How do you stop a 2 year old from smearing their poop on everything?

He's driving me crazy! He does it when I'm not watching and I've tried smacking, the naughty corner and getting him to clean it but nothing seems to work. I've explained to him that its naughty and smells yucky but he doesn't seem to care.

I haven't tried overalls which sounds like a great idea, he gets out of bonds suits but I will definitely try some overalls. Thanks for the advice guys!

Oh lordy, I do feel for you. Can you put him in clothes that are harder to get out of, like overalls or one-piece jammies?

Haha yeah his childcare tape it. It worked for a while but he figured out it was easy to take the nappy off like underwear. He has painted my entire lounge room while I was on the toilet before, hes an opportunist. My 1 year old tells me when she's done poos so at least I scored one good one.

OH!!! My daughter used to do that all the time too. Especially during nap time. It was EVERYWHERE. I never smacked her but what I did was wait and watch and catch her before she could do it.
Of course they don't care, they're 2 lol. It's new to them. She eventually stopped, but at one point I cried because she did it so much, she would paint everything even herself.
Try onesies? At least you'll have some time before he does it again to catch him. Tape his diaper? Not kidding here. I so feel for you.
