  • turn it around so he can't figure out how to take it off

  • yea turning it around only works for a short period of time. I don't see anything wrong with duct tapping the diaper as long as it's not on the skin. My hubby's cousin had to do that lol

  • i have a 16 month old as well and she wears a lot of onesies that snap between the legs. there is no way for her to get to her diaper then! lol

  • but to answer the question i guess it wouldn't be really 'wrong' to duct tape a small piece where the diaper comes together. as long as it doesn't touch any skin it should be fine. (would obviously hurt to have to rip it off the skin)

  • I used to put the two piece out fits on mine and safety pin the two parts together. Mine could undo snaps!

  • I have had to do it, and I eventually got to the point where I would have to put it on backwards AND duct tape the flaps! It was so frustrating!

  • duct tape away just make sure its not on the skin or its not to tight. GL

  • Not wrong. Duct tape is your friend.

  • I've done it in a pinch; 10PM and no diapers in the house and tommorow is payday, and guess who tore the last nighttime diaper in the house. I also agree that it shouldn't touch the skin. Good luck.

  • I think it is okay, too. We went through it, too. How about zip up sleepers put on backwards. You can cut the arms and legs off if it is too warm. We had to do that with our little naked booger. Good luck. It will pass.
