My son is almost 2 years old now and he loves to take off his clothes especially at night. He will toss off his diaper and sometimes leave a mess for me in the morning, YUK!! He also likes to strip during the day. It's very embarassing when I have friends over and here comes my son, all naked smiling at us. What can I do to keep him dressed and stop the nighttime diaper toss?
Well, I hear your frustration! I went through this phase too with my little one. I refused to try the duct tape and pinning - I just did not like those ideas. I tried to put the jammies on backwards but thought the neck was too constricting. So. the best solution I found through a suggestion from another forum is the Little Keeper Sleeper. It's just like a regular sleeper, but my daughter could absolutely not get out of it. Look at the website - www.littlekeepersleeper.com. It is so worth the money to not have to clean up the crib every day!
Our daughter did the same thing at 18 months. The phase lasted for some time. Try http://mookimoo.com. They have a great selection of sleepwear that specifically addresses this frustrating phase of development. Best of all, the design makes it easier to change a toddler. They work great.
Try these pajamas that toddlers can't take off! They are Escapeejays, escape-proof pajamas. www.escapeejays.com
I read this means they're reading to be introduced to potty training.
I have used the Little Keeper Sleeper for almost a year now. I can honestly say their backwards zippered sleeper is the only one that truly works. When they were out of stock, I tried another one, and my child got out of it with no problem. I don't know how this company does it, but don't waste your time or money with anything else. These sleepers are truly a sanity saver. I have told all my friends about this amazing product and how much it has helped me. I purchased them from their website: www.littlekeepersleeper.com
I thought this post would be the answer to my problems as well. The zippers in the back don't help because I have twins and they will undo each other!!!! Quick little back story - I have 4 older children (no other twins) and none of them ever did this. I am desperate for a solution. I have started potty training, without much success, but that doesn't solve the problem of the peeing and pooping on the floor during naptime and bedtime! Does anyone else have any ideas?
This is a completely normal and natural behavior for toddlers. It's not harming them any, but if it's irritating YOU, you can certainly try the same timeouts and incentives (cool superman pajamas) as for anything else. Certainly nobody wants to sleep in a soiled diaper. To minimize that part, you should probably start potty training by trying to get him to go before bedtime.
