There are approximately 876 different techniques of how to get your child our of diapers. I know this because I have scoured every resource on the world wide web. I have talked with friends. I have talked it over with Mr. T. I have consulted with both grandmothers. What I have realized is - everyone has their own best method. But the kick is, it's not only figuring out WHAT method to use... it's figuring out WHEN to start.
I decided that today was the day. I decided that we were going cold turkey. No pull-ups.
So, I told Mr. T, today is the day. I turned the heat up in the house. I even dressed Big Elmo in some new knickers. I announced that today was the day and handed Toddler T his new big boy truck underwear. We spent the day playing with new Christmas toys. I in my jammies, Toddler T in a sweatshirt, underwear and socks... we both looked good! Things went great (for day 1). And then it was time to sleep.
Round 3 decisions... Are we night and day training at the same time? Will he wear a diaper? Rubber pants? Plain old truck underwear. I was panicked. I put a garbage bag under his fitted sheet. I tried rubber pants and he said "Off! These are scratchy." Off came the rubber pants. I guess I'm just diving on in. Toddler T was put to bed in the truck underwear.
For the record, I have changed the sheets once. I contemplated a diaper. I stood strong.
It is 9:15 he is still awake and is usually asleep by 7:45. I hear him singing little diddy's right now. I'm staying downstairs and will try not to research potty training to death on the Internet.
But, if anyone would like to throw a tip my way...... feel free.
