  • How old is he? Maybe he's tired of diapers and ready to potty train

  • As in he's doing it, or you dont' want him to? My kids have never done that.

  • My kids have never done that. Well, one did one time and screamed when he smelled it! Lol! Yes, some kids will, but not all.

  • We just wore onesies. It took care of that happening...

  • My daughter just turned one and this hasn't been an issue at all with her- I don't think all kids do it, or at least most don't do it frequently, but I know it happens. What I have heard of to help is putting a onesie on so baby can't just reach into the diaper. I have also hear of putting the diaper itself on backward so that tabs are in the back, or putting pajamas on the baby backwards at night- like the zip-up pj's with feet- so that baby can't unzip themselves and get into the diaper. I hope that helps if you do encounter this problem.

  • Not all kids will do this but it can happen. My oldest didn't but my youngest has gotten her diaper of twice thank god only once was it Dirty. I agree with MaryMW about the diaper or pj's on backwards or just put bloomers on him. He will learn to take the diaper off at some point. They all do. You are mostly only going to have to worry about this at night and nap time and if you keep something covering the diaper then you shouldn't have a problem.
