Although I've been a member here a while, I've only recently become a master lurker <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: So, I'll start w/a quickie intro <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> My name is Cory and I live in a southern 'burb of Chicago. I have 3 kiddos ~ Takoda is 5, Sagan is 3, and Eiley is almost 2. We are also expecting our second little princess in September. I always wanted to CD, just always thought it was Gerber prefolds & vinyl pants <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> Sooooo, we finally took the plunge and began CDing exclusively in November. Of course, we all love it ~ especially DH WOO HOO!!!<br><br>
Now, onto my question. Sagan turned 3 in January and has absolutely NO DESIRE to use the toilet and I have NO DESIRE to force him. Over the past month, his poop has gotten BAD!!!! To the point that I contemplate tossing the CD. It's just plain gross. So, do any of you CD one and not the other? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">:

I know some cloth diaper one and not the other.. I only have one little guy so I can't say. You can always do a gel free disposable brand like Tushies or 7th Generation. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Welcome and Congratulations!!

Hey Cory! Welcome to MDC <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm not much help, but I will say that at this age, when they do decide to PT, it's nearly instantaneous. Back in April, I posted here asking who had the oldest non-PT'ed child (turned out it was me, lol), and not two weeks later, Julia told me she wanted to wear undies. She's had maybe three accidents (all in the first few days) since then. So maybe if you hang in there just a bit longer, Sagan will surprise you soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I only CD one, but Noah has had the kind of poop that makes me want to toss a diaper every now and then, LOL. Thank God for the mini-shower. Welcome to the board, I'm new too.

Just wanted to say hang in there...from what I've heard, cd'd babies potty-train earlier than 'sposie kids, so you might want to just "put up with it" for a little longer.

Ok, we're in the same boat as far as 3 yo are concerned <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> So far, Shea will poop for m&m's :LOL but he'll sit in a soaking wet dipe for hours if I'd let him.<br><br>
If you don't have a minishower - GET ONE - perfect for those disguisting toddler dipes!!

Although my cd'd kiddo is only 6 months, I was going to also recommend the mini-shower! It is great. And when yours does potty train/learn, it's great to wash out the little potty (if you use one) and or underwear for those uh oh's. And, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> welcome to the diapering board and congrats on your soon-to-be-here arrival! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
