Quick Tip: How To Stop Your Child From Taking Off His Or Her Diaper

I came home late from work last night and my baby was in her crib crying. My husband had put her to bed and was working on getting the next child down. Her cries sounded different than usual, so I decided to go in and check. I found her standing buck naked in her crib (diaper and pajamas thrown out of the crib) in a puddle of pee. I now have first-hand experience with a common complaint, the kid who takes off the diaper.

My simple solution is the same answer for the kids who picks their belly buttons, put a onesie on the child. Usually, the effort required in bending forward and undoing the snaps is enough to prevent the child from taking off the diaper.
