Let me know when you figure this out :joy: my son’s 3 and is still in the naked stage :joy::joy: he gets dressed when we have to go out and as soon as we are home he strips off completely butt naked. Doesn’t matter what the weather is like or if he has got a cold. Always naked. It must be boys :joy::joy:

My son is ALWAYS naked…he has not liked clothes since the day he was born. He is almost 5 and as long as we are home, he is in only underwear. He is hot natured but kids aren’t as fragile as people think. As long as it isn’t 30 degrees in your house he will be fine, see if you can get him to at least keep socks or slippers on.

My son is 6 and half and as soon as he gets home from school… or anywhere really lol… off comes the pants. Or he will run around in his undies and socks. If he is cold he will put clothes on or ask for help. Unless it’s really bothering you I dont think it’s a big issue. I dont really have suggestions for ya though because I haven’t figured it out yet either! :joy:

Some kids just like to be free​:joy::joy: my daughter hated footed pajamas so that never worked for us. Good luck

I have 3 boys oldest is autistic and hates clothes so of course the other two are usually running around in undies/diaper. make sure the house is a good temp and tell ppl to call before they come over :slight_smile: life is too short to worry about clothes in your own home

It’s just a phase, my daughter did it too. And being cold will not make him become more sick. Hopefully doesn’t last to long

My aunt used to put sleepers one her son when he would get naked during the night. She would fasten the zipper to the top with a diaper pin, so It was harder to get off.

I don’t know. I just didn’t give my son the option to run around naked. I always just made him wear clothes… If he took them off I put them back on and told him no. After a few days of that he realized it wasn’t an option and stopped taking them off…

I wouldn’t worry my boy 4 runs around no pants I just thank the lord for less laundry :joy::joy::joy:

I agree on this cold weather, one piece on backwards.

Use a sleeper or a onesie

Mines 8 and still the first thing he does when he gets home is strips down to underwear. One piece PJ’s (footless) on backwards. I just trust that when he’s cold he’ll put clothes back on or bring them to me to help.

My 2 yr old is always in just a diaper. They don’t get sick from being cold. They get sick from germs. If you’re worried about him getting chilly then just turn the heat up a little more.

Put on a onsiese or try potty training him

I have grandsons (2 teens n 10 yr old) that come in their clothes being tossed here and there, an hour later they are in their under pants, sitting at the computers talking, yelling and laughing, game time. and the 3 year old girl she does the same, except she isn’t at the computer. She runs thru the house, narrowly missing the stairs learned thru tumbling down the stairs.

Duct tape. :joy: good luck! Mine is 7 and still runs around in his undies every chance he gets

Every kid does it at some point

thank God I’m not the only one my three-year-old daughter runs around naked all the freaking time.

My mom had the same problem with my brother …so she went and bought him several outfits (Shirts and pants) that buttoned up the back. With me, I took my daughter to the store and let her pick out two out fits that she promised to wear. If at any time she took them we put them up where she could see the but was not allowed to wear them for a week until she could be trusted not to undress again (I guess with a little girl who likes to dress in what she thinks is "pretty’ it was a good deterrent.)Good luck mom.

He’s aware of his comfort zone

Does he know how to unbutton the onsies too? Mine can’t so he just wears those.

My niece is almost 3 and she does the same thing ! Even when she sleeps i believe. She takes her panta off and won’t keep her shoes or socks on. We worry about the same thing… I hope they do grow out of it because it’s a constant thing.

Let him be free lol. He will be fine. As long as it isn’t cold in the house, he should stay warm enough.

I saw where a lady suggested you get one size larger of the sleepers and put them on backwards. One size larger will allow you to rotate the feet around to fit the right way. :man_shrugging: Worth a try!

It’s a battle you will not win.

Let’s see now…
Exactly which one of you are the parent& and the biggest?

Put a safety pin with the cap through the zipper of a onesie

Just keep putting them back on and talk to him, it’s not ok! He’ll get it and grow out of it!!

1 piece. Turn them at ancles and zip backwards

Maybe get some creepers? Mine could never figure out the buttons.

It is a thing he is going through he will stop and the cold it is a virus he will get over that to and at night just put extra blanks on him and he is a Cooper he is always hot so Ashley don’t worry

Sometimes when kids keep taking off their clothing and shoes…, it may be an indication that he might have a reaction or a slight allergy to milk products… Does he have a lot of colds?? it could be the reaction in action… for 1 week, hold off on the milk…see if this behavior changes and that cold clears up… you then will know if …it is the milk and or the antibiotics they add to it .good luck.
