Cloth Diapering

PTing Qs

N jumped on the potty train this week, and he's been doing pretty well. Today he only had one accident (so far) when he pooped. He is very resistant to pooping on a potty, and so far he has managed to do it on the sly or when I've been nursing L and can't get him into the bathroom. I don't want to push too hard and turn it into a battle of wills, but I'm stumped about what to do. Should I just keep asking and let him decide when he's ready?

Also, when should I switch to underwear for naptime? He still normally takes a long nap and wets a lot, so I've been putting him in diapers for sleep times.

  • I don't know about the poop thing, but I started having her pee before her nap, and I waited for her to consistently wake up dry before switching to undies.

    We just started too! :-h I can't really help with the poo... When you clean up after he poos, does he watch you put it in the toilet? G1 has been watching me do that for a while, so he knows that poo goes in the toilet. We actually put him in undies for nap almost immediately. I bought some of the Gerber training pants, made sure he slept on something easy-ish to clean, and we talked about it a lot that morning "ok, you're wearing your undies for nap time. We don't pee in our undies, so as soon as you wake up, let mama know so we can go pee on the potty." Then I check the monitor constantly to try to catch him as soon as he wakes up. *Edit because autocorrect.

  • We stopped doing diapers at nap time when my daughter refused to wear one. I know this sounds insane but I swear my daughter had separation anxiety or something with poop. Once I say her down and explained that poop wanted to go in the potty and get flushed so it could go be with it's family, no more problems. Don't judge me.

    This made me lol. I love that she wanted the poop to be reunited.

    I assumed you mean Gerber. Ferber training pants sound like something where you only change their diaper a predetermined intervals so that they learn when to poop.

    Ha! I totally meant Gerber. In fact, I changed it to Gerber when autocorrect switched it. Clearly my autocorrect is more stubborn than I gave it credit for!

  • I agree with SAK. In my experience of one kid, if you make it a battle you end up with a regression and your kid stays in diapers until almost 4. :)

  • I'm late responding sorry! our pedi suggested getting glitter from the $ store and letting your child sprinkle glitter into the potty before pooping. It worked like magic for colton after about a week or so. I thought my pediatrician was insane for suggesting it, but it seriously worked! after a while he didn't need it anymore.

    So the glitter got him excited about sitting to poop? Did you only use it when you suspected he needed to poop or every time he went to the bathroom?

  • the pedi said to tell him the glitter makes it "safe" to poop. We used a child's potty and I would let him help me dump it into the big potty and he got to flush it. We only used it for pooping, not peeing.
