My son did this. I put him in a onesy and that worked for awhile until he learned how to unsnap them. He might also be getting ready for potty training. I started the potty training with him by just going commando. He actually only had 1 accident going this way and thankfully he peed on the tiled floor and not the carpet. After about a month of going commando we started working with him to put underwear on. He started having more accidents once we put underwear on him but caught himself quickly. We only used pull-ups for about a week at night time then he didn't want anything to do with them. He now is in underwear full time and in the past 2 weeks has only had 2 over night accidents. Good luck!!

my son just turned 2 and is taking his clothes off and peeing, mostly at naps and in the morning but he does do it outside and around the house. Forget the idea of jammies on backwards or diapers for that matter, he pulls his arms out of his jammies and then pulls them off. It takes him a few minutes but he's getting better at it. He's crafty to, I now stay in his room after I put him down to make sure he's about to sleep before I leave, but he fakes it and waits until I leave then pulls everything off. He doesn't even undo the diaper just pulls them off. I'm not sure if tape would even help that!!! I'm at a loss, he is potty training but that doesn't seem to help!

My son is diong the same thing. He is constantly taking his diaper off at nap and bedtime. We have tried putting a onsie on him, but he can un-snap it. We started putting the onsie backwards, but he figured that out too. I tried the diaper backwards, with a backwards onsie, and that was off too. I dont know what else to do! He is almost 2 1/2 years old, but he doesnt really talk yet, so the thought of trying to potty train him is just frustrating since he cant tell us if he has to go. He is in speech now, so I'm hoping in a couple months he will be talking more and he can be potty trained, but for now I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. We have also tried pull ups, but he can pull those down without a problem. If someone else has any suggestions I would be happy to know!

Both my older kids have gone through this. I finally resorted to duct tape over the diaper tabs....and then they would reach up inside and pull poop out and throw it around the room. They always seemed to poop right at naptime. Sigh. It's a phase, it gets better. The best tip I received for getting through it was to clean them up in a cool (not icy!) shower instead of a warm bath. The warm bath is too much like a reward fopr bad behavior. It helped. Hang in there.

Sleeper! Always put them in something they can't get to the diaper easily! I know it sounds crazy but if that don't work talk to him and tell him this has to stop and why! if he continues you could try! The plastic bedcovers,plastic over pants and maybe a towel under him! I feel for you i got one that forgets her pullup sometimes or leaks and i am tired of wshing sheets and scrubbing beds!

My son does the same thing. I have learned to put vinyl pants overtop of his pull ups at night to prevent him from wetting in the bed. You can also check on child during the night to double check to see. Boys are really fascinated with their body parts.

somewhat. He will go most of the time if i put him on every hour, if i don't he'll just pee in the pull-up. Sometimes he refuses to go - runs away and kicks and screams if i try to make him. He'll also pretty much only go for me, not the sitter or my husband. I would like to have a potty training boot camp and do the 3 days without diapers/pull-ups, just right to underwear or comando and see how it goes. problem is i work full time and don't have a 3 day stretch off for another month or so...may try it then

somehow my son can get the diaper off while still keeping the onsie on...ridiculous. so naptimes are challenging cuz there's no pjs to put on backwards. i may try to put the underwear on over the diaper...pretty sure he can get those off too though

Hi there, my twins used to take there nappies off in their cots wasn't sure if it was because there was 2 of them and they were bored or what but it was so frustrating so we started puting their nappies on backwards and it really does work by the time the figured out that they were backwards they were in pull ups and it took them a while to figure out how to get them off :)

Hi my son is just turned 1 years old and he does that also but its to get easy access if you know what I mean. I had two girls before my son and I can't believe how much they touch themselves LOL but anyway I bought some cloth pullup pants to put over them so he can't take them off. We call them pilchers in Australia. hope that helps xx

LOL my 21 month old is doing this too. Our other girl did the same thing. Backwards jammies worked for a time but they figured out how to get out of them quite quickly anyway. The taping the diaper on does work though. I just make sure the ends of the tape are at the back where they can't reach them to tear off the tape too. Worked like a charm for both of them. =)
