If its not one thing, its another. Well, this time we’re having TWO different diaper issues.
Issue #1: Naptime. Porter has begun to think its quite amusing to dink around in his crib at naptime, throw all his animals out, take off his pants and diaper. I can usually tell when this happens as he’ll become extremely loud, banging on the crib, yelling and running in the crib. Yes, maniac indeed. Usually I just go back in and he asks for his diaper and pants, which I put back on, and that is the end. Well, yesterday he took off his stuff twice. So, today this was my solution:
Yes, that is electrical tape on his diaper. We didn’t have duct tape. Yes, I made him stand there and post for me. Poor kid. Well, he is sleeping finally and his diaper is STILL on.
Issue #2: Bedtime. For the last oh, 6 months or so (maybe more, maybe less) we’ve had problems with Porter leaking through diapers at night. For awhile I summed it up to us giving him a cup of water in bed, and once we quit that *most* of the leaked through diapers stopped.
During the day we use cheap diapers- Luvs or Target Brand. At night we were using Huggies, which worked fine up until a few weeks ago. We stopped the night water, and he was still waking up with soaked pj’s in the morning.
So, we tried Pampers and those were working fine. Up until this week. Three days in a row he’s woken up at 5:30-6:30am yelling "Mooo-mmeeeeeeyy! Mommy! Moooo-mmmeeeeeyy! Messy! Messy Mommy!"
He doesn’t get water at night. He doesn’t drink an excessive amount of liquid before bed. Last night we had dinner at 6, he drank a cup of milk. He went to bed at 7. I can’t imagine stopping his liquids BEFORE dinner (granted, most of the time we try to have dinner at 5/5:30 but that doesn’t always happen).
So, any suggestions?!? I’m at a loss, and short of waking him up before we go to bed to change his diaper (bleh!) I don’t know what to do!
