Ok, DS is in pants - yikes - but what about his nap? Do I put him back in a nappy?

DS is 2.10 and we've put him in pants to get potty training going. He has done the odd wee and poo in the potty but also has done these in his pants. We went out to playgroup today, and despite having juice and being taken to the potty a number of times (when he yelled 'I don't want to go potty') and refusing to do either, he then wet himself and I had to change his clothes. Anyway, I know he'll still be in a nappy at night for a long time to come, but what about his lunchtime nap - should I risk it and leave the pants on or put a nappy on for it?

I personally would keep nappy on and just monitor the situation for a week or two. If he is dry at naptime then you will have your answer.

If you do decide to put him down for a nap in pants, then perhaps use a waterproof bottom sheet under the normal sheet. I got one from Mothercare. You will probably have to buy one eventually anyway for night times.

will he not get confused about having pants on one minute and a nappy the next?

You asked if he will get confused.

It depends whether you go with the plan "pants for daytime and nappies at night"

OR "pants when awake and nappies when asleep"

We did the second and it worked for us.
