Hi everyone, I haven't been on here in a while but have an issue I'm wondering if anyone can help with. My son will turn 2 next month. For the past month or so, he has gotten really good at using the potty at home. Sometimes he uses a potty chair, and sometimes he requests that I help him sit on the regular toilet (which he seems to find more fun). We still put him in a cloth diaper at night but it is often dry in the morning. During the day, when we're home I just let him run around without pants. I've tried pants with no underwear, and also regular underwear. He has accidents in them. But almost no accidents (maybe one per week) when naked. I consistently act really happy when he uses the potty, which seems to work well. When we go out and about I've been putting (disposable) Pull-ups on him. He sometimes asks to use the potty (or I ask him if he wants to) and I will take him to the nearest bathroom, but sometimes he just goes in the Pull-ups. I feel kind of guilty about the environmental factor of the Pull-ups, but often we're in the car for a long time and I don't want to have dirty cloth diapers in a wet bag, my experience with that when I tried it in the past was that it was pretty gross.
The two main issues seem to be: 1) he treats anything he's wearing like a diaper, and 2) he is a bit more hesitant to poop in the potty (though he sometimes does it), and I suspect he waits until I put the Pull-ups on him, because he poops in the Pull-ups almost every day.
Does anyone have suggestions for how I can get him to understand the concept of underwear? Thanks in advance :)
