DS is 2.25 and obviously giftedness is not known but he is rather sensitive and intense.
Recently I've begun putting cloth dipes aside as snaps and such are ripping from the pathetically abused fabric. I've made repairs many times and it's just not worth it any longer. I'm down enough dipes that I'm now washing dipes every day rather than every other or third day. I've even found myself using too many sposies.
DS has had several potty successes initiated by him but nothing consistent. We've tried cold turkey underwear and pants (esp while dipes are washing) but he just gets such a defeated look on his face and sometimes cries when he pees in his pants. I don't want to push too hard on this matter and cause ds harm but I also refuse to spend another $200 on new dipe items that may not be needed in what could be a short amount of time.
I am considering going the route of the underwear and pants as I already have a jump on that. I would have to buy more underwear and pants to get through the day and would still be laundering everyday although this laundry wouldn't require the rinsing that dipes do. I still come back to the emotionally sensitive and intense part of this and wonder what's best.
I'm hoping for some WWYD responses as I think this thing out.
