He WONT keep the diaper on!!!

I am about to resort to duck tape ladies! He has been taking it off for about a week BUT if I put pants on him he left it alone. Well tonight he reached in his pants and pulled it apart so it was hanging out the front!! He is 19 months old and hasn't been in onesies in a VERY long time and I have none on hand. Is that my only solution? Do y'all have any others??

  • Put the diaper on backwards. He won't be able to pull the sticky tabs off and then the diaper.

  • AWESOME!! Although I should add that he doesnt really open the tabs, he just hooks his thumbs in the diaper and pushes down till it comes apart. I am going to try that tho because maybe he isnt strong enough to pull against it if its in the back :)

  • both my kids have done this my daughter doesnt anymore she is now potty trained but my son who is 2 does this all the time we tried the backwards thing and he would still take it off. so we have to put duck tape on his diaper evernight.

  • Pushing a diaper down isn't even ALMOST a sign of potty training, Anon 10:29.

  • I've taped the tabs during my DD's phase. It was the only thing that worked for me. GL!

  • I use cloth diapers so when DS started this, I switched all of my dipes to snaps instead of velcro. Don't know if that helps but it worked for us. :)
