Persevere or back to nappies?

Pullups can be really confusing for little ones as they are not nappies but do not feel like pants. Can you stay at home and go cold turkey in pants to see how that goes?

Carry on and go cold turkey with pull-ups. Only use them for sleeps otherwise they get confused. It takes time before they start asking for the potty and it's normal to have one step forward two steps backward. Rewards really help the process in my opinion. Chocolates, stickers, praise whatever gets it in the potty.

So after seemingly months of halfway house in pull-ups with some wees on potty, a sticker chart seemed to make a difference and we had 2 days, one accident. DD (2.5) didn't ask for potty at all but we seemed to be winning...until last night - when she weed every 30 mins in pants for about 2hrs before bed time! Advice please...carry on or back to pull ups, I'm ready to cry!!
