make those light cotton sleepers. Or put her in a onesie that snaps at the bottom. I've even heard a few moms say they put duck tape over the diaper fasteners & it works wonders.

  • We used duct tape as well, I know a lot of people have.

  • I feel your pain. I have 2 year old twin boys who refuse to keep their diapers on at naps and bedtime. I've tried everything that's been mentioned here, plus some. The only way that I've found to keep their diapers on is duct tape, but it has to be wrapped around their diapers at least twice and the end at the back of their diapers. Sometimes they can still get out of it, but the duct tape has slowed them down.
