I've looked around a bit on MDC and I'm still very confused about how to proceed. Maybe some of you have good tips.
DS, last week, started peeing/ pooping on the potty. I had been telling him when he starts using the potty he won't have to wear diapers (he hates diaper changes). So immediately, he wanted big boy underwear. I couldn't find thick trainers, so I bought disposable pull-ups which he has been using same as diapers.
The cloth trainers came in the mail. He promptly peed in them twice, neither time complaining or even seeming to notice that he was wet. So yesterday he went pantless all day. One pee & one poop accident (those were at night, I think he was tired and overwhelmed), but other than that, caught himself and peed & pooped in potty all day.
Today, we went to mommy & me class. I asked him if he wanted to wear big boy underwear or a pull-up. He wanted the pull-up. I showed him the potty at the class, but he still just peed in the pull-up.
If he's not ready, I'm totally fine waiting (to be honest, this is happening way sooner than I expected). But he is adamantly refusing to put a diaper back on (I was thinking I should cut out the pull-ups and give him the choice of diaper or underwear). I think the pull-ups are fun & exciting, like big boy underwear, but easy like a diaper, to him.
Other than staying at home, pantless, all day every day, does anyone have any tips about how to proceed? Back in diapers? Switch to "real" big boy underwear (with spiderman on them, but totally not absorbent)?
How do people transition from naked training to wearing pants again?
DS1 is 5, DD is 3, DS2 is 2.
