Start toilet training him. My son is 22 months and he was doing the same thing so when we are home in the day he wears undies like his big brother. Some people say its a little too young but my eldest son was fully trained night and day at 2 and one month. I just ask every 5 minutes do you need to go to the toilet. 20 mins after a drink he sits on the toilet. My son still wears nappys at night but with my eldest I didnt give him anything to drink an hour before bed, he went to the toilet before bed and every time he woke up at night he had to go to the toilet. So far in the day I havent had any accidents with my son yet.

i have the same with my little girl she just hates wearing a nappy so i started to potty train her, she is 22months now and i completly dry during the day she wears a nappy at night but as soon as she wakes up she takkes it off and goes to the toilet, every child is different and are ready at different times my son was 2 1/2 when he became dry in the day so it all depends on the child, not wanting to wear a nappy is the first sign of wanting to be potty trained, so get out the potty and give it a go a child is never to young to tell you what they want to do so follow them on this one, as the weather is getting warmer it is a great time to start.

Also let your child know it is NOT acceptable to remove the nappy themselves. If they need to be changed, or need to go potty thats one thing, but point blank tell them "you leave it alone" or "do not take this off" also you can be creative with the duct tape and some of the clothing. My 2nd child pulled her diaper off constantly, but she had a problem with zipper jammies, so we put a safety pin though the tab in the zipper, and she couldn't get them off. After a week she gave up and left the diaper alone (she was only 15 months at the time)

so if you really dont have the time to constantly go to the potty with your child i have another solution my 21 month old does the same thing so no it is not cruel but we put duct tape on her diaper it is a little harder to pull off  but one down side is that if you end up waking at 2 am for a diaper change its a little frustrating to pull off

You're very lucky. I am the oldest of 4 kids myself, unfortunately my Mum lives about 2000km away. I find that the hardest thing to deal with most of the time. We talk on the phone a lot but it isn't the same as being able to go over and see her when I want/need to.

Im glad I could help. I know how hard it is to make decisions when everywhere you turn are conflicting advice. I have my mum, who had 4 kids, who lives 10 minutes away and I ask her when I need to know something.

Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. This is the info I have needed. My Lucie (22 months) has started doing the same. She asks me to go to the toilet now, it gets a bit frustrating after the 1000th time in an hour, but I am hoping the novelty will wear off soon, and she'll be toilet trained.
