So we've been having problems with our 20-month old's naps (yes, it HAS been that long since I posted, sorry guys!) When I go in to get her up from her naps I find this...
Yes, that's her empty diaper (which means there's a toddler with a bare bottom in the crib also), which often means changing all the bedding after she's wet the bed!
The problem here is that this happens off and on, so we never know how to plan for it. She'll go several days where she takes it off every naptime/bedtime and then weeks where she doesn't do it at all.
So what do we do? Yes, I know supervision will keep her from taking off her diaper, but she won't go down to sleep if I'm in the room (and I do keep her from removing it the rest of the day).
We've turned her diaper around backwards. It works, although she's more likely to leak since diapers aren't meant to be worn backwards. Plus it chafes. Plus sometimes she does still slide out of them. She's wiggly like that.
We've bought plastic training diaper covers. They work reasonably well, although the smallest size I can find is a 2T, which is huge on her. She hates the crinkling and walks around like a sumo wrestler (it's hilarious though!). Again she can still remove them.
Both of those ideas DO currently work, although who knows how long they will continue to work?
What's left? Duct tape? I know it's supposed to work well but the idea of duct taping my toddler into her diapers doesn't sit well with me, although I do know people who have done it.
So what do I do? We're working on potty training but she's not all that interested at the moment.
Any ideas folks?
