Side-step

We have upgraded from nappies to pull-ups to 'big boy pants' in three days. And then a major set-back: Lewis became poorly. So the potty is now ignored, hopefully until he's a lot better. The problem with pull-ups is that they are not as absorbent as nappies, so that the skin is always wet. They are designed to be 'feel & learn' so that the child would become 'uncomfortable' and learn to ask to go to the toilet. Or, in the case of Lewis at the moment, learn to ask to be changed every hour!

He still has enough time to learn to use the toilet before he goes to nursery school (in about 9 months) but with the recession and the spiders dying and all that, I'm quite in a hurry for him to wear ordinary cotton pants.
