|It sounds like I really need to get going on my training pants! I have everything except need more FOE, may need a little more terry depending on how many I make, and need tons of time! The pattern I have can make trainers that snap, but they are still quite different from diapers. Once I sell some Toddle-ease and possibly my AIOs I would be able to buy some bedwetter pants. Right now at night I use a bamboo liner, a cotton dry liner, and sometimes another liner. It's bulky and doesn't fit well.
I feel very fortunate that the boys are potty training at all! I planned to wait quite some time, but one day Nathaniel stated many times during dinner that his diaper was wet. I was excited that he told me this for the first time, but wanted reinforce that we stay seated during dinner. I finally gave in and was annoyed when he was dry. He pointed to the bathroom, I took him, he said, "come" and he went! Since then it's kind of like you, Karen, in that we can go days with few wet diapers and then days where they won't even go potty. They also hate having wet diapers changed and really fight with poopy diapers! I am trying not to push this right now and make it a power struggle. I ask them to go and rarely do I sit them on the pot if they don't want to go. Some days they even tell me that they need to go (often motivated by getting to wash hands!). I really do feel fortunate that the boys are pottying at all. They both have atypical autism and are quite high functioning (and very, very intelligent), but any kid on the autism spectrum usually does not potty train until four at the very earliest and often not until five. With short boys who eat way too much we'd be in trouble if we had to wait that long!
I'll just have to figure out what size bedwetter since these guys are out of Toddle-ease at less than 40 lbs and have large waists!
