    Default Does this make me weird?

    So DD 2.5 years is toilet training and has been for the past 3 days, we have been accident free for 2 days!

    She went to daycare today and had a fair few accidents (including 2 poos, but I was expecting her to poo as she hasn't done one for 2 days, I think maybe she was a bit scared).

    So I think I'm a weirdo because when I picked her up from daycare, the teachers asked me if I just want them to chuckher pooey knickers in the bin. I said no. They gave me a funny look like I'm very strange for bringing pooey undies home to wash.....

    Is it weird? What does everyone else do?

    What? They're the weird ones! DS has had poo accidents at daycare before and his dirty undies were just wrapped up in a little plastic bag ready for me to take home. Hardly a big deal! I'd be annoyed if they were chucking them.

    Our daycare has chucked out a few pairs if they were really gross (& only because we didn't mind them doing that).
    Otherwise they just rinsed them & bagged them up for us to take home & wash. Certainly didn't toss the lot out, that would be weird. And a little costly if it was every day.

    I work in child care and we'd get rid of the chunky stuff, rinse and bag. We wouldn't throw anything away that's not our property that's just not right (unless instructed to by the parent).

    When I worked in daycare I used to chuck them if they were absolutely covered with really wet poo and I couldn't get it off. The parents understood.

    I told ds1's daycare to chuck the undies if it's a code red poo. I can't expect them to spend too much time scraping poo of undies (gross) and I don't want a plastic bag full of lots of poo fermenting in ds1's backpack (gross). If it's a skiddie or a small pebble/that can be easily rolled off into the toilet, they can attempt to save the undies.

    I totally don't mind them chucking the undies if they are disgusting but the way the teachers looked/acted made me think I was a strange one for bringing home pooey knickers. So I was a bit worried I was going to be forever known as the pooey undies mum

    If they had of chucked them, I would of been down 2 pairs of undies today. They didn't leave the pooey undies in DD's bag but in the toilets in a plastic bag, I just rinsed them off and chucked them straight in the wash when we got home. It didn't seem like a biggy to me.

    Glad to known I'm not a weirdo (well not this time anyway lol)

    Ours just throw them out - very annoying. One week we lost 4 pairs of undies.

    I was always asked and I said yes!

    Even at home I would throw them out, thank goodness they are now well and truly past that stage.
