So K-Dub has been telling us when he poops off and on for a couple of months now and over the past week or so he’s been saying, “Pee pee potty”. When I bring him to the toilet he freaks out and doesn’t want to get too close to it (if he’s naked) or take his diaper off.
He will be three is 6½ weeks (!!) so I know it’s coming, but I’m not ready. What am I going to do without my cloth diaper
addiction hobby love? How am I going to resist buying all of those cute prints?
My oldest potty trained right around his third birthday but I was looking forward to it with him. He was in disposables, not cute cloth. I didn’t know the rush of trying a new brand or scoring a new Ragababe on stocking day back then. All I knew was buying pack after pack after pack of diapers. Boring and expensive. (My husband might say that my diaper addiction is expensive too but I am in the works of proving that’s not true).
With K I am taking the same approach as I did with his older brother. I am very much into child led everything. I figure kids don’t go to Kindergarten in diapers and he will decide when the time is right. At this time I still think we have a little while to go since he doesn’t seem to know or care that he has to use the potty before he goes. Now he just says “Pee pee potty” during diaper changes or when I take his diaper off for a bath. But this weekend I will be buying a potty and a ring seat for the toilet and it will probably start the ball rolling.
But on a happy note, even as recently as this morning I bought two diapers. Haha. Nope, I don’t have a problem. I can stop anytime I want and that will be when he is 100%, completely trained.
What is it about cloth diapers that makes us
addicts moms not look forward to potty training as much as our disposable using counterparts? Is it the prints/colors or is it the high of buying diapers? For me I think it’s partly the high of scoring a diaper but it’s also being part of this wonderful culture of women. I’m not ready to give that up.
What keeps feeding your cloth diaper addiction?
