WFMW: the "locking" diaper

If your baby can't resist the urge to pull the tabs on his diaper (and allow it to fall to the floor and then run around the house laughing) simply turn the diaper around and put it on so the tabs are in the BACK.

For the past six months Alex has confounded us with taking his diaper off at very inopportune times, especially after we put him down at night. And so many times I'd like to let him roam the house in just a T-shirt and diaper, but inevitably I hear the rip and rip of the diaper tabs and then the chase is on. I hadn't yet resorted to duct tape...

Then the other day I was talking about my dilemma with a mom-friend and she said she used to turn their daughter's diapers around and it worked great for her. It has worked beautifully for us, too.

I had heard of doing this, but forgot about it. After my dd recent poocasso adventures, I ought to try it. Thanks!

Great tip. Our daughter had been removing her diaper, but has stopped. I'll remember this if she starts back up again. Thanks!

Oh, the memories your post brought back! I once used surgical tape to tape my son into his diaper. I just couldn't bear dealing with one more poopy mess when he put his hand down his pants at the worst possible moment! Great idea--my baby girl has just learned that pulling her diaper off gets a crazyfun response out of Mommy! Wonder why?

That is an awesome idea! I haven't run into this problem yet, but I know I will and I so grateful for a game plan ahead of time!
