Our first strategy was to duct-tape the diapers.
The next course of action was the "straight jacket". We took a pair of "fuzzy" sleeper pajamas, cut the feet off and put it on backwards (with the zipper in the back).

The straight jacket stopped Kaydence, but Kyndall could wriggle out of the neck hole in the PJ's. We would find the straight jacket, still completely zipped up, lying next to her.
Next we tried safety pinning the neck hole so that it was too small for her to wiggle out of....

This worked for a couple of weeks. Then Kyndall discovered that she could climb from her bed into Kaydence's bed and they could unzip each other. Once unzipped, they could slip off the straight jackets, remove their diapers and party on as before.
In desperation, I bought a sleep sack and put it backwards (zipped up the back) on Kyndall. This kept her jammies on and prevented her from climbing out since she couldn't spread her legs wide enough to climb over the bar on the crib. The only problem is that the sleep sacks they sell in the stores are all 0-6 months size, so it was a pretty tight fit, even for little Kyndall.The Sleep Sack
Fortunately, GG came to the rescue and designed a homemade sleep sack that was not quite as confining, but still did the trick!
In the mean time, we discovered something that made Kyndall not WANT to take off her jammies-----for Christmas the girls all got jammies with little ballerina skirts. They LOVE the skirts (they call them their tippy toes, tippy toes). If they wear them to bed, no one wants to take them off so.......NO MORE STRIPPING!!!
Unfortunately it only took a couple weeks for Kyndall (who we think might be related to Houdini) to figure out how to climb out of her crib even while wearing the sleep sack! The first few times it happened, we could not believe it. We had to hide outside the bedroom door and spy on her to figure out how she did it. (She leans over the crib railing, swings both legs over together, then shimmies down the other side)
At this point, I am ready to admit defeat---I am NOT smarter than a two-year-old! (Jayson, though, has a few more ideas. I don't know if they will work in the long run, but I am keeping my fingers crossed!!)Kyndall, wearing regular jammies, "straight jacket" and "tippy toes, tippy toes"---quite a fashion statement!
