Keep going or back to nappies?(6 Posts)
My 2 yr 8 month old daughter has technically been out of nappies for 5 months now with mixed success. She initially seemed to get it very quickly with very few accidents in the early days and even managing a wedding, and mini holiday without accidents. Since Aug she started moving into a new room at nursery, had a chest infection then a uti and me and husband are now in the process of separating. We're now 3 months into what I thought was a major potty training regression, however it's been so long now that it's difficult to know whether it us a regression or just that she wasn't quite ready.
We have several days in a row with (almost) 100% success followed by several days of almost 100% accidents. At first I maintained a relaxed "never mind this phase will pass " attitude however I'm finding this increasingly more stressful and I'm sure she's picking up on my stress which won't be helping. Things seem to be getting worse as the months go by and I absolutely dread go out due to the risk of accidents. So far I've avoided going back to nappies at times it's gone so well and i feel we'll going back to square one. However I'm wondering if I'm doing more harm than good in the long run.
Has anybody been through similar and what did you do? X
It sounds like she’s got a lot of changes happening in her life. There’s no harm in putting her in pull-ups so if she makes it it’s great and if she doesn’t then it’s no big deal. Save the stress for both of you.
Just to let you know this is one of three posts on Mumsnet which have been copied and pasted on to Netmums, all by the same Netmums op, and so I’ve reported to both Mumsnet and Netmums.
The others are about baby boxes and breathing monitors, which had been posted on Mumsnet by me, and opinions on the name Penelope.
Thanks ThomasRichard, I've decided to go for pull ups for a few weeks and see how we go. X
Papergirl, do you mean that someone is copying posts from here onto netnums? Thats really strange, thanks for letting me know. How did you find out? X
Yes, bloody cheek, isn’t it?!
I don’t go on Netmums much, but have a daily email from them and one of the threads featured on that was strangely familiar when I clicked on it - it was my own, word for word, lifted from Mumsnet.
So I searched to see what else that poster - “Sarah” - had put on to Netmums, and found two other threads, which had both been lifted from Mumsnet too.
At first I just assumed someone had thought “oh, that’s a good question, I’ll see what advice is given over on Netmums.” But then when I found three posts copied I wondered why someone would be interested in baby boxes and monitors for a newborn, nappy problems with a toddler and opinions on a baby name all at the same time?
Mumsnet say there is nothing they can do, but I havent heard from Netmums yet.
