keeping my son's dipers on?

okay, my 19 month old little boy won't keep his clothing or dipers on while at home. have tried everything I can think of, swim trunks, pull ups, oneies, etc. and he takes it off every 10 to 15 minutes, even in bed. which means peeing and pooping in bed and on the floor all the time, so I am gong out of my mind! does anyone else have any ideas?
thanks a million!

  • Maybe it's his way telling you he's ready to use the big boy potty.

  • You can use duct tape around his diapers. Just wrap it around his waist.

  • Are you putting a onsie and then pants over the onsie? I know my kids wouldn't be able to undress that on their own at 18 months...

  • Does he has a older sibling around? I don't think there is a time set for toddlers to start potty training, it wouldn't hurt to try if he's not ready then you would know.

  • Yes, try potty training. IT's not about the age, it's about his capabilitites.
