Help! 1 Year Old Has Decreased His Naps & I Can't Get Anything Done!

My problem is that for the last few weeks, as soon as I get in the shower he pulls on the "floor" of the pack & play so that it detaches, folds it up, and then stands in the "hole" made by the soft area below the "floor". I leave the...
