Oh boy.. it's started...

DS1 has started taking his diapers off at night :/ And nothing we've done has stopped him so far... He can undress himself even if we put zip up pjs on him he can get them off (even if we use the little snap at the top that covers the top of the zipper he figures it out.) Backwards diapers don't stop him either (and they don't really fit very well that way anyway) 
Any other suggestions? :/ Really don't wanna be cleaning up pee and poop from his crib 2-3 times a day


ETA: Forgot to add, we cloth diaper, and use snaps cause he figured out months ago how to undo velcro!

Have you tried zipping them up backwards? I cut the feet off of the pj's when i had to do this with dd. She started this around 14 months.

Thank goodness he didn't play or paint with it! *knock on wood* I think I would cry if that were the case! lol.

I have heard of cutting the feet off of footie jammie's and putting them on backwards.








Good luck!

No I didn't think of putting them on backwards... I'd hate to ruin brand new pjs by cutting off the feet though :/ If I could find cheap ones it wouldn't bother me  as much (we only have like 2 pairs of the zip up ones to begin with...)  I guess worst case I'll have to suck it up and try it

Never had that problem with my oldest. Hopefully when the baby gets a little older she won't do it either. Hope you find a solution.

yep.  she gets it on her hands & then tries to wipe it off either on the walls or on the sheets.  she'll say, "mama, look, poop."  gag.
