My son's two and for some reason he keeps taking off his own diaper. I've tried putting him in pants and then snapping a onesie OVER them.. and even that doesn't work. If I turn my back for a single minute, he has his diaper off. And what's worse is, he usually does it when he poops so I'm just waiting for the day when he takes off a diaper and gets poop all over my white couch or my white floor.
Anybody else have this problem before? Any advice? I've tried almost everything I can think of. Even spanking him (which I hate doing) doesn't work. Time-out doesn't help.. I'm just running out of ideas.
Anyway- thanks for listenign  :D

oh, mommy--spanking?  anyways, a good idea is to overdress him.  you were on the right track.  but--maybe three pairs of pants--and make the last pair a pair of bib overalls.  (i forget what the other name is for them.  brain fart in progress.)

My daughter would do this at night...we started putting her sleepers on inside out so she couldn't reach the tab to unzip it.  Not sure what to do for during the day scenarios...I don't think an inside out onesie would make a huge difference.

Maybe he is ready for potty training? Try putting underware on him and teaching him to potty?

Sounds like he is ready to be potty trained. When my daughter started taking off hers Thats when we introduced her to the potty and she just took to it right away!

yes, we went through this with my granddaughter, one day, while shopping at WalMart, I let her choose some "big girl panties". She chose the princess package. When we got home, i reminded her these were for big girls, like mommy & Nana, And her friend, Kerry, that lived next door. "we don't pee or poop our pretty panties, so you won't either, right? she agreed. After she was bathed, ready to try on her new panties, we decided to give 'em a test ride, stayed in the house, just acting normal. She was 100% potty proof that day! she would not dirty those new panties "Nana let me get." Sometimes, mommy needs a back-up unit, or helper. moms unite!!!!

My daughter is 2 and used to do this all the time. I had to resort to putting her diaper on backwards. It helped for a long while. She has stopped doing it but it was such a headache while she was doing it.

I've already tried potty training him. He'll use his "big boy potty" once in a while, but I obviously can't tell when he has to pee- I need to rely on him to tell me... which he doesn't do.
Thanks to everyone so much for the help. I'll start trying your ideas as soon as I get the chance :D

my youngest went through this phase for a while especially after naptime when she was poopie, she was only 18mos and not ready to potty yet we had to resort to applying a "belt" of duct tape with every new diaper--keeps your walls, bed clothes and couches clean-- we even had to overlap the tape in the back so she couldn't remove it!!!!
