So Jude has a new habit. A kind of gross habit. He likes to stick his hand down his pants. This includes the diaper:( It was kind of funny at first, but now it is causing some problems. When he goes to sleep one hand is always down his pants and he likes to sleep on his stomach so you can guess what happens. Yep, he soaks his sheets and himself. One night I woke up to him crying and he was soaked, but his diaper was almost completely dry. It also causes the front of his diaper to fold in and the velcro tabs to rub up against his skin causing irritation and rash. When he's awake I can get after him about it, but when he's sleeping there's not much I can do. As soon as I lay him down, in goes the hand. I think it's a comfort thing. Some kids have blankies, mine sticks his hand down his pants. When he's awake and I catch him doing it I smack his hand and he stops, but 5 minutes later, I'll catch him doing it again. I'm not sure what to do to get him to stop. I thought about just putting onesies on him all the time so he can't, but I'm having trouble finding onesies in 12m size. Any ideas?

Jude is a very light sleeper.......or so I thought. In the middle of the night last night the smoke alarms all went off, including the one in Jude's room. It turns out the humidifier in his room set it off. John said that when he walked in the room it was like entering the Amazon Rainforest:) Anyway, they were going off for a few minutes before John was able to get them to stop. And there was Jude sleeping away, not even stirring. What I don't understand is how this same little boy wakes up if he hears the door creak, or when Ruby enters the room and the tag on her collar starts jingling.
