Does anyone else have a 2 yr old girl who insists on being naked Is it a stage? How do I deal with it? Is it just a stage?

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • Who wouldn’t love to be naked whenever they wanted…especially in this heat (QLD) hehe
    In all seriousness though, I think its a stage. Hopefully she grows out of it.



  • Think it’s a stage least she got over it by kindy



  • Possibly a stage or she may have sensory issues. Worth getting checked out but I wouldn’t be concerned about it.



  • not sure my little one loves clothes but not socks



  • It’s also a boy thing and deffinately just a stage,



  • It is a stage, my youngest did that anywhere anytime to a point I had to watch him closely while in public places till he was 4 yrs old. The preschool also had problems with him stripping down & asked me how to keep clothes & shoes on him, I said good luck with that. At 18 he still wanders around the house in his undies but at least he has them on lol.
    If it is at home then it is not such a problem but when at friends places she needs to at least keep her undies on, a reward system might help so you can remind her each time she does it she loses points on that star chart. Give her choices about what she wants to earn points towards, can be a $5 toy so it doesn’t cost you a fortune. Set a time limit that you think she can work with as their attention span is still quite short at 2, work out how many points for staying dressed & how many she loses. If she can see something will come from it then you might have a chance at keeping her clothed.



  • oh no.. i hope it is a stage though :(



  • there are some good comments here



  • You know you are a Mum when you chase a naked child through Kmart. I never did find the nappy….



  • How is she going now?



  • Yup, just a stage unfortunately!



  • Hopefully it changes soon :)



  • Mine is not yet two and loves to take her pants off, tries to get her nappy off and seems very happy with her efforts at removing clothing! I hope it is just a stage



  • how did it turn out?



  • Hopefully it is just a stage that she will grow out of.
