I normally like to share all the cute stuff that the kids do on this blog, but this post is not so cute. We are having a serious recurrent issue with sweet little Vivian. She's just about 23 months old, still in a crib, and she is now fascinated with what goes on inside her diaper. She loves to sit on the potty, make a "pshhhhh" sound, pretend to wipe, and flush it. Now that's cute and seems promising so what's the problem? We're definitely not "there" yet, but at least she's interested. Right?
Well, she has this little habit of taking off her PJ's, clothes, whatever, including the diaper during the night and naptime. (We do not have a video monitor so we have no idea this is going on because she is the quietest child and you never hear her until you go and get her, pretty much.) I walked into her room this afternoon and she had done it again. This is about the 4th time that she has cleaned out her stinky diaper and thrown the contents on the floor next to her crib. The evidence is also smeared on her blanket and sheet and even on the slats of her crib. (Note to self: a white crib would have been much better than dark cherry wood. Get the picture?) So then we go through the decontamination routine. And she's grinning the whole time!! It's gotten to the point that I don't even mind urine-soaked sheets! That's a time for a sigh of relief!
She can free herself from almost any clothing. We thought we had it solved with a sleeper with the little "safety snap" over the zipper thing, but she has broken through that! Now I think we are going to try just a onesie with some pajama pants over that and see how that works. I also thought that a pull-up might be a little more difficult to "go fishing" in, so I have those on my shopping list.
Any other suggestions???
Here's that cute face!
