Pull Up Predicament
They are even more expensive than diapers, around 50 cents apiece. My original plan, four months ago was to use them solely for outings. Then about a month ago I reached 36 weeks and had a huge breakdown when N messed 6 underpants in one day and I could barely bend over to clean up the floor. Since then we reverted solely to pull ups, and for a week now M has been in underpants because he's staying dry almost every day. (hooray!) N however seems to have turned to the dark side and yesterday we went through 6 pull ups, sending even my level headed Hubs for a loop.A twin mom friend is using the bare bottom approach with her stubborn son, one I was too terrified (and nice) to do in January. But it's May, it's warm, and now I know he knows what to do, so N is streaking at home till he gets it and starts going in the potty. It's been an hour now and nap time is coming soon. I guess I'll give him a diaper for that (we still have some of M's 4's) due to my physical condition, but otherwise: no pants for you!
