Potty Training 102

Many moons ago, I wrote about getting the potty chair to start potty training. I still love the potty chair, but the potty training isn't going so well. I think Monkey girl's just not ready yet. She'll be 2 and a half in a couple of weeks and we've tried to start potty training several times to no avail. The first couple of hours go well, until she has to go, then it's always in between the 10 minute intervals I've been taking her. I've tried pull-ups, big girl underwear, and training pants. After she goes, I ask her if she wants to try again or if she wants a diaper, and the response is always in favor of the diaper. We'll keep at it every couple of weeks, but just as with her speech progression, I'm going to have to accept that she'll do things in her own time.

  1. I have read that children that use cloth diapers tend to potty train faster because they feel the wet feeling more than a child in a disposable diaper does. I think it had something to do with the way the disposable diapers are designed to hold SO MUCH fluid that make it less uncomfortable when it's wet. Maybe trying a few cloth training pants might help speed things along?


I appreciate your feedback!
