My just turned 2, stepdaughter has been potty training for almost 6 months now. She started on a potty and a feww weeks ago we bought her a trainer seat for her toilet so she can step up by herself. We also then introduced pull-ups. For one week she was really good with her pull-ups, only wetting one a day and only if we left it on while she had a nap. She even wore pull-ups to daycare and told the staff when she needed the toilet. The following week however she didnt seem interested in wearing pull-ups anymore. I did notice a slight rash starting to develop when she wore pull-ups and am wondering whether this would effect her eagerness to wear them. My partner asked his ex (stepdaughters mum) what she is using as potty training as my stepdaughter spends weekends with her mum. Apparently at her mums house she runs around in undies with no problems and only wears a nappy for bed/nap time. Whilts I realise the different methods are probably confusing the poor toddler I am concerned that trying to put her in underwear now is too soon. It is ok if she has an accident at home - she has an abundance of clothes to change into. But at daycare its a different story!! Any advice would be a big help! Thanks.
