My 23 month old boy has started to take his nappie off at night for a week or so now. Me or daddy will put a new one on him during the night if we have herd him but he will take it off again by morning. He does not cry during the night he takes it off and goes to sleep !! During the day he is happy to wear a nappie. He will tell me sometimes he is weeing and has know for sometime when he is about to poo. As this is my only child its all new to me - should i be potty training even though he is only 23months old?? Thanks

my 2.1 year old has been doing this

we tried putting him back in babygros but he can also unbutton those

not sure what to do - we have tried and given up on potty training so not sure it is to do with that

i have NO advice but hopefully someone else will grin

Try switching to pull ups. My dd2 likes to to take her nappy off- purely because she likes the sound of pulling at the sticky tab on and off. We switched to pull ups and it seems to have solved the problem- also handy if you are going to attempt to potty train. 23months is quite young to potty train- but it has been done- you could give it a trial or just encourage sitting on the potty and getting used it it

He could be ready for potty training, there's no harm in trying. My dd1 was trained at 23 months, and her sister at 19 months.

my charge did this at the same age...

we resorted to pampers easy up pants (which i took several weeks beforehe couldget them off)

also combined with a poppered vest on the wrong way round. I appreiate in this weather you might not want a vest on too though

a light weight grobag might help too!

and we also put his popepred baby grows on back to front

I will also go and read the post's on best ways to potty train a 23 month old if i can find any...Any ideas where i start with the potty training? Thanks for the advise
