Ugh. So, trying to potty train our twins… and it is not going well. Going by history (i.e. eldest boy), our kids just love the convenience of going in diapers as opposed to the loo. I’ve tried it all – the running around nappy free, using big boy pants, and they just don’t seem to get it. Which is fine & dandy, but when you have pre-school starting soon, the alarm bells ringing in my head are driving me to insanity over this issue… we’ve been at it since the beginning of July.
One boy has caught onto the concept of big-boy pants, and keeps relatively dry, but as soon as the diaper goes on for nap time, the flood gates are open, and at end of nap is wet. It’s not the end of the world, but I don’t want him holding in his wees either!
Our other boy I’ve had to temporarily put a hold on training, as I’ve been left a bit scarred having to clean poop smeared all over our playroom (thankfully room had been recently tidied, so toys dodged it), all whilst asking my 5 year old to occupy the 2 year old daughter and drag her away from a messy toddler & playroom.
Wee accidents are a doddle to clean up, but OMG poop ones are so SO bad.
I just got in the NEW Charlie Banana 2-in-1 Swim Nappy & Training Pant this week – so I really want to test drive it on my twin who had the big-boy-pant poop explosion. It’s got nifty side snaps, to ensure quick & easy removal if soggy (from swimming) or dirty (when potty training). I’ll be sure to post a review when I’ve taken the pant through it’s paces!
In the meantime, if you’d like to pass on any hints or tips on potty training boys or girls, I’d be grateful 🙂
