Side Opening Waterproof Training Pants

Coming soon...side snap waterproof training pants. Perfect for beginning toilet learners as they still provide easy up and down, yet have snaps on the sides in case of a yucky mess. The other purpose would be for a child who still has not achieved night time dryness. In that case, they can be used with soaker pads for trainers (narrower than diaper soaker pads) for extra absorbency. They will be available at the end of September 2012 in solid colors (blue, bubblegum pink, and violet) in sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T.

Toilet Training Resistance

What do you do with a two year old who is bright enough to identify random alphabets; knows all shapes; tells you when they've "pooped" but absolutely refuses to use the potty? You wait. When sitting on the potty chair, she will push up with her arms, elbows locked, and swing her legs to the side, supporting her weight on her arms. That's great if I were training her for the Olympics. She'll sit for 15 minutes and do absolutely nothing then "tee tee" immediately after being diapered. Feeling wet in cloth training pants...that's not a bother to her. Someone suggested that I try an adaptor type seat that sits on the toilet seat. That resulted in tears and immediate protests.

Having gone down the toilet training path a time or two, I know this is one of those things that I have absolutely no control over. So what do I do? I put the toilet seat thingy back in it's bag. For now, I'll just wait on her for a bit and try again. One day it will happen and if you are going through toilet training resistance, the same will be true for you!
