Hello. We're not there yet, but my 2 year old is currently in size 6 diapers. I noticed the other night that they are starting to leave red marks on her thighs. She's tall (abt 3 feet at her last appointment) and about 35lbs. We have her in 3/4T training pants (7th gen pull ups) during the day and diapers at night for the most part. I suppose I can always just keep her in the training pants but I'm wondering if there's a way to get her more interested in the potty. Or what other parent's have done.
We have had a little potty in the bathroom since she was about 1 and she does see me use the toilet so she knows what they are for and she will occasionally sit on her little potty. And she can take down/pull up her pants & diaper/pull ups. But other than that she really has no interest. She doesn't tell us when she's pooped and she doesn't seem bothered by it. Same with pee. We notice it before she does.
So any BTDT mamas have any advice? I'm due with #2 around March so I don't think now is really the best time to be approaching this, but I don't know that we're going to have another choice. Her growth has slowed down quite a bit since the summer, but with the new baby and everything else, we'd like to be a little prepared since it's bound to be a hectic then.
Children change a lot as they grow taller. My son had this issue as well, and now has gotten taller. We are still in 6's...barely. He is 45 pounds.
However, cloth isn't a bad option. Toddle-ease are at the bottom of this page https://usshop.motherease.com/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=8&cat=Sandy%27s%99+Diaper and work well with these http://www.nickisdiapers.com/bummis-whisper-pant-diaper-cover.html over the top (he has both Large and XL, and both still fit well, the rise is a smidge short on the larges, but they are fine otherwise) and we also have these http://www.nickisdiapers.com/stacinator-so-simple-diaper-cover.html in size Toddler and love them (harder for dad to figure out, though).
I have liners for the toddle-ease as well.
Sometimes toddle-ease can be found used on spots corner or diaperswappers. they've held up well for us.

Could you look into cloth? Might give you some more options. I wouldn't push the potty until she's showing sighs of being ready.
