Underwear, really?

Our son’s love of underwear didn’t last. At the end of the day, he was already asking for his diaper back. I suspect he’s just lazy and found that sitting on the potty every 30 minutes was just too much work – and too much of a distraction from his play. So he started peeing in his training pants. The pants are made to hold one small pee, so it wasn’t different enough from his diaper to make our boy overly uncomfortable.

We figured that we didn’t have enough training pants to change him with every pee, so we went back to diapers. We’ll get him some real underwear soon, and then when the pee runs down his legs maybe he’ll get it. That remains to be seen. But on the bright side, so far, he has continued pooing in the potty. As much as I love cloth diapers, I have to say that I don’t miss cleaning poopy ones. Just this little change makes a huge difference.

So for now I’ll accept the partial potty training and count myself lucky. After all, he’s not quite two and a half, yet. I know that a lot of kids potty train earlier, but then a lot of them (especially boys) potty train much later, too. So I’m taking it in strides. I have so little time for my family these day’s, it’s just not worth the fight!

    Oh well, at least it is a start! Yeah, cloth diapers and poop= not so much fun. :)

    At least, though, it stays in the diaper. When we used disposables on trips, we always seemed to have accidents. I’d rather deal with poopy cloth diapers than poopy clothing!
