We have been potty training DS 2.3 for 2 weeks and initially had great results. He loves using the potty and if he is playing in the house bare bum will happily take himself off to the potty without hesitation and is really proud of results and gets lots of praise. However, if I put him in cotton pants he immediately reverts. Today I changed his cotton pants 10 times!! He screams if I try to put trousers on him too unless we're going out. He understands that he has to keep his pants dry and knows he has to ask for help taking them down but he will never ask or say he needs potty. He has favourite thomas/fireman sam pants but it makes no difference. Is he just being really independent stubborn about asking for help or is he confused? He uses pull ups at nursery 2 mornings a week and is happy to use the potty there. They are supportive and happy for him to come in with just pants next week but I am worried about the number of accidents they will have to deal with.
I am just cruising the potty training section of MN as i think it is looming with my DS.
I have heard about little terry pants that have a polythene/plastic side so that when the kids pee it holds it against there skin. Theory being they will hate being wet/dirty, but it will also help save some clothes changes???
