My daughter (20 months) has been taking her diaper off for some time now. Can you imagine the mess when she takes a nap? It is all kinds of diapers. I have been potty training for about a month. She is getting it but I want her to stop taking the diaper off during the nap. I clean up bowel every day!. we have tried to put the diaper on backwards, ducktape, and ducktape with it backwards. For a time, she got it off with a onesie on and still buttoned!. I am at my wits end. Please help!!!!!!

My son did that when he was about 5 months old. He did it mainly because his diaper was too small. Perhaps using a larger size diaper? The only thing that you could try is pullups or good nights. They slip on like underwear. It could be harder for her to get them off. Whereas diapers tear off, pullups & goodnights need to be pulled down to be taken off. It's worth a try. Also, if she's getting them off through a onesie try getting sleepers that zipper, they could help prevent her from ripping the buttons. Those are the only things I can think of that could help. Good Luck :)

She doesn't do it at night. Only during the day. The zipper sleepers, she takes off and any shorts. The diaper is the right size (she is 24 lbs and in a size 4). Her doctor said it was because she doesn't like the feel of it but she wont do it in the potty chair. Thanks for the help though. My child is too smart!

Get the Little Keeper Sleeper. No safety pins or duct tape. This company created the perfect sleeper that all parents of toddler should have. It works GREAT!! See for yourself at

my child is on potty training too and we use the pull ups diapers from huggies. from then on we are confident that he can not just take it off so easily like the usual diapers. for when the child reaches the tape they can really easily take of the whole diaper for it falls off. you should be proud your child is intelligent but i know what you feel about cleaning a lot of mess when a child is potty training. my wife is very patient on those things. goodluck hope my suggestion works for you for it works for us
