My MIL just mentioned it on the way out the door that I might want to try putting plastic pants on over the underwear because it seems that just going from diapers to underwear isn't working for my daughter. She said it would probably help since my daughter keeps choosing to wear underwear now instead of her pull ups. Yes we keep pull ups in the house for night time use and outtings.
My own mother said while she's in the house to let her wear the underwear until she has 2 accidents in them. Then take them away and put her back in her pull ups......give her an hour break then start up again. It was the method that worked with my nephew better then anything else. So I've been doing that since yesterday and every 20 mintues I ask if she has to use the potty. Good news about all this is she is at least trying to hold it until she gets to the potty so I know the idea is getting through to her.
any way....I just want to know other people's experience with plastic pants over underwear or something simular. Really don't want to change the method to much because I'm afraid to confuse her now that we've made a little progress in this whole training mess.
