When did your kid learn to dress him/herself?

Posted by   + Show Post
My DD started putting forth a good effort around the time that she was two. She was very independent and would insist on doing it by herself.

My DS is 2 and 5 mos and is just beginning to assert his independence and try it himself. Moreso than getting dressed, he wants to undress. DD was the opposite and wanted to dress herself before she attempted to learn to undress herself.

I'm just looking for an average age range and of the child attempted to dress or undress him/herself first.

He started to but now is regressing again :-( ... I think it's because Im always in a rush in the morning that I've been dressing him to save time. Now he acts like he can't do if himself anymore. He's 5.

My youngest is 3. She has been able to dress and undress herself since about 12 months old. She walked at 8 months, so physically she has always been ahead.

Now at 3, she can zip up her own coat and can almost tie her shoes. Sometimes she gets it right, other times I have to retie them.

I think she learned so early because she loves clothes and shoes so much. She changes clothes/shoes/tights a kazillion times a day.
