My son is always taking off his pants and socks and running around the house with only a shirt and diaper. I have not figured out how to get him to leave his clothes on. It is winter here and much too cold for this type of independence. Is this normal? Does anyone have any ideas?

So normal!!  My daughter loves to take everything off, including her diaper, and just run around naked!  I had to resort to duct taping her diaper on and safety pinning her blanket sleepers on at night!  We just keep the house a little warmer!  I think she does it just because she can...and she's sooo proud of herself!! :)

My son has been taking his pants AND diaper off. The other night he woke up at 1am(which he never does) crying, so I let him cry for a minute, thinking he would go back to sleep, but after 10 minutes I went in there. He was standing in his crib stark naked! He had taken off his PJs(the 1 piece pjs that button at the top and zip up the front!) and his diaper and he was crying b/c he was shivering, he was so cold! I have no idea how long he had been naked, but my husband had checked on him at about 10pm and he was fine, bundled under the covers!

I laughed when I saw this! I am so glad we are not alone. My daughter recently started doing this too! I guess its just a new skill and some independence!

My little girl constantly takes the socks off, repeatedly and non stop - she even says it to herself as she is doing it: " take sockies off "... plays in my ears all day long.

I found it's harder for her to achieve the goal if she has shoes on that make it dificult, so I put the soft sole Robeez on her feet to wear at home and that makes her resign. I also thought that maybe overalls( as the are more built up so to speak) would be more difficult for your little man to get out off.

I bought my daughter a baby doll with changing clothes. Ithink the kids just want to do what mommy and daddy do, So, changing the baby's clothes kept her hands busy and she was imitating us. - Hope that helps.

it is very normal lol my little girl is forever taking off all her clothes till she is butt naked i think she is trying to tell us she is ready for potty training,we have had to resort to putting a sleepsuit on backwards at night to stop her from taking her nappy (diaper)off and it seems to work. its just them learning fast and growing up as long as it is warm indoors i dont think you should worry to much about it :)

i have had to put an all in one under my little mans clothes to stop him pointing his little 'bits' straight up and drenching everything, three complete bed changes the other night. i let him keep his kit off after bath time for a nude romp around the house, seems to keep him satisfied and entertained

My daughter has been re-named "The Streaker"...LOL...she refuses to keep any clothes on and at times, she also refuses to keep her diaper on, too...although she always keeps shoes on...How sensible!  LOL  



Yes, I think it is normal.

Oh, you ladies are lucky! My daughter takes off everything but her undershirt..... DIAPER INCLUDED!!!!! I've recently begun taping her diaper closed, but she is a very independent little monster. I have noticed though, that if she is kept busy, she won't take them off.  It's alittle frustrating to keep her entertained all day, but hopefully the stage will pass soon!!!! Good luck!

That's funny, because just today my son took his pants off twice.  Socks have always come off, but the pants just started.  I was wondering , what the heck is he doing?  I haven't seen him do it , just my husband saw him the 2nd time.  He thinks its funny.  Glad to know hes not the only one!
