I think its just a phase they go through at one time or another...my 21 month old daughter still takes her diaper off too. Not as much as a few months ago, but I think it's becuase it gets wet and she doesn't like that(close to potty training perhaps?). And she is always putting mine and Daddys close on, it's just curiosity and she is learning! I let her do it unless we are in bed then I scold her(softly) and put shorts or pants on over her diaper! Good luck!

Can you put her in clothes she cant undo? My niece did that and SIL dressed her in clothes she couldn't get off for about a year until she grew out of it. I rememer tops that button up all down the back and belts too difficult for her to undo.

My boys spent most of 18mth to 3 yrs naked. They would get in the house and be strippin of as they went to play. The more you make it a hassel or a bad thing the more they love to push that button. I like the Sleeper idea thats a good one for bed. Have you started toilet training her, this is a good chance and a sign that my friends and I have noticed with our kids. You could also put things on that she cant take off, might be a pain for a while but she may stop trying after a while. eg bodysuit under everything.

Good luck, less washing in the machine! :)

I started putting sleepers on him backwards.. Otherwise I would take and put a onesise on backwards and the pj's on him that same way.. Even went as far as to put his diaper on backwards.. Other then that i am not sure... These are just things i use for our son and i plan on using these same things on my 10 month old daughter when she starts.. My son however has stopped since putting clothes on him wrong.. Hope this is helpful.. Take Care and Best Wishes..
