Little boy-dresses

I just need advice on how to handle my little boy, he is 30 months old, and the past four months he is addiment to wear his sister''s(seven) dresses. I know he is still young but its getting so out of control that he cries when I put all the dresses away and refuse to take the dresses off at night, I know I might sound silly, but I dont know if I should let him be, or put a end to it, because I dont know if its just a phase and if, how long is it goin to last and yes basically I need to know how to handle the situation please?

Let your son continue to wear his sister's clothes at this stage.This behaviour is not uncommon at this age. Try not to say anything about it, but you can continue to try to interest him in boy's clothes appropriate for his age.In most cases this is a passing phase,although one cannot be completely sure about this.
