Use footies pajamas and put it on backwards so the zipper is on her back.

Take her to her doctor to discuss the issue could be something more going on with that.

Have you tried snapping the onesie over her pants so she can’t get the pants off? It may look funny but unless she can unsnap the onesie it’ll keep her from getting into her diaper.

Make her wash her hands immediately after it happens. This helped us because having to hand wash ruined the fun!

Get her some play doh. It may be a sensory thing and she likes the way it feels in her hands. I would look into getting her a couple of things like that to meet that need and express to her how yucky and dangerous it is to play with poop and instead let’s play with this fun stuff. You could even make cloud doh with her…pinterest!!! Has lots if great ideas to keep those little hands busy doing something more productive. And just keep reinforcing that it is not okay. She is old enough to go to the corner for a minute too when she does it. I suggest establishing a time out tone now so that way she understands with a warming from your tone that what she’s doing something not okay. Almost 2 year olds are smarter than we realize…and sometimes just distracting them with something that is safe is whats needed most. Stimulate her need for something squishy in her hands. Jello, play doh, cooked noodles, water beads, sand, paint…lots of stuff could satisfy her.

My oldest daughter did this and nothing I tried made her stop. So during her next checkup I brought it up with her doctor. Her doctor told me to give her a cold shower after she does it…she literally never did it again after that!

You should be changing her right away so this doesn’t happen it’s does happen but if it’s constant this is a parenting issue not the child she probably wants it off her because she’s uncomfy and doesn’t realize it’s gross and messy ,either you can smell she went or you should know she’s going if she’s hiding definitely needs to be watching her more it’s not her fault

Watch her better and change her as soon as she gets done going poop. Don’t let her sit in it.

Smack that hand tell her its nasty and could get her sick

My daughter did this, she painted her room in it. I cleaned it up the 1st too times, the 3rd time I made her help clean it and she never done it again. I also took her favorite town and we pottytrained. They ade use to it in their diaper so they don’t think its gross anymore. For my daughter, she was ready to train and trained pretty quickly.
