DH and I are stuck. He wants to ease her into it instead of just putting her in regular undies (except at night). I don't want to confuse her by going back and forth.
I absolutely REFUSE to buy pull-ups, or the like, because they're expensive and I don't think it lets them recognize the feeling of being wet and relating to the feeling of peeing and therefore the feeling before they pee/poop, not to mention the fact that they are really just big diapers. But he wants them just to avoid mess (in my opinion that just = lazy).
We bought the more expensive thicker "training" undies as kind of a happy medium. But I'm just wondering if you girls have any ideas about 'easing' her into using the potty. I'm willing to go the rout of just letting her run around naked-ish at home and put her on it when she starts to go as well as every 30 min. But just for him I'd like maybe a few other ideas for a happy medium.
i told her a few months ago, no more diapers :) i let her run around naked and pottied her every 30-60 minutes, or when she showed signs of having to go. it was amazing how quickly she caught on and i wished i would have started this sooner. she wears panties now and rarely has accidents (she had a few recently when she was sick). after about a month, she started waking up dry. we haven't used diapers for nighttime or naps for almost a month. she just recently turned 26 months old.
