My son (3) has been potty trained for several months, doing great until a month or so ago. He now wets his pants a little before making it to the potty. Not every time, but more often than not. He starts preschool in 2 weeks, and I'm not sure what to do. Is there an alternative to pull-ups? I really don't want to put him in a huge diaper for little leaks. Do I just send he with several changes of clothes? Can I fix this problem before he starts!?
Also, I'm trying to figure out why this is happening. My daughter, at 25 months, went from diapers to underwear in a week and never looked back. Did the same with my son, took him a little longer to get it down than her, but had it. Only difference is, the MIL watches him twice a week (sometimes more) all day, and puts him in pull-up while at her house (he does use the potty for her but "just incase" he leaks or doesn't make it, she doesn't have to "deal" with the mess.) I'm wondering if this is sabotaging my potty training method (he wears underwear at home, on outings and for bed - I'd rather wash clothes than "deal" with diapers). Does wearing a pull-up prevent him from telling he's wet? Do you think it'd be better for him to wet his underwear and pants so he can learn? or do you think he's just not paying attention to his body and leaks a little before he really has to go? Any tips on ways to make him get to the potty before he "leaks"?
