Here’s a no-fail, handy tip to prevent your child from removing his or her diaper at nap time!
I’ve had a couple of hooligans in my time who wait until they’re down for their nap to do their business, and then because they can’t stand to be in a poopy diaper, they remove whatever layers of clothing they need to in order to get to the diaper, and then the remove they offending diaper itself.
If you’ve ever faced this dirty-diaper-dilemma at your house, you know how nasty it can be.
Guess what! I have the solution for you.
The simple solution:
Get one of your child’s one piece, footless pyjama sleepers . If you don’t have a footless sleeper, CUT THE FEET off a footed set. Trust me, you’re going to be so happy with the results of this little endeavour, you won’t care about taking a pair of scissors to the jammies.
Now, put the sleeper jammies on your child BACKWARDS! Yep, that’s right! With the zipper at the BACK!
Chances are your child will not be able to get out of them, no matter how hard he or she tries.
It should be mentioned that a child who strongly dislikes being in a soiled diaper may be ready to toilet train.
Try putting your child on the potty before naptime. He or she may need some time to wind down before doing her business. After all, that’s what’s been happening in the crib. Be prepared to stay close by while your child looks at a book and relaxes on the potty for a bit.
You may or may not have success with this, but it’s certainly worth a try.
Regardless, you can rest easy when you put her down for her snooze, knowing that what happens in the diaper STAYS in the diaper thanks to the backwards jammies!
