AIBU using terry squares on my almost 3 yr old ?

He's nowhere near dry and after trying everything he's now in terries, they work well and save us a fortune but are a pain to put on.

He's terrified the moment he sees me folding a terry nappy and refuses to cooperate :-(

Anyone else used them at 3 yrs ?

Why is he so afraid of the Terry squares?

I used them from birth, but my DCs didn't potty train until 3.5 so were both in them at three. What doesn't he like? My DD liked to help me fold them at that age.

I'm exaggerating a bit when I say he's terrified but he doesn't like having them changed.

I think it's just all the extra fuss he doesn't like, having to lie down while fold and pin them.

They do work well so I'd really prefer to use them till he's dry if I can :-)

My DD at 8 months screams down the house when I change her diapers. No reason, she just hates the fuss and wants to play/eat/whatever I dared to delay her from doing. hmm

Google nappy grippers. Little bungee type things that replace the pins. Much less stress

Called nappy nippas

YY - Nappi Nippas, they're called. Much less fuss than pins. Also, can you fold and stack them ready to go rather than folding when he's ready for a change?

Nappy changing a non-compliant toddler is a fucking nightmare.

Which fold? You get quicker at it, especially with nappi nippas. I don't think it takes me any longer than a disposable now, but I'm on my third DC and for two years we had two in terries.

Why would it be unreasonable?

Thanks for the correctiongrin

It's been 20 years since I needed them

Thanks, looks like I'll give nippas another try next time I'm in town :-)
