My daughter takes all of her clothes and diapers off like 4 times in the same day. Can anyone tell me why she does this?

cant tell you why but my daughter (almost 2) does the same thing all day long.

ALL CHILDREN LOVE TO BE NAKED , it is NATURAL-- it is the minds of the adults that is the problem....she is very bright, to wish to be her-self and not try to crush her spirit,,,but give her the respect that is called for here...................

Thank you ladies so much. My little sister used to do the same thing when she was Allison's age. It might be just a phase.

My son does the same thing I think it's so cute But not when he pee's in his crib.Some times he will get out of his crib an run around with just his sneakers or rain boots on the pictures r priceless. but I think it's pretty normal hopefully he grows out of it or we'll have big trouble on our hands, oh he's up now gotta go

Who can really tell you why. But I can tell you it is normal and common. For some it continues for years. Clothes are restricting and you can move better without them and a child is learning with touch and feel and maybe when naked they feel their movements more than we just take for granted. I am sure they can move more freely without their nappy, After all we are born with no clothes, many cultures who are bought up with no clothes when forced to wear clothes find them very restricting, we are just used to it and don't thin about it, I guess a child does. My daughter now 10 years always striped off for years even at 4, as soon as she got home from Kinda off went the clothes, didn't matter who was there, she started growing out of it by the time when was 5, my daughter now 3 used to like taking her nappy off many many times a day. Soon it became time to toilet train her and now she is fine, she likes her clothes. Don't worry too much I am sure it is just a stage. just remember don't make too big a deal over it, you don't want body image issues latter. She may also be enjoying the attention she gets from doing this?? Good luck ,

My daughter likes to do this, too. I just quietly dress her again. Usually she leaves her diaper on, though. If the diaper coming off is the biggest problem, you could try putting it on backwards or taping the tabs down. These tricks didn't work for me with my daughter, but they might work for you.

I can't tell you why, but maybe she likes the reaction you give. Even if it isn't positive, it might be "fun" to shock or annoy mommy. Maybe you can get her to only do it at home, or just put her clothes back on with no reaction or emotion, and she'll quit thinking it's fun? My daughter loves to run around the whole house naked after she gets out of the bath, and she used to scream "I naked!" over and over with glee.
