  • OH MY! I would probably laugh at first but maybe it's just a phase. Have you tried changing her diaper in the middle of the night? Maybe she does'nt like being dirty.

  • one piece PJs on backwards! the zipper kind from gerber without the feet are the best. I stock pilled those from walmart LOL :) I have tons for my son and daughter (she's not to that stage yet but I know she will be)

  • BTW we tried that diaper change in the night idea... my son didn't go in the night...he took off the diaper then went poo in the morning.

  • Everyone of mine did it at least once. I literally duct taped the diaper closed. That was what eventually worked for us when we tried everything else. Most of mine started that around 13-14 months old. I also found the sooner I could get them out of the crib the less it happened. In fact none of them did it out of the crib. Good Luck..I know it's a mess.

  • grneyedgrandma- :) we did the duct tape too but over his PJs so he couldn't unzip them. hubby thought it was mean so I tried the backwards idea :)

  • This is very common. Duct tape on the dipaer tabs, one piece clothes like foot PJs and onsies. And remember, she doesn't know what germs are, she doesn't understand about messes. It's not gross and disgusting to her, it's new and interesting.

  • Maddie has doe it twice ad it's so gross! The only thing she can't take off herself is a onesie so I make sure she has one on when she naps, eve if we are constantly changig her clothes. It's the oly thig that has worked. I have also heard you can put the diapers on backwards so they can't get them off.

  • I've always thought that if they can take off their diapers, then they're ready for the fact, that's one of the things DD got for her first birthday...start making him/her go to the potty...
