2 Year Old and Traveling Turds...


Ds, my adorable, lovely, and incredibly adept two and a half year old has taken to removing his diaper...loaded...and travelling about the house.

We spent a week attempting to potty train, with only VERY limited success. He simply is not interested, most of the time.

I am beside myself. My girls did not do this. They removed their diapers from time to time, but not dirty ones. Somehow I managed to escape this with them.

We have tried...pinning tightly, sposie diaper backwards, onesies over diaper/cover (but onesies don't fit him as he wears a 3t and is VERY long in the torso), diaper cover over sposie, etc. Overalls don't fit him properly due to his torso length plus he freaks out in them (hates the straps).

He goes to morning preschool and they will not do prefolds/pins there. Everything else he can remove, even snaps. And his clothes. He is a little Houdini.

I thought cleaning for Passover would be bad b/c he abducts cheerios and wanders around with them (even though I have a strict no-food-outside-the-kitchen rule) but if I am cleaning and find petrified turds I might have to quit altogether.

*hugs* (If it makes you feel any better, dd pulled of her diaper during naptime yesterday and, umm, painted with it ) The only thing that she can't get off is shorties/longies that have a drawstring and are double-knotted. I just washed hers and now she can wear them again, so hopefully no more Poo Picasso episodes....
