Double Diaper Duty

Jonathan, like many other pre-potty toddlers, enjoys removing his diaper. Generally, he only does this when he's supposed to be sleeping. I'm pleased and surprised that he's the only one so far that is doing this. At nap times I just put him to bed, telling him how happy I'll be if he keeps his diaper on, hope for the best, and give him lots of praise when he keeps it on.

But at night we have to be more creative.

So since Jonathan likes his diaper to be here...

FIRST we put on the diaper

SECOND we put on the pajama shorts

THIRD we put on the one-piece pajamas BACKWARDS so they snap in the back. The one-piece pajamas used to work by themselves because he hasn't figured out how to get out of them, but then he figured out how to get the diaper off and pull it out through the leg hole.

Yeah! This diaper is staying on!!!
