Another stripping toddler question

MY nearly 2yr old dd has worked out how to take all her clothes off.

Not a problem really in the daytime, she can run about the house naked all she likes, esp now she's got the hang of asking for the potty.

But she's started stripping in bed at night. She's quite subtle about it, TBH I wouldn't have even realised last night but for the giggles. 2nd time, after I'd redressed her and put her back to bed, she obviously undressed herself right away then fell asleep naked. I only realised when I checked on her and saw the clothes by the side of the bed. I had to get a nappy on her without waking her up and let me tell you, I think after that delicate manoeuver I should try out as a brain surgeon.

She's going down in a vest (the type with crotch poppers) and a nappy, and then houdini like, half an hour later she's completely naked.

The poppers are still done up so I think she's wriggling out by pulling the vest down.

I've tried explaining to her why she needs to sleep with a nappy on (shes really not old enough to stay dry at night) and I've tried layering her up with clothes. No joy.

Any ideas? I don't know what to dooooooo.....

My SIL used to put all-in-1s on her DS, back to front so he couldn't undo it!

have you got an old babygro that can be cut if so cut sleeves short and feet off to make it into shorts and then put it on backwards you can lower the neck line also so not tight around neck

wont look pretty may do the trick though

Not in her current size.

I wonder what I can find on ebay.

What about those bodysuits with popper necks? Does anyone know where you can buy those?
