The other night I checked on Hazel and found her curled up completely unclad,with all her bedding soaked. We’d already known she loved removing her pajamas, so removing her diaper was the next logical skill progression–but I’d hoped she wouldn’t be so talented.
This is my attempt to prevent a repeat incident:
I put a keychain ring through the hole at the top of her zipper pull, stitched down one side of a piece of ribbon, sewed a button hole in the other end of the ribbon, and sewed a button on the other side of the zipper. (My first plan was to have the ribbon running straight across, but that made the zipper pull poke out too much. Having it diagonal does mean she can open the zipper a couple of inches, but not enough to get the pajamas off–I hope.)
Mabel pointed out that if this works I’ll have to do it to all Hazel’s pjs. Or maybe Hazel will just have to wear this one pair until she learns to put her diaper and pajamas back on.
