  • take her shopping and let her pick some clothes she likes...she will be more likely to wear them

  • Dude, I did that until I was like 4. Shrug. I think it just feels nice to be naked so they do it. Maybe stop the battle completely at home and just let her be nakey, but as soon as you get to the car (bring the clothes) explain that it's not safe or comfy to get in the carseat without clothes, so let's put on clothes and take them back off when we get home.

  • My DS,2, likes to run around with a t-shirt and no bottoms and now thanks to my DH he tells me, "Mommy, I Porky Piggy!"
