Pees in her crib, HELP PLEASE

I have a 25 month old daughter. We have been working on potty training for some time and she has recently got the basic idea. That is not the problem though. The problem is that she will strip naked in her crib take off her freshly cleaned diaper in order to pee in the bed. Then she has no problem laying down and sleeping completely naked, possibly having another accident while napping. She only seems to do this at nap time. We tried puttting her in jamies at nap time and some days that works but not most days. We have tried onsies but she miraculessly can get the diaper from under her onesie withoiut getting it off or unsnapped. Additionally she can litterally come straight off the potty, actually going, and then straight to bed in a pull up or a diaper. She will then strip within seconds, actually can't believe how fast she can do it, then pee again. Literally did it today within 2-3 minutes of getting off the potty.

kaseyms, Hi and welcome to the Toilet Teaching board.

Do you have a little potty that you could put in your DD's room when she takes a nap, and put the mattress on the floor so she has easy access to the potty? Since she is going to the potty right before laying down, she may be using this as a stalling factor to taking a nap,as she gets more time, and attention since she needs to be cleaned up and the sheets changed. Have you tried putting her onesie on backward, it is much harder to take off, or putting her in pj's that zip up on backwards, much harder to take off. If she can't take anything off that should eliminate the mess in the crib to clean up. I hope that helps. Please keep us updated on your DD's progress.
