Nighties vs. Pajamas

We have decided today that graduating Audrey to wearing nighties is a BAAAAD idea. Ben spent the better part of a half hour scrubbing her crib, mattress, WALLS!..... and throwing everything that was in her bed into the wash (except for her Tad which, because it can't go in the wash, went in the trash. :(
While Ben was doing that, I was hosing Audrey off in the bathtub. I just thank heaven that Audrey loves her baths because this would have been a real mess otherwise... literally.

Audrey has recently decided that if we wait even 5 minutes to get her up that she will take revenge on us and remove her diaper. It was cute (motherly eyeroll) when she was just peeing in her bed... but today it was something else. She thought it was funny, of course, and was jumping up and down on her bed, giggling.

It seems to be that nighties leave too much access to the diaper. Since Audrey has been suffering from a persistent case of diaper rash, getting those diapers off seems to be first priority for her. So, I think, for the foreseeable future, Audrey will have to stick to pajamas. If she decides that taking off both the bottoms and her diaper is too great a temptation, we may have to invest in several pairs of zippered pajamas and a pound of safety pins.

OHH the joys of parenting! Jacob did that too when he was her age and once when my mom was watching him she went to check on him taking a nap and was mooned with a dirty butt sticking up in the air and a dirty diaper behind the door! LOL. OH and potty training was no better it seeped through his underwear as he slid down the last few stairs on his behind! I was so furious scrubbing carpet!

Eeeyaaa...Joshua liked to pull of his clothes, but thankfully, he only took off his diaper once or twice. Now he just like to run around without underwear on. He is rather proud of himself and will show his naked bottom to anybody who happens to be around. Sigh...Poor little tad...Are you sure you couldn't have just rinsed it off?

Little girls look darling in nighties--so take a photo of her in her cute nightie and then padlock her in her jammies every night!!!!!!

Nighties are for grownups. :D

Been there, done that! Not fun, I know. We ended up resorting to the zippered pj's safety pinned at the top like you mentioned. It stalled the problems for a while, but eventually they work that one out as well if you aren't careful. Happy parenting! :)

We did the zippered jammies too. I'm so glad that's all "behind" us now. LOL
