Pancakes and Nekkidness

So we have ourselves a predicament. Declan has developed a new, ummm, habit. Let me just get right to it: he strips down nekkid at naps, when we lay him down for bed and in the morning. Why is this not in the "What to Expect" books? They should add that chapter right along with the possible need of a crib tent and other things it seems my child randomly does/needs. So, smart friends, what to do? I'm leaning towards duct tape for tonight. No, really, I am.

On a different, not so strange note, Declan inhaled his Papa's home made blueberry pancakes this morning. Apparently he didn't get the memo that I'm not eating carbs and the torture that ensues preparing all his faves. ;)

We duct-taped Ava in her diaper. I've also heard of people having success with backwards-diapering or backwards jammies so they can't reach the closures.

But duct tape worked rather well here. And after a week or so Ava forgot she could and we stopped taping her in.

I've heard that you can put zippered PJs on backwards so they can't reach the zipper, and if they are footie PJs preventing you from putting on backward, you can just cut off the feet and use socks. I don't know if this only works on younger kids, or if Declan would be able to work his way out of it anyway, but maybe it's worth a shot?

We totally did the backwards jammies thing (have to cut out the footies, meh, totally worth it!) and it worked GREAT for Lukka. Not only did he never understand how that worked (SCORE!) but he slept better because he wasn't distracted by the fun of taking off all his clothes.

Hope it works!

A couple weeks ago, Andrew made a nasty mess involving poop during nap time. Easy solution: put him in footed pjs, the kind with the long zipper. Use a safety pin to keep the zipper closed. You may have to go to a carters store to find them in 2t or 3t size. Since the pin is near his neck, he can't see it well enough to open it. Craptastrophies averted!
