My daughter is 2 and she continues to take her diaper off everytime she goes to sleep, and of course she pees the bed. I am washing her sheets everyday! I do not know what is going on with her lately, it is a fresh diaper. When I grab it out of her crib, its dry... She says she wants to use her potty sometimes but she never does she likes to sit on it and I dont have a problem with that, she is getting use to it. But I do not know how to keep her from taking her diaper off so I am not washing her sheets and her "babies". Also her "babies" are her blankets and she has to have them all the time and its hard when I have to wash them constantly! Ugh I need help. Is this behavior normal for a child and how can I get her to use the potty or not take the diaper off?

try training pants not pull ups those plastic panies you put over underwear that may help with the sheets not getting wet

oh man do i feel for you. i HATED this period! i was washing sheets 2 and 3 times a DAY for a while - she'd take her diaper off after being laid down for nap, pee, then yell for mommy. repeat at least 2 more times before I gave up and brought her downstairs....

I'm sorry i can't think of anything else. a straight jacket??

take the sheets off and let him sleep on vinyl? if he doesn't like it, say, you have to be a big boy and keep your diaper on....


just an idea. Dunno if it would work...you tried the footed sleeper with the feet cut off, put on backwards? my daughter never figured that one out...

I would love some more ideas ... I tried all the ones mentioned, he even broke the zipper on the backward sleepsack and when I used safty pins he managed to pull those appart and I got very scared and was very lucky he didn't get hurt. Now I am at my witz end ... any more ideas out there?

Thank you
Claudia

we had the very same problem with my then 22-23 month old daughter. she always took her diaper off anytime she was in bed. and everyday after her nap she would always poop and take her diaper off and paint all over the crib. i started asking everyone i knew for suggestions, and got a few. some worked, others didn't. things like: put 2 diapers on, one the right way and one backwards (she also seemed to soak through EVERYTHING
at night when she kept it on, so this helped), putting underwear on over her diaper, jammies that snapped at the waist or one piece outfits, and finally duct tape. i never got around to the tape because thankfully she grew out of it. hope this helps!

I had this problem...drove me buggy. duct tape didnt' work - she was THRILLED to help me put the duct tape on, then tore it off again when laying down. (and tore the diaper, leaving little clear gel pellets full of pee all over her bed, herself, blah blah blah). zipper/snap jammies didn't work - she got them off. same with bibs, duct taped clothes, etc. The solution that worked for us? i cut the feet off a zip-up sleeper and put it on her backwards, zipper in the back. THAT Worked. we did that for several weeks, then went back to regular jammies. for about a week she was good, then went back to taking off her diaper. back to backwards jammies for a couple of weeks....and now she's fine. She hasn't taken her diaper off in months. However, if i can just get her to go poop in the potty, all will be good. (she'll be 3 next month. UGH!).

good luck!

I had to put my son in the zip up pj's with the snap at the top so he couldn't get to his diaper. They also make ones that the shirt and pants snap together at the waist and that helps too.

You might want to try putting her diaper on backwards, so the tabs are in the back. That seriously confuses them & they can't figure out how to do it backwards. I did it with both of my kids 7 it worked. Good Luck!

Have you tried Pull Ups my son thinks they are for big kids and he can easily slip them off when he wants to use the potty
