Many kids go through this stage and she sounds a little young to be going through potty training. I, personally would not want to be cleaning the carpet each night. Try the LITTLE KEEPER SLEEPER - it's a specialty sleeper designed so that toddlers cannot get it off. It really works! It's just as cute an comfy as a regular sleeper, but the zipper is in the back, the neck has plenty of room, but does not stretch (so arms can't wiggle out the top) and it has a special snap system. People will suggest duct tape, lots of pins,etc. but those are all safety concerns for me. Check out the website at littlekeepersleeper.com.

My daughter is a little nudist as well. I have heard that most little girls go through this stage. At first before we started the potty training I was cleaning up a lot of pee spots off the floor. There really was nothing I could do to make her keep her clothers on. I just figured it wasn't a battle worth fighting. She doesn't strip when out in public, so I just don't worry about it. Lately she is starting to want to dress herself, so I suppose that's the next phase:)

Hey! I think as moms sometime we forget that children have no insecurities. We develop those as we get older. A child thinks with the most pure thought process. Coming from a medical backround.. it is complete normal for a child to want to be naked. When you are at home I think it is complete ok with letting your child run around without clothes on.. My 2 year old is in the same stage.. I completely ignore her when she strips and after about and hour or so she gets cold and brings me her clothes. Its like ignoring a tantrum in the store. If it doesnt get a reaction from you they will move on to a new attention getting behavior. As for the potty.. We used small wrapped presents on the back of the toliet.. Golden!!

If you are starting to potty train her it is great because she knows how to undress herself and that is stage one. I do not know how old your daughter is but i'm assuming she is at least 2-3 to undress herself and know how to rebel. My son does the same thing when he is upset. A method that worked with him was that I told him to pick out his clothing so he was happy with what he was wearing and did not throw off his pants. To this day he refuses jeans and your daughter might not like something as well. Also with her pulling of her diapar may mean that she just does not want it on anymore. You can always go to babies r us or a childrens store and bye "big girl underwear" which is what I called them to get my son very excited about wearing them. If she is not ready for undies keep her in pull ups. Just stick to the diapar at night since they cannot control their bladders yet. When she is ready to potty train make sure you are ready for accidents because they will happen. Take her to the bathroom every 15 to 30 minutes and make it fun. Get a potty training book that you read to her while she is sitting or sing a song. Make sure it is fun ans something she enjoys to do. Intitially you have to keep her on schedual and make sure she goes until she figures out her own schedual and urges and runs on her own. If she has an accident tell her that it is okay and just remind her that she has to run to the bathroom when she feels the need to go. I also had a potty in almost every room of my apartment to make sure he did not have to run to far initially! Good luck

hahahah my daughter 2 1/2 strips of at random home and the shops any time I am not watching she is soooooooooo sneeky. though she is getting better we just let her run around naked at home ( she is not toilet training ) and clothes for going out and she has to leaves them on! My suggestion is let her bye some big girl undies that she like eg dora and let her wear them as long as she keeps them on / or try pull ups they come in great designs now we use the prinsess ones of a night time and Ella says she dose not want to wee on snow white so it works for us. good luk
My twin daughters have been doing the same thing (although we are not potty training them)... I have been rewarding them with 2 minutes of "naked" time at the end of the day if they keep their clothes on. I remind them of this time during the day and it seems to be working.

If you're potty traing, and can stay home for a good week to do it, let her be naked or put big girl underwear on her and put her on the toliet every 20 minutes.. Its alot of work but it works, Trust me..If she keeps taking off her diaper it means she's ready to be out of it....I dont recommend pull ups, they feel like a diaper and she'll go in that too

I agree with Trinitys suggestion. For my oldest son he spent a lot of time naked just running around doing his thing. It was so much easier than the struggle with the clothes. My middle child has always been very modest so when she got to the taking the diaper off stage we just went to unders and rubbers and she was potty trained with in a matter of weeks. I'll keep you posted with the youngest.

That is something that is natural for all children. Just make sure that you reinforce that the clothes should stay on.... Now I had my daughter naked while trying to potty training her bacause she didn't like it to dribble down her leg so she ran to the restroom. I would clean the carpet every night though. But it is all in how you approch it that matters. You might change from diapers to pull ups for her though and tell her this is the next big girl step. And let her know that you wish for her to leave her clothes or put her in a lot of dresses.
