My daughter is 18 months and she just does not like wearing clothes at all. It can sometimes be a hassle to get her dressed and even then every time its time for a diaper change she runs off to avoid her pants being put back on. She also likes to try to take her shirt off at times. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

My son is 4 and is the same way. Its normal. At least thats what i tell myself. Actually today he decided to take all his clothes off at sunday school and refused to put them back on. The teacher had to send someone to come get me. Cause he was having the teacher running around in circles trying to catch him. I was very embarassed. I couldnt help but to bust out laughing. She had me remove him and put him in the nursery. He didnt have any problem keeping his clothes on in the nursery.

My daughter is the same age and does the same thing. She likes to take her pants off all the time. She doesn't ever really mess with her shirt though. And I'm lucky enough for her to keep her diaper on. I think it's just a phase. Honestly I think if I didn't say anything to her she probably wouldn't do it as much. She likes to be stubborn.

my son went through it too. As long as your at home and your little girl is diapered I say go for it. She is just being independent, however I agree with Stephanie let her choose her outfits (from appropriate attire) who cares if it looks right she will appreciate it now that you let her choose her own look.

My son is the same, he is almost 3. At home if he wants no clothes on I let him.

yup!! My son wants to be naked ALL the time. I'll have no problem with it as soon as he is potty trained lol. I put him in onesis, button up shirts and overalls for the most part

:) yep. lots of kidlets go through that stage. :) hehehe.... my gals, if they weren't naked, they changed their clothes almost every hour. and in the oddest outfits too....

At home, I let them go with it. When it was time to go out, I insisted on clothing appropriate to the weather and location. but I usually let them choose one thing. green or blue shirt? skirt or shorts? that way they still feel in charge of themselves, at least a little. :)

have fun with your little nudist. :)
