Anyone else dealing w/this?<br>
My 19mos. old refuses clothes, especially diapers while we're home during the day. THe biggest joy in his life is pottying in the bushes in the backyard and Goodness Forbid that clothes should get in the way. SO, just to make sure, he won't wear clothes anymore.<br><br>
He'll go hours. A little bug spray and a dinosaur hat. Hours.<br><br>
Funny kids, aren't they.<br>
Hope this is a passing stage.

passing phase?? My ds who is 32 months old has been in this phase for over a year. He's a nudist!! Outside, inside . . . .he must always be naked. His joy is going outside naked and driving around in his little car or playing in the sandbox. You'd think the sand in his butt crack would hurt but I guess it doesn't.<br><br>
From one mom of a nudist to another . . . . sit back, relax and enjoy. It's a fun phase! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

my dd whips everything off pretty much the instant we get home. then she runs through the house yelling ' I nakkkkkkkeeeeeyyyyyyyy!' like clothes are a horrible torture device.lol<br><br>
My aunt thought I was joking until yesterday. in the middle of a diaper change W ran for it ripping her shirt off doing her 'I'm nakey' war cry. I thought my aunt was going to fall off her chair.

My ds has no mantra . . . unless grabbing your foreskin and stretching it counts as one <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

Dd starts shedding clothes the moment she comes in from pre-school. Sometimes she just looks at me earnestly and says, "I want to be naked, yes?"<br><br>
I am glad that she's not the only one. We do have to explain to guests that this is now a clothing optional B&B since there's no keeping her out of the main courtyard. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

OMG! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh">: I'm laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes!<br><br>
Dd (3 yrs) will wear a shirt, but from the waist down she's pretty much naked all the time. I can dress her in the morning, but as soon as she has to go potty, the clothes start coming off. She's been naked since she go mobile - that would be about 2 years now :LOL Quite a phase.

ds is naked all the time, too...usually he tolerates a shirt, but he'll tug on that and ask for help a lot, too (15 mo)...he's so beautiful and he's so happy<br><br>
I'm completely comfortable with his nakedness, though I might have to start wearing a little more myself around him since he has started pointing out how we are different and he wants to touch (when we are in the bath together)...am I doing better to cover up (with what that insinuates) or just tell him that it's mommy's vagina and it's not for touching? hhmmm<br><br>
what really annoys me right now is that MIL comments on his nakedness every time she sees him naked...like it's "wrong" and I don't want to convey that to him...oh, and my mom (mother of 3 girls) asks why he would be playing with his penis and foreskin..."does it itch?"...nahh, Mom, it just feels good and he's exploring his body DON"T MAKE FACES!!!<br><br>
anyway, you ladies gave me a good laugh and made me feel like he's not the only one! thanks!!

About the getting curious about body parts . . . my ds is 2.5 y/o and I just tell him that it is mommy's vulva/vagina and it is a private part. My private parts are only for certain people to touch, like doctors or daddy or me. I tell him he is a boy and has a penis and that is his private part that no one can touch but him unless he says the person can. He seems to get that. He still looks at it when we are in the shower . . . sometimes even crouching down to get a better look but he doesn't touch. I don't know if this is the "right" way or not but it's what works for us.

ah yes the foreskin<br>
last night ds pointed out to everyone "look I'm pulling/tickling/poking on my penis". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> so excited that he found it, knew its name and could play with it. I was trying so hard not to laugh.

Oh, this is all too funny! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I've got a 2.5 yo here who's preferred attire is ballet slippers and fireman's hat (and nothing else). A heavily dressed day for her is a playsilk worn flowing down from the back of the hat, rofl...

"Mamma is a naked baby, Grandma" I was headed to the shower while ds was on the phone! Ds LOVES to be naked too. He learned to pee on the grass last summer. A couple weeks ago, he came in and told me that he pooped on the grass. I asked him why? He explained that if you can pee on the grass, you can poop there too. sigh.<br><br>
Oh, did I mention, we live in a large apartment complex and he was playing/pooping right next to the door into the building?

My ds also has an obssesive need to be the nekkid boy. I was told that this is because he has sensory issues related to his autism. I personally thinks he just like to not wear clothes. Cause he will do the same thing most of your children do. As soon as we get inside our place he is taking off his clothes and doing his nekkid dance routine. Maybe he would have less of an aversion to clothes if the rest of us were always fully dressed. If we don't have shoes on {practically} he takes that as his "ok" to get nekkid. Whatever works for him is my motto. At least he has stopped trying to take his clothes off in resterants. *sigh*
