Recently my just over 2 year old boy has decided that he doesn't want to wear a diaper. Some days aren't too bad but other days he refuses to put his diaper on. I am taking this as a sign to slowly begin and introduce potty training?
He has been sitting on the potty for a while now just as part of games and fun times but we have now let him use a toddler potty seat on top of our 'big boy' toilet and he does go there when we sit him on it.
I tried out using a normal big boy underwear and for the first couple of days in the mornings he would do okay but I would have to ask him every 30 mins if he had to go potty. If I don't ask he won't tell me and will just pee on himself.
Is there any advice anyone can give to me? He can tell me that he has gone to pee in his pants only after he has done it.
Also any votes on whether I should invest in some 'training pants' where there is a thin liner to absorb some of the accidents or cloth diapers vs the disposal diapers so I can save $$ in the long run?
Any tips would help! I know its not an overnight process but any ideas and tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated!!
