My son puts his hand down his pants when he sleeps

My son is almost 3 and when he takes a nap or goes to bed he puts his hand down his diaper and in the morning his bed and PJ's are all wet. He is not potty trained at all. I have tried taping his diaper and buying 1 piece PJ's. I need help!

Ok... I hate to laugh, but that's funny and totally normal. My oldest is almost 4 years old. The age of exploration plus, as hard as it is to think of it, even as little boys it feels good to them. I hope that helps. As for helping keep him dry I'm at a loss. I'm assuming that his diaper gets loose when he does this or he's aiming it upward. If this isn't the case you may try the overnight diapers or pullups which are more absorbant.

I wish you the best of luck.

Worry if he's still doing it at 18, actually not even then. He's found he has something cool there and it probably gives him a sence of security. Try to keep him from playing with it in public where he'll embarrass you but otherwise don't make it a tabu and the newness will wear off and he'll move on.

Hmmm, he has found his very best friend forever! How about onesies under jammies? He can have a great time with best friend in the bath and won't be wet at night.
