I am fuming right now. So my husband takes dd over to inlaws today to give me a break because I have been up and down with her all night. I really appreciate this, had such a relaxing day. They came home about an Hour ago and I find she is wearing pull-ups! I am furious. Apprarently she wee'd in her only pair of undies and he didnt think to take spares even though I asked him if he had everything before he left!! Grrr! So they go out and buy a pack of pull ups when a small pack of undies would have cost the same price. She has been toilet trained for about a month now and the last few days she has been getting a bit cocky/lazy - refusing to let us in the toilet with her when she goes, then just mucking around flushing buttons. Won't sit on the toilet when we ask her. But so what? I am sure kids take 2 steps forward 1 step back with things but the whole pull-up idea just infuriates me for so many reasons.
1. I loosely followed the 3 day toilet training routine and think its unfair to put her back in daytime nappies. Too confusing for her.
2. I have put in a huge amount of effort to train her and they aren't recognizing this by doing what's easiest for them.
3. I think pull ups are the biggest load of cr*p. Just a marketing gimmick to keep kids in nappies longer.
4. We used cloth 100% in the 12 months before her being trained and occasionally used disposables in the past before this.
Now dh and I aren't talking because he doesn't understand why I am so angry. And my other problem is how do I address dd mucking around with the toilet now? I've tried bribes: smarties and getting to watch Winnie the pooh and she won't respond to either. Oh and now I am going to have to say something to mil who bought the pull ups because I don't want them used on dd EVER. Grrrr so angry I have been put in this position.
