When my daughter lays down, she takes off all her clothes...

and even her diaper and uses the bathroom and then gets real upset. She won't use the potty when we try she gets real upset but this only happens when she lays down for naps and to go to sleep at night. She uses the bathroom and then screams so we end up cleaning her 2-3 times a day. I've given her toys to play with but she still manages to unzip a zipper, unbutton a onsie, and bull off her clothes. Is there anything I can do to correct this? Might I add she is 2

My son started doing that when he was about that age. I tried putting the diaper on backwards and that worked for a couple days. One night I talked to him about it and was amazed that the next morning he still had all his clothes on. I learned that for about the first month I had to remind him every night not to take his clothes off or he would forget. He eventually learned and left his clothes on

Hi Melissa,

My daughter was doing this. We too have been having difficulty with her keeping her nappie/clothing we started letting her choose her outfits she can wear a princess outfit and her gumboots as longs as she is wearing clothing to suit the weather and her body temperature(she heats up very easy, I dont) We also bought alot of underpants there lighter aginst her skin, we got her favorite character on the underpants she still (6 months later) occasionally wets in them and poo's where she pleases however we make a big deal out of when she does use the toliet she refused the potty so we got a toilet seat. She comes in when I go and I put her on after I go.

All in all we learned that she will do it in her own time not all kids 'train' as well as others.
