* As soon as the diaper is back on, she the child forgets everything she's learned.
*Telling Oceana to sit on the toilet within a 1/2 hour of getting up will result in a meltdown.
(in all fairness, you get a meltdown from me for the first 1/2 hour I'm awake if you demand anything of me, so I don't wonder where this came from.)
*If she wakes up wanting to "go potty", she's already taken care of the deed.
*She actually is telling the truth when she says, "Aw' done!"
*Oceana has a hard time figuring out what the #2 sensation is. She may run to the toilet a few times before she sorts it out.
*Do not let a 2 year old go with "I wipe myse'f". It doesn't end well for the undies or the floor.
*She can hold it for 3 hours. We are doing dry naps with a towel and cloth diapers layered underneath her. (It's raining, so I'm conserving the bedding!)
*I'm so glad we're only doing diapers at night.
*If your child is toilet training, or you WANT them to toilet train, hang in there. They can't be in diapers forever. That's the only consolation prize. It's like being 38 weeks pregnant, "You can't stay in there forever Kid!"
