  • duct tape over the diaper tabs.
    Or consider introducing the potty and letting him run naked through the house. This depends on if you think he is ready to learn the complex task of using the potty and if you are willing to clean up the occasional puddle of pee.

  • Paut it on backwards. I know it sounds funny, but it has always worked for me! Try it.

  • My children are a little bit older the youngest is 6, but with my grandson who is 2 as long as he has on pants he doesn't mess with his diaper. My older boys I had to keep onesies on them and pants. I think it is a boy Hope that helps alittle

  • I cannot let my daughter go without pants on...she would rip that diaper off in a minute. She puts up a fight during each diaper change and screams when I put her pants back on.

  • We used tape when our oldest was not quite ready for potty training but wouldn't keep her diaper on, I finally put tape around her diaper, over the tabs. It worked wonders. It kept her bed dry in between not potty trained and potty trained time.

  • You need some duct tape or don't let him run around without pants on. My daughter was the same way. Or you could get pull ups or easy ups. My daughter doesn't take those off

  • mine does the same thing i think she just dont want the diaper on anymore because she is ready to potty train cause she only takes if off if its dirty and all so i got her a potty seat from walmart its folds up and you can take it along with you instead of having a seat sitting in the bathroom and having to clean it out i think it was only 10 dollars and it just fits right in the bag when we leave she loves it as well she will take her diaper off and run in there and put it on the toilet and she can also take it off and fold it back up and put it away for next time

  • that is so funny. I do the duct tape too. Shes figured out how to take pants off, so the tape was the last resort. Ive tried to potty train her, but she thinks the toilet is gonna eat her or something. Time for a little potty chair.
