She is constantly undressing herself

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi, 

does anyone have a tip? I think my LO starts getting ready for potty training, and we are starting, but she is constantly getting of ALL of her cloth (in the minute I don't look) including nappies/underwear. 

 

I tried putting her on the loo every 15 min, but she does not really get it yet. I mean, she pees, but it does not stop her peeing five min later on the floor. 

 

I am not sure if this is a toilet training problem or an undressing problem. 

 

I think I dressed her at least 10 times today, and I honestly think it is too cold to let her just run around naked...

 

anyone with the same problem?

How old is she?  We had great success at 15mos peeing on the potty doing the bare bottom thing in the house.  But long story short my FIL screwed that up and we had many accidents and potty phobia, and gave up until on her 2nd birthday she asked to start using the potty and has been diaper free since Nov 13th - except for pooping.  She had a week of pooping on the potty about...3 weeks ago now, FIL screwed that one up (AGAIN !!!!!) and she currently asks for a diaper to poop in, but at least she doesn't poop in her pants, so we're letting it be.  Occasional night accident or trouble getting pants down but otherwise she's been great!  As for the undressing, she just ran around last night after her bath yelling "look at me, I naked, I a naked baby mommy!" laughing hysterically :rotflmao I figure if she's cold she will let me know, but it did take a few weeks for her to figure out that she could pee without completely removing her clothes, sounds pretty typical of the learning curve and depending on her age she may not get it just yet.

thank you for the tip! at this moment, she is naked again :eyesroll. She is 26 month old. 

 

We have our heating quite low, at around 65 degrees, and I would be cold. My kids are much more cold resistant though, they are running around in underwear all the time ...

My 3 year old is naked ALL the time.  It's just what he prefers.  I think it just feels better, freer, and my guess is that it probably doesn't have anything to do with potty training.  

 

I let DS be naked all the time, unless we are leaving the house to run errands.  If he's cold, he'll tell me, and it's rare.  They really don't feel cold like we do.  It's about 50F this morning and he came with me outside to let the dog out - me wearing slippers and long jammies and freezing, him totally naked and totally fine.

Aren't kids weird sometimes...if she would be toilet trained, it would not really matter, but this mopping the floor (or the furniture) every seven minutes gets a bit tiring...

Hmmm, maybe you could try underwear? The novelty of this new type of clothing might encourage her to wear them, at least long enough to pee on them and discover it's no fun to have wet underwear, and hopefully helping her to discover the sensation that arises when you have to pee...

How old is she? What if you put a onesie on her to keep her diaper on? Is she able to take that off?

Yes, she is. If I am at my wits end, I put a pyjama backwards on her, she cannot take that one of :)
