Diaper free

by mommy @ 2 years 5 months and 4 weeks old..

I wanted to post this post for quite some time but have been forgetting about it. Anyway, I want to annouce proudly that Isabel is now diaper free from day to night..all day long...

I knew she was ready to potty train when she was around 2 years old, since she can understand us. But, this mommy was lazy and due to the maid leaving, I postponed this until she was 2 years and 3 months old. If I did remember wrongly, I started potty train her in early July.

It just took me a day to make her understand that she has to pee in the toilet bowl and not in her pants. She can conveyed her message very well to me everytime she needs to pee..So, there was not much accidents happenning during the training.

To my surprise, since she knows she has to pee in the toilet, she auto control her bladder even during her nap and night time. So, overnight, she was potty trained for day and night..I was amazed....It was just so easy and happened over night.

However, I still have no confidence that she can control her bladder during her sleep, though she proved to me by having dry diaper during most of her naps and night time sleep.  I still put on disposable diaper for her every night, so to finish up the remaining disposable diapers that I had..but every morning, I have to throw away a dry mamy poko, which makes me feel very wasteful.

So, one day, I decided to put on a cloth diaper for her, instead of disposable diaper.At least, if she accidently pee in her sleep, she won't wet her bed. If not, I can just wash it everyday and there will be no wastage. A good idea.

So, she is wearing her cloth diaper at night and just her panties during her nap. So far, there was no accident since the first day I potty trained her. She woke me up 2 or 3 times middle of the night asking to pee in the toilet. Even during long trip, she refused to pee/poo in the disposable diaper.

Now, I have to make sure she pee before going out. In public places, I have to carry her to pee in the toilet. But it could be messy..I feel that it is harder for a girl to pee in the public toilet compared to boy. Twice, she wanted to poo in the public toilet but fail. She waited until we reached home. Poor girl...

So, I can finally announced that she is 100% diaper free...I am proud of her...
