You guys, I have a confession to make: Layah, who is now 2 years and 4 months old, is still not fully potty trained. That may not sounds like anything strange until you hear that we have been working with her on learning to use the potty for over a year now.
But here’t the thing: our first child was 100% out of diapers by 20 months. We never even bought training pants. I actually wrote a post about how we potty trained so early, and it is one of my all-time most popular posts. Google basically thinks I’m an expert on how to get your toddler to give up diapers at a really young age.
And you know what? I sort of thought I was an expert at that, too! That is, until Layah had her own ideas about how potty training would go down. She knows how to the use the potty, and she will typically successfully use the potty anywhere from 1-3 times per day. But if she doesn’t feel like doing it, then guess what? SHE WON’T!!!
I can’t tell you how many times I have declared that we are through with diapers. At least half a dozen. Just when I think we’re all done, she decides that she isn’t quite done, after all.
So once again I found myself picking up some Huggies® at Sam’s Club. These are great to send it to school with her because they are roomy (I bought size 5 diapers…a true first for us!) and because they have a VERY cool double-grip feature. I always liked Huggies Little Movers when I used them with Darah, but this is a new and improved version, and it’s really great! We haven’t had any problems with it overnight and because it grips in two places, Layah doesn’t try too much to take them off, either. She will sometimes get past the first grip, and then she gives up when she realizes that the diaper didn’t fall off. Score!!!

And if you want to know about early potty training, here’s my new advice on the topic: it’s 10% about what you are doing to train and 90% about when your child is ready. Good luck!
If you are working hard on potty training right now and need some help figuring out how to wrap it all up and be done, I highly recommend Potty Train in a Weekend by fellow blogger Becky Mansfield. It’s a great affordable resource that you can download as soon as you purchase it. It gets rave reviews from parents everywhere who aren’t sure how to keep potty training from going on and on forever! It’s not something I knew about when we were going through all of this, but based on what I’ve heard from people who have used the book, it would have helped us! Good luck!
