My Daughter Loves to Be Naked!

My daughter Morgan is 20 months and she recently started this habit of trying to take her clothes off. I come home from work and she is completely NAKED. I really dont know what to do because its getting worse. When she gets out the bath tub she will run away from me so i wont put clothes on her. How should i punish a 20 month old baby? I dont know what to do anymore. Please Help

is she potty trained?

in my opinion this isn't you shouldn't be punishing her for... i think it's normal. maybe you can just talk to her about how its ok to be naked inside your house but outside you have to wear clothes or something...
in fact. i think its kinda cute hahha.
good luck though

it's perfectly normal for a toddler to want to be naked. gabreil runs around the house naked all the time. i would not punish her, it might give her a bad feeling about her body. just let her run free in the house and let her know that outside you have to wear clothes.

its very normal. jayden finally just started asking me to put clothes on him if he was naked. he use to run around our house for hours naked but now hes changed and gets shy when people other than me see him naked. Its a phase and as funny as it is and frustrating sometimes Im sure it will pass as does everything else!

Heck, Matt's five years old and occasionally decides it's time to have a naked day. It's normal, kids are comfortable and happy in their naked state, I wish we all felt that way.

I think its kinda cute too SOMETIMES. It becomes embarrassing and uncomfortable when i have company. She isnt potty trained Completely she shows interest in it but when the time comes she backs away. Thats one of the reasons i dont like her to run around naked.

I definitely agree that a punishment isn't exactly the route you want to take.

I think this nude thing is a good opportunity for potty training, so take advantage of it. So, she can get her diapers off. Can she get training pants off? Maybe you can put the diapers on her backwards.

When you need her to be dressed try outfits with the snaps at the crotch. and Overalls. Those things are harder for a child to get loose from.

I'm with the others, not something that should be punished. I'm not sure if she'll understand a talk either, but it's worth a shot. It may be one of those things you just have to wait out. She'll eventually either grow out of it, or get to the point where she understands it's only okay in certain situations.
