Ask your question

  • When my little ones did that I started putting the nappy on backwards or putting undies / pilchers on top of it.
    Masking tape works well too.



  • Try taping the nappy with masking tape right around it. Otherwise an all on one suit you can buy winter and summer ones



  • My son has started doing this, now he’ll usually take his nappy off when hes pooed then sit on the toilet, so I’ve got more serious about toilet training now as he seems determined. Give toilet training a go.



  • he might be ready for toilet training Give it a try



  • This is a sign of wanting to be toilet trained, my son did this. But you could put him in a jumpsuit, might help.



  • You could put duck tape on each side.



  • Hahahahah those are horrible times. Very familiar with this story



  • I agree with others – possibly an early sign of wanting to toilet train. Miss 2 began taking all of her clothes off – ESP nappy – at the same time as she began self toilet training. Perhaps Pull Ups might be better and you could try leaving a potty out for him too (perhaps near the tv)? Good luck!



  • I still have my 2 1/2 y.o in those all in 1 short leave outfits. can’t un button the press studs.



  • put his appy of backwards or put him into a jumpsuit backward with a zip that doesn’t have feet so he cant indo it I would take it as a sign tt his ready to toilet train



  • I would take that as a sign its time to toilet train. Congratulations, it will probably go quite well if he’s that averse to having a pooey nappy on.



  • Maybe coveralls or a onsie that he can’t undo will help



  • time to toilet train. if he feels the need to poo he might just go to the toilet



  • He might be ready for toilet training?



  • We are trying nappy pants, but she has already figured out how to take them off, onesies can work, especially the ones with zips and buttons, god luck I feel your pain!
