training ds1 (2.4), biggest obstacle seems to be dh who wants to put nappies on at first hurdle (lazy, impatient...). Am also suffering with hormonal craziness (mood swings? I'm on a fricken trampoline).
DS1 sits on potty and loves all the attention, I think it's the right time and have been following cod's plan (thank you), but am struggling with nap time. He won't make a deposit before he goes down for a nap, which means I keep waiting and re-setting the timer until he is really over-tired and it's useless to try putting him on the potty. So I put him down and he wets the bed 5 minutes later. Please help.
I put a nappy on mine when he's sleeping. I try and get him to go but forcing him is not going to make it happen. Can't you explain that he wears a nappy while sleeping? My ds 3.5 still wears a nappy at night. If he hasn't wet the nappy after 2 weeks while napping then I would get rid of it.
I've put care mat down. I just felt so bad today when I went to check on him and he had removed wet trousers and fallen to sleep!
Would it be better to put him naked/in pants on a care mat, or put pullups on him?
i reckon hes pretty young to be sleeping dry, personally. i say do the training but still put a nappy on him to sleep.
ds1 is now just 4 and he still has a nappy to sleep - but its mostly dry now and he is learning to get up to wee. certainly he seems to hold it or do it first, as testified by dry nappies in the morning (doesnt do naps in day)
He wears a nappy to bed at night, but I thought it might confuse him to have a nappy for naps? (Cod -- did I get it wrong, o wise one of the wees?)
I am fed up. He has done not. a singel. wee. in the pot. today.
DS insisted, despite my protests, on going out for a short walk with him (cooped up all day, yaddah yaddah) and sure 'nuff, ds1 just came in the door soaked.
Thanks chipbutty. We are trying putting a nappy on over his pants for naptime, and still working on training. Am going to give it till the end of the week to see how it goes; if we're getting nowhere, i'm going to put it on hold for a month or 2.
Thanks fo and qk. Finally ventured out today and put him in pull-ups, he didn't ask for the loo so I didn't mention it till we got home, and then he made 2 deposits, but he asked for the loo the 2nd time, so we might be getting somewhere.
