  • put his pants on backwards and zip up pajama's on backwards... its completely normal, and obviously in public he can't wear backwards clothes... but seriously at home button/zip his pants in the back he won't be able to get them off... same with pj's buy the footie zip up ones and put them on backwards. Problem solved :)

  • I use to zip footed pj's on backwards....worked for a while...then I had to start pinning them with a safety pin.

    I have heard of moms using duck tape on the diaper...never did that though.

    my dd got soooo bad and she was a little was actually able to slip out of the footed pj's with them PINNED!!! Crazy right!

    So my mom made her a was stiff no stretch...and it zipped up the a worked until she was outta the phase.

  • I never had this problem although my sister did with her twin two year old boys. She just kept them in pants and a onesie and kept a close eye on them. I dont know what else to tell you. Good luck

  • Im going to try backwards clothes.. my son can sneak out of his clothes.. makes him mad but he can. hes a goof.. he does it during nap time or at bedtime.. i make sure hes clean when he goes to sleep and when he wakes up its a mess.. he gets so many baths now

  • My son went through it too, it was smeared on his bedroom walls one time... beyond gross... that's when someone told me the backwards clothes thing, and it worked long enough to get him outta the phase. Glad I could pass along the advice :) GL

  • MY DS started doing this at daycare but thank GOD not with a #2 diaper. I make sure the tapes overlap. He can't ge tit off then. Heck I have a hard time getting it off when the tapes overlap.
