my almost 2 yr old daughter will NOT keep her diaper on. I have found my self cleaning up poop out of her floor this morning. She apparently woke up in the middle of the night and took her diaper off and pooped in the floor and spread it all over the carpet :) Anyway we are potty training but she can't hold anything in yet and doesn't understand to tell us before she does it. I've tried onesies but she can get out of any clothing I put on her. Anyone have or have had the same problem?

Yep....it may sound unusual but I have heard of using duct tape to hold it on just were the tape fastens anyway. Its so strong they usually can't get it off!

Here's the solution that I have heard works - put her in footed zip-up jammies and put them on backwards so the zipper is in the back :) Hope this helps!

my daughter is 3 now but when she was 2 i went through the same thing so we finally started putting pull ups on her and putting shorts with belt loops on her and putting a belt on so she could take it off. It worked for a couple days then she stopped tryin to take her diaper off. Hope this helps.

I'm a grammy with full custody, so I'm learning all over again. She would take her pajamas and diaper off. I got her to stop by putting on pajamas that snapped in the crotch, she couldn't get them off. I would also tell her, after the cuddle and bedtime routine, once she was lying down - be a good girl and keep your diaper on. When I went to bed I checked to be sure she still had it on, and if not I put one on her. She got praised for keeping it on. She's been fine since

LOL I have this same problem with my 20 month old he does it all the time. I had to make sure he had shorts on all the time when he learned how to take those off I switched to pull ups now he has figured those out as well so im in the same situation if you find something that works PLEASE let me know

Unfortunately there is no solution, it's a toddler period that they all go through.

I have 3 nieces they all did it and now I have a 2 year old son who is starting to undress and take his diaper off, also. Just stay ontop of it is all I have to offer:)

yeah, my 18 month old son, who we are potty training, doesn't keep a diaper on either. I just let him run around bare butted and keep a close eye on him. When he needs to go I make sure he gets to the potty on time.
Your daughter is two years old. She understands when you tell her things. Tell her that she needs to keep her diaper on at night or will happen. If she takes it off then do what you said.
When you see her pee/poop on the floor point out to her "look, you're peeing! pee goes in the potty"...then take her to the potty. A few times of that and she will understand that she needs to get to the potty to pee. Give her some credit - two year old kids are smarter than you think! (and are capable of controlling their bladder and bowels)

Not there yet, but like the cloth diaper suggestion, perhaps getting a few diaper covers and fastening them with diaper pins. I use zip up onesie PJ's for my girl, because she likes to unfasten one side of her diaper for some reason, then she leaks all over her bed and gets quite upset.

My son does that every so often. Granted it's usually when he poops. What we were doing is we had a cloth diaper and a cover. He couldn't get the fastners off. They were pretty tight snaps. If you wanted to try I think Nicki's diapers has them for 9.75. If it's only a night it is possibly not to have a full stash just a few. The snaps on these things are pretty tight. My son couldn't unsnap them. However he can take disposables off or velcro diapers. This was the only way to go till just recently.
