|Born for mischief|
How do you stop a 1 1/2 or 2 year old from stripping off their clothes and diaper? I have heard of this happening with other kids but I was unprepared for it to start with my own little one. It started only a couple days ago and he seems to be playing up this little childhood phase with a vengeance. As soon as I put his diaper and clothes back on, they are off again. He begins pulling the straps off as soon as I turn my back.
I put overalls on him to try to confound his efforts to remove his clothes. It worked for a while and then later I found him running around in only his diaper and the overalls were in his sisters crib of all places. However, the diaper was still on so I don't know if getting the clothes off was so exhausting he forgot about the rest or what..
Does every kid go through this phase? What causes it? Can I prevent it in my daughter who will be about this age in another year or so?
