My toddler wants to wear Sposies! :-(

I CD part-time. So i have my stash of cloth and a small pile of sposies sitting next to each other in the diaper basket. My son who is 25 months now tends to pick out sposies more often than CDs when i give him a choice. He's at an age where i want to encourage him to start making decisions for himself but i would rather him wear CDs than sposies. What should i do? Should i just hide the sposies?

Thanks!

I would put them out of sight. Are you buying ones with characters on them? Maybe get some plain ones, that aren't as exciting.

How about offering him the choice of two different cloth diapers. That way he is still getting a choice about what he wears but he's in cloth diapers.

He actually has a whole basket full of cloth diapers for him to choose from. Maybe i'm giving him too much choice as far as they are concerned. The sposies are pampers so they have sesame characters, but he doesn't show any interest in the actual print on the diapers.

I wonder what the reason could be for him to choose the disposables...

I'm sure the reason is that there are to many cloth choices so hes taking the disposibles because there is more of the same choice, kwim? I would pick 2 cloth and let him choose that way

I would probably hide the sposies. Especially if you CD for health/environmental reasons as well - in that case it's a call for his health and it's a choice you're making for him, KWIM? I would probably put them out of sight and give him plenty of CDs to choose from. He's still getting his choice, and you still get to use your CDs.
Maybe he's wearing them because everyone else does? LOL, not like peer pressure, just because it seems like that's what people in general put on kids. Or maybe he thinks the CDs are bulky? I dunno - but if he doesn't seem to mind too much I'd probably just store the sposies somewhere more sneeky.

DD would do the same given the chance. Its because of the wetness factor. Sposies don't really feel wet, but of course the cloth do, sounds like your DC MAYBE CLOSE TO POtty learning. sorry bout the caps I am nak and she is kicking like crazy...lol

Don't feel sad about it; before my 3 year old potty-learned, she preferred sposies over cloth. I think it was the bulk of the cloth (her stash was premium prefolds) that made it more uncomfortable with her. And maybe the wet feeling, too. You could try hiding the sposies. I like the idea of giving him a choice between 2 cloth dipes.
