My mother says that my brother and I were toilet trained by 18 and 15 months (I was a bit older because she waited for the summer). We were in cloth nappies in the 70s.
 
My daughter was over 3...

Imse Vimse training pants fit quite small - my DD was tiny - sounds like about the size of your DD - and fit the XL (strange sizing). Really nicely made too. I bought a couple more for DS and...

DD was like that at 4. And 5. She's beginning to be more stoic at 6. I'm sure it's personality X age.

If we're outside because we're waiting for the school bus with DD (who is also wearing a hat and I think that helps), I just keep putting it on.
 
If we're outside for fun, and putting it back on...

We're a fan of 1-pieces here too.. but I have the luxury of having an extra winter coat handed down from DD that still fits DS - so we have a fleece car suit, a 1-piece Land's End snowsuit, and a...

It will stop. My son was a terrible screecher (and my husband has tinnitus, which is a BAD combination!). I don't remember exactly when it stopped, but he no longer screeches.

My favourite training underwear are Little Beetles and Imse Vimse. They're not cheap, unfortunately, but they work very well. The LBs aren't waterproof at all, so I pair them with a cover when I...

Thanks - it was a good day. It was very low-key - it's a tiny country Anglican church, and really WAS a "show up and smile" type thing. The parents themselves are "church on the big holidays" type...

My husband and I are in exactly the same boat - the baptism is tomorrow. My husband is a godparent (I'm a humanist - I was not asked LOL). DH is simply agnostic. I'm surprised they asked, but they...

I find mother-ease Sandys (they have a large and a Toddler size) with a doubler, and sometimes a hemp doubler on top of that, plus a wool cover, are pretty much bulletproof.

Yep, he got the rash (still does sometimes at 20 months) just around the gusset and sometimes around the waist. Around the gusset it sometimes came up as a raised "burn" that would then peel, but...

Yep. My son has had issues with this since birth. Any PUL/waterproof cover, except all-nylon covers, do this to him. Bummis SWW were a big offender - covers with exposed PUL (Thirsties, SuperBrites...

It's suedecloth. I don't know quite how you'd do it - perhaps it's as easy as cutting a piece of suedecloth to fit and sewing it down?
 
Alternatively, Cottonbabies sells (or did sell) suedecloth...

Yep here too. DS can eat most anything, although I do try to avoid the traditional choking hazards (but he has swiped those too on occasion and had no problem with them). I'd consider getting it...

Yes, I do, and it's not really a choice in this house! DS nurses to sleep, and if I try to get him down at a normal time if he has a late nap, he just won't sleep. Period. He'll just nurse and roll...

You may have more luck telling your dog what TO do, rather than saying "no" or "bad". (So, "Molly, OFF!" when she jumps, or "Molly, sit!").

That's exactly the approach I took. I night-weaned DD at 2.5 almost exactly. I simply said "no more milk at night after tomorrow" (or something similar).
