    Default 20mth old wont keep nappy and clothes on at night...

    Can anyone tell my why my 20mth old is taking all her clothes and nappy off during the night and therefore wee/poo on the bed!!???
    Im changing her sheets daily and being 33 weeks pregnant, it's really testing my patience!!!
    I just cheked on her and she was standing on her bed, naked, hugging her teddy, wet clothes, wet sheets. Didnt cry or yell out.
    Nappy is sometimes dry and sometimes wet.

    What can i do to keep her clothes and nappy on? and why is she taking them off??? ive tried press studs, onesies, zips, sewing top to bottom (lol) she manages to get anything and everything off.

    im going nuts!

    Oh how frustrating! Hmmm, what about a sleeping bag put on back to front? She sounds like a little houdini!

    Some little ones just like being rudey!
    I had the same problem with my twins so feel your pain, except I wasn't heavily pregnant.
    They'd rip them off and pee and poo everywhere.
    I ended up duct taping their nappies on and would cut them off lol.
    PITA but only thing that worked until they grew out of it at around 2 and a half. They still take off all their clothes and sleep naked but not really a problem now they're fully TT.

    My son would do this and not too long ago ... He would do it in the middle of the day also strip naked a would giggle when you busted him ...
    We found that using a sleeping bag on him with a safety pin fastened across the zipper on the in side worked for him.... A few months later he grew out of it and we no longer have to use this method he now goes to bed in normal PJ's........

    Oh and one more thought, which won't help with the undressing thing but might make it slightly more bearable- you could layer sheets on her bed, like mattress protector- sheet- mattress protector- sheet, so at least you don't have to make up the bed again, just strip the top layer off.

    im a bit worried to put a sleeping bag on her as it might be a bit of a hazard when she wants to get off/into bed. She cant walk in them. I dont see it as a long term fix?
    Ive had the mattress protetor on top of the sheets but when that's in the wash and hasnt dried in time im screwed! So not keen on buing multiple sheets and protectors!!! $$$$$!!!!!

    Have u tried putting her nappy on backwards? So the tabs are at the back or will she just reach around and get it off ?

    Lol it's more acceptable than murdering your children for spreading poo through their room daily

    Oh yeah sorry I was thinking if she were in a cot for the sleeping bag thing. Looks like it's duct tape time!
