Is there anyway to stop my toddler undoing aplix nappies?

Postby sweetiepups » Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:25 pm

Just wondered if anyone has found a cure to this problem.

DS is undoing the aplix/velcro on his nappies now that he is toddling around. Even under his clothes, he just reaches down and rips them off. Its driving me :wtf: :drama: :gaah:

I am gradually swapping my stash over to poppers, which he doesn't rip off (yet).

Gaffa tape? :lookround: :lol:

I never found a cure which is why our stash consisted only of poppered nappies.

Not really, my 2 yr old doesn't undo the velcro anymore, he's too busy clearing the book shelves/cd racks/pan cupboard. :giggle:
Seriously, its a phase they go through, i never got rid of my aplix pockets, he grew out of that phase pretty quickly and the aplix pockets are ideal for nursery.

Hoping it is just a phase then :thumbsup:

I have a stash that I love and it hurts to swap them all over to poppers.

Although DS seems to be able to fit in undoing his whilst clearing the book shelves/cd racks/pan cupboard. :giggle:
