My daughter used the potty well at 1yr. Now she's just turned 2 and cries when I even say the word. I can't stand wasting so many diapers. We've been using disposables, but now I'm at the end of my rope and am thinking about cloth. I'm just worried she will start witholding. And if I do choose cloth what kind. There are so many choices. Diapers or training pants? If anyone has experience or advice to share I'd be grateful.


Thanks for listening!

It's kind of late to invest in diapers but I think cloth trainers would be good for your daughter. it really helps when they feel uncomfortable when they 'go' and want to avoid it. With my oldest son I used disposable pull ups and he knew he could just pee in them. good luck :)
