Turning of the Tides...

So...the newborn series is complete...there are a few other things that I may write reviews on later...but for now we are going to skip right along from newborn diapers to cloth trainers!!!  My my how they grow! LOL!  Nah, Baby J is still in his diapers...but Miss A is getting closer to potty learning and we have been using more cloth trainers.

A few months back, I decided to take the hard line that Miss A was DONE with diapers.  Big mistake.  This child does not want to potty train and there I was stuck between not wanting to go back into diapers and give her the wrong message and the FEW cloth training pants that I had.  I hadn't bought many because I *thought* that potty training would be rather quick!  I hear all of these stories about how kids train in a few days or they just BAM potty train!  So many mamas on the swap pages are selling never used training pants because their kids potty learned before they could use them!  So I didn't bother to buy a bunch.

And then I found myself not wanting to put Miss A back into diapers...but needing something more absorbent than underwear!!

So I have invested in a bunch of Training Pants...and you get to benefit too!  Trainer reviews to come from Best Bottoms, GroVia, Flip, Blueberry, and good ol' Gerber!  I had posted reviews on the Fuzzibunz and Smart Bottoms trainers previously, but will update those as well! :)  Are there any other trainers you would like to see reviewed???  Open to suggestions!!!  I haven't found a great one for night time, so Miss A still wears a cloth diaper at night!

Also, who has some good potty training tips???  I think I have tried them all....but always looking for new ideas!  My little girl has a LONG stubborn streak!  So I need ideas for the stubborn child.  Her latest is when I ask her if she needs to use the potty her answer is "I did poop in potty." you didn't!  Little liar!!!  LOL!  Going on 3 1/2 and needs to be thinking about using the potty!!!  When did your child potty train?  And was it hard, easy, etc?  Fill me in!

Also, for experienced mamas...what is the one piece of advice you could give to a mama about to potty train her child?


  1. Oh my gosh I totally get you. I never though L would train... and even still we are having trouble at night time with her. J was stubborn as well and one day he just decided to go with it... you can't rush them sadly. They have to decide when and where.... it's a control thing. L was pooping on the potty at 1 but took till she was almost 4 to pee train.... hang in there.

  2. My son was 2 years and 3ish months when he potty trained. I would honestly ditch the trainers while at home and let her go naked or use underwear. And then put a potty where she can access it at all times.
