How did you solve this? im struggling with a "stripper" i dont think she is ready to toilet train (although she stirps and goes and sits on the toilet at home wipes flushed and washes her hand - but has never actually peed), She has less than 10 word and i thought i wasnt the best idea to start toilet trainging until she could say wees or toilet or something along those lines.

my daughter always used to rip her diaper off and i tried everything! DUCT TAPE! for real it works!! just put some on the straps (not on skin!!!)....i've been doing it for months as a last resort cuz i was tired of constantly having to wash the same sheets and blankets everyday! good luck!

I like the duct tape thing for the diapers lol. But what if you made it her responsibility to dress and undress at the appropriate times? Maybe she would see it as part of a routine and might not do it otherwise.

My oldest daughter would take off her diaper after we put her to bed and wet her bed. We used duct tape, at first we put it over the fasteners (she figured out how to get it off), then we just wrapped it around to the back and she never figured out how to get it off. We only needed to use it for about a week and she gave up. Your daughter may like the idea of pull ups but i would get the pampers brand or another brand that doesn't pull apart and fasten back together, they are more like real underwear and they are harder to take off. As far as potty training, she could be trying to let you know that she is ready. Have you noticed any patterns? Does she take her diaper off right after she has pottied or right before? If so then attempting to potty train will probably be the best thing. If she is not ready then dont try to force it on her she could end up being rebelious and then both of you are just fighting a battle that you cant win. It will take some constant work to get her potty trained, make sure you have enough time to put into it. If not it could end up lasting a lot longer than planned. If you have to leave her with a sitter they need to be just as consistent as you are with potty training. I hope this helps.

I have heard that if you put their pants on backwards it will help (Cause they can't reach the button that way) obviously that won't work full ones that just pull down. I hope that helps and good luck!

If you are at home and she wants to take off her clothes, go for it. Depending on her age, that fact that she is taking off her diaper could be her cue to you that she does not want to wear them and this a perfect opportunity to work on potty training. Get her some big girl undies and let her walk around in them, if she has an accident don't freak out just show her where the potty is and let her know that she should TRY to go there when she has to potty. I potty trained both my kids by letting them "be free" when we were at home. I would put the potty seat where they could get to it. Once she realizes that she has the control over her functions she will probably want to try harder to make it to the potty. MAKE IT FUN!! When and if she gets to the potty in time, praise her and let her know that she is a big girl and that she is doing a good job. I had my kids on a schedule once they got used to the potty seat. I had a timer and every 30 minutes it would go off and they would run to the potty seat and sit down, they would either go or not go. Don't try to force her to sit because then it becomes scary and she wont like it. The timer was to get them used to going regularly, sometimes kids get so caught up in what they are doing that they don't realize the sensation of having to potty and by the time they do its too late. Once she has mastered daytime potty training, the real fun begins with overnight. I would cut drinks off at 6pm and have my kids go at least 3-4 times before bed (8pm). In the beginning I would wake them up at least once during the night to go again. I know this is not ideal for everyone, but you will find something that works. Trust me once you get her going, there will be no stopping it, and you get to save money on diapers and pull-ups. OH and start now with introducing the flushing noise of the toilet, my son freaked out the first time i flushed the toilet with him in there. I hope some of this helps and sorry if I gave out more than you were looking for. Good Luck.

With the potty training it really depends on how old she is. I had a friend who swore her daughter was ready to train and she was, at 1.5. But it only lasted 5 months and was HORROR afterwards.

Let her have some naked time if all she really wants is to be naked?

When my daughter was little and this was before we tried potty training we put duct tape over the fasteners on the front of the diaper! LOL! It worked though and finally she gave up to where we could finally put a diaper on her without it and she was fine! Good Luck!
