My son is 27 months and he's worn disposables since birth. I've tried potty training about 3 times now since he was 17 months and I had more success when he was younger though I don't think he really knew what was happening so it was basically just getting lucky. Now he is more stubborn and will hold it for hours if I try to put him in a cloth pullup or underwear and as soon as I put the disposable diaper back on he fills it up almost immediately. Has anyone had experience with potty training at a younger age successfully as a result of using cloth diapers? I'm expecting our 2nd child, also a boy, in Nov and definitely considering starting out with cloth diapers and using them full time and only using disposables when we are out of the house.
