Re: So frustrated with trainers - Help me get out of sposies!

I hate cleaning up a bunch of pee accidents, etc, so if it were me I would go back to diapers that are easy on/off (ie not pins or snappis). My DS1 didn't PL until he was about 3 1/2, and my DS2 is looking to be on the same schedule. He's 39 months, and will use the potty ALL DAY -- as long as he isn't wearing anything on his bottom half If he's in undies/diaper/trainers etc, he'll pee them. He can do EVERYTHING for PLing, except actually use the potty if he thinks he can pee his diaper/clothes. Something else just needs to "click" for him

I realize this is not an awesome answer but it's what I would do. All those accidents, to me, sounds like someone isn't 100% ready.

Not sure if this might work but this summer in anticipation of DD2 PL I had some toddler prefolds converted into side snapping trainers and plan to use those with dappi and old bummi nylon pull up pants over them. They are about 5$ or $6 for a center strip of PUL and really cute! Mamawearbabywear on etsy. She usually has in stock items but her shop is closed for a few days for a family visit. Dd2 is not interested so I just had more toddler prefolds converted into AIO's at Nanas bottoms but I'm ready when she is!

Sure here's the link but nothing is viewable since she is shut down for 5 days for a family visit. http://www.etsy.com/shop/MamaBearBabyWear

Re: So frustrated with trainers - Help me get out of sposies!

I use training pants (Gerber are ok, Hanna Andersson are the BEST!) covered with a Bummis pull on cover for out and about (trainers only at home). Usually holds a full pee, sometimes leaks a bit. I just keep a change of pants handy.
