Running free at home

ok so my family and I were having a conversation about my daughter going around free in the privacy of our home, and when I mean free I mean running around naked. Now the only reason why I'm not against it is because that's the only way she feels comfortable going potty at the house and of the simple of fact that she's a baby. Now when company is around we both feel that she should be covered but what's your take on this? Is it ok to run free or no?

Thank you all for your input because I thought I was the only one who felt this way.

I use to let mine and I wish I did not it was so hard to break her form it she is not modest at all. My second daughter I would not allow her to and she is very modest with her body. i think it is ok when it is just baby and mom if girl if boy mom and dad but they get mixed feelings thinking it is ok to walk around people that they should not when they get older. I started making my older daughter cover up and tell her other people are not to see anything a bathing suit is suppose to cover up, I was able to get her to start at least wear a t shirt and panties at the age of 5 and was so hard to break the nude scene. Don't get me wrong it is so very cute and we all laugh but it is encouraging them to continue to do so. This is just my opinion tho. Good luck

My daughter runs naked every day. She will come to me and say "its time to play naked girl." And off go the clothes. We live on a lake and she spent most of last summer naked outside. I only put her swimsuit on if there were people around I didn't know, like at the neighbors. My family expects to see her naked if they stop by in the evening. Let them be free while they can. There is no harm in a naked kid!!

My daughter (10 months) has naked time every single day. Not only is she more comfortable, and it's great at preventing and even fixing diaper rash but we do alot of messy activities this way...no clothes to worry about having to clean! My daughter goes naked in our home and at Grandma's house (because me visit Grandma about every other day and she agrees that children should be allowed to be naked!) But I too clothe my daughter in front of company including my siblings and close friends. I say keep doing it if it works for the both of you!!!

Both of my boys run around naked or close to it. Adam is required at the very least to have underwear on as he's nearly 8 years old and can understand the concept of covering up.
Logan, who's only 3, often runs around either naked or in a diaper. It's just that much easier for him to get to the potty if he doesn't have lots of layers to get rid of.

My older son puts clothes on when we have company but I still let Logan wander around in just a diaper for potty training purposes. Both of them obviously put clothes on to leave the house ;)
As far as I'm concerned, in the comfort of your own home- who cares?

Quoting Valerie:

We had to stay with my parents for a few months while we were waiting to close on our new house. My daughter (who is now 2) loved to run out after her bath and greet everyone in the living room stark naked. They thought it was hilarious! As long as they know that when they go outside they put clothes on then who cares? I myself like the freedom of no clothes when I'm home alone. :P



I so agree! My little one is 6 months but she loves being nudey! I can just picture her running around in the nud after a bath just like i used too!!! I still run around i my undies at home!(i would go nudey but my boobies need the support!) Its natures way of keeping cool, even though i used to let myself outside without my mum knowing. My neighbour would always dob me in! In hindsight probably not such a bad thing, but even though i was 4 i still loved freedom!!

My son does it most times when we're about to bathe him, he's 19 months and loves to run wild and free, plus I noticed that it helps his hiney heal faster if he has a bum rash, as long as it's at home do it, plus you have a chance at some cute bottom pics to embarrass her when she's big. :0)

when at your home it is ok... when you have people over are they close family & friends cause when we have maybe 1 or 2 close friends over that we trust & my children know very well... my kids are very free, having 5 under six my younger three ages 3,2 & 1 will go free as they are into potty training themselves atm & being too hot it keeps them cool. My older 2 are only allowed to be in a singlet & underwear but put shorts on when a friend comes over but they are 4 & 6 and being girls I would like them to do this. But if yours is only very young why not invest in some cloth nappy/training pants or really cheap underwear to use when guests are over... a little bit of being modest doesn't hurt and will help both of you with the next stage in toilet training. Keep the undies & pants on until you need to go in public!!!! LOL :-D

Yeah when your kid is little, I don't think that it's inappropriate to let your kid run around naked when people you know are over. For me, I would probably put a diaper/undies on her. But that being said, my daughter is not at the potty training stage yet! Maybe I will change my tune if she's like yours and won't go potty if she's covered up.

Hehe, It's totally okay! Until she moves out and gets her own place, this is the only time in her life that she can run around buck wild. No need to rain on her parade, plus it cuts down a little laundry.
