Re: Twins peeing in crib. Please help!!

wow this turned fast.
dd is NOT potty trained fwiw. she is 19 months and while we do part time EC she isnt there yet. she does however love to escape anything(rooms, her clothes, shoes, tights, etc) shes our houdini. after one night of non stop screaming bc she took all her clothes off and then was cold. (put back on and repeat) i started putting her in houdini jammies. i didnt have footies to turn around backwards and she got out of everything we already had, clothes wise. our situation had nothing to do with pee but a few times she did wake up in the am and take off a poopy diaper (mama, eeew. mama, poop, uh-oh, poop. lol) she knows what the potty is for and she uses is sometimes before bed(its offered) but i still want her diaper and clothes to stay on all night. and im pretty sure thats where OP is. does she want to avoid pee all over theplace, HECK YEAH who doesnt?!?!?!? i know every morning when i get up i will have "x" amount of messes to clean just from dh going to work, the girls going to school and foster puppies. i do not want to add more work for myself first thing in the am. i also dont want to get up every 5 minutes at night bc dd is cold and naked again. i want to sleep at night and in the morning sit and expose my body to high level of caffeine until i wake up

Re: Twins peeing in crib. Please help!!

I like the potty before nap idea in particular for you daughter as you said you think she might be ready for potty training. My only issues with turning the jammies is 1 one twin can easily undo it for the other twin and 2 the neck line is high. I think backwards it would be uncomfortably high. I think for that the duct tape would be the best option so far. My 2 year old can easily undo snaps.

My DD did this too, right around that age actually. Shortly after she figured out how to climb out of her crib so we had to remove one of the sides. At least then she would usually come running to me to show me she was naked cause she was so proud of herself. Sigh... Though there was the time she went to the kitchen instead and pooped on the floor, that taught me to wake up quickly when I hear a noise!

Anyway she grew out of it eventually. And now it's useful because we're PTing and she can take off her own diaper (snap pockets) to go potty.

Have you tried something as simple as a backwards snap diaper cover? Or even a pocket shell? DD has a harder time with the BG snaps, I think because they are closer together so you need more force.

Good luck!

I wasn't comparing duct taping to running in the parking lot. I was comparing Child WANTS to take her diaper off/ to child WANTS to run in the parking lot.

The child's wants are not always accommodated. In the situation of two kids both undressing and then wetting the bed, it's not the precious sheets. It's getting two kids out of a wet cold bed, and then undoing sheets for two cribs (which is an aerobic exercise it'self) washing those sheets, and putting them back on again. Plus blankets, jammies, etc.

In this case, what the kid wants is not as important as the Mom's needs for less work. We can't always go to such length for our kids, even when we want to.

Personally I would try to potty train but that's just what we've done with our boys when they started taking off there diaper. They've all potty trained between 18 months and before 2. At night for back up protection from the diaper rip off. We did a onesie and then pjs. They could never take off the onesie for some reason where the diaper was easy.

Or you can use a diaper pin on the real sleepers, and pin the zipper to the top of the jammies. Carters used to sell the sleepers with a little cover over the zipper.

Cut the feet off a sleeper, (one size too big) and turn them around.
Love the idea of a diaper pin!

Forcing a kid to use the potty only backfires majorly.

Good luck hope the tape works
I'm just now coming back to this post. I do agree that my girl twin is close to wanting to potty train but not totally ready.
Thank you for the constructive advice

Re: Twins peeing in crib. Please help!!

My boy twin has shown no signs in wanting to potty train. My oldest was 3 before he was potty trained. Julia does get to sit on the potty anytime she wants. Of course nothing comes out yet. But I do encourage it. So far I have been taping just across the tabs on the diaper. A lot of times I would find a dry diaper on the floor and she had popped and peed in the crib.
I'm just trying to cut down on the extra mess.

Just be careful. I tried the diaper pin on my 17 month old DS to try to keep him from taking off his zip up sleep blanket (was trying to discourage him from climbing out of his crib) and he pulled hard enough that it bent the pin and it came off!!! Fortunately he didn't get hurt, but I never tried that again!
