I've always been a believer that a child will potty train when they are ready. However, I'm also not against helping them along a little bit in their training. Heck, I make and sell cloth training pants to do just that (shameless plug). :)
Anyways, I have a stubborn one and we've tried everything. He thinks the potty chair is great, when he feels like using it. He wants to wear his big boy underwear, but doesn't want to stop playing to go to the bathroom. And I do not like cleaning up puddles.
SO I decided to "bulk" up his underwear. This was all made using scraps of PUL and flannel.
There will be some fraying as they are washed but they are serving their purpose. They are keeping puddles off of the floor and he can still feel when he's wet!
Now to go sew the other half dozen. :)
