Yes, we still have the occasional day accident like this past weekend when I was doing laundry. I went to her room to put away clothes and realized there were a pair of panties on the floor. Upon further investigation I realized they were wet (fun). Next up comes the search for ‘the wet spot’ in the house. Here is how the conversation went.
Me: Bai, do you have panties on?
Bai: Yep (lifts skirt to show me)
Me: Did you pee pee?
Bai: Over here (points to spot in kitchen)
Me: (Observing that it’s mostly dry) Did you clean it up?
Bai: Yeah, with the towel (points to the kitchen towel sitting on the sink that I JUST finished wiping my hands on)
Me: Oh (sarcastically) I see! (GROSS!!! Quickly rewashes hands after I toss the towel in the laundry!)
Aside from those rare moments we’re still wearing diapers at night! This means we still use one cloth diaper every day and I am still washing cloth diapers!
What does our toddler *nighttime* cloth diaper routine look like?
- We saved our 10 favorite cloth diapers and packed up the rest.
- We’ve added a Super Undies Overnight trainer, Flip trainer, and a few other trainers that we don’t use overnight (sitting in the drawer wasting space).
- She doesn’t mind putting on a diaper and actually enjoys picking them out. This weeks favorite has been her ‘soft’ diapers (i.e. itti bitti AIO and SIO d’lish size L).
- Applecheeks diapers are easy to pull up and down by a toddler so you don’t have to snap/unsnap.
- I got lazy with washing!! I’m only washing 1-2 times a week and that wet bag STINKS!! It’s also becoming much harder to get them clean so PLEASE don’t do what I do – do what I say instead!!! Keep up your wash routine every 2-3 days at the most!!
- 50% of the time we wake up dry! Wooo Hooo! The rest of the time I think (not positive) she’s wetting first thing in the morning and just too lazy to go to the bathroom. Seriously I have a stubborn, lazy, red headed daughter!!
- I’m not in the least bit worried about nighttime training.
- My husband thinks I’m hanging on to the cloth diapers because I don’t want to be done with them (he’s wrong – I’m just lazy and know she’ll get it eventually)!
My son was day and night trained all at the same time and MUCH earlier than 3. She’s just stubborn like I said. What about you? Is your tot nighttime trained? Share your stories because I REALLY want to know that I’m not alone.
