When undressing a kid in overalls, only undo one strap

Chakolate shares a bit of wisdom I didn't figure out myself for years:

I thought this was one of those things everybody knew, until I saw a mom trying to refasten her tiny daughter's overalls. She had undone them for potty time. The thing is, when you undo overalls, whether you're two months or sixty years, you just undo one side, and slip the other side off the shoulder. They're easier to get refastened that way.

Or just don't put them in overalls while toilet learning. This will allow the child to get less frustraded and help her do it on her own!

Thats a great tip! I will use it next time I put overalls on my son.
