  • If they are in the age group that you posted in, my answer is never, unless they are special needs. A child that age should be going to the bathroom when they need to.

    If they are special needs, you can just go to the bathroom and check or ask several times on a road trip if they need to go.

  • If they poop, then they poop. I can usually smell it. Just bring along some wipes, a couple of fresh diapers/pulls-ups and a change of pants (if needed).

    This. My kids never wore pullups, period. They were all potty trained well before they were 5, too.

  • Why don't you stop being judgemental. She may have asked the question in the wrong category.

  • Ages 5 to 8 pooping in a Pull Up? Not acceptable unless the child has a mental or medical problem.
