My 29 month old son is underwear potty trained at home and has been for about three weeks now. Two weeks ago I let daycare know that we have been working on it and asked for them to continue it now that he is comfortable and used to using the potty with no accidents. Initially they asked for him to be sent in pull-ups. I totally understood, knowing that maybe they were hesitant about how trained he really was. It has now been two weeks and they still request pull-ups and won't entertain the idea of training underwear. He has an accident a couple times a week at daycare, no accidents at home even when we are out and about. He is good at telling us when he has to go and we check with him every so often. I suggested that maybe he is using the pull-ups as a safety net and if he is not being reminded occasionally to use the restroom then he will go in the pull-up. I understand that there are other kids around and other distractions but I honestly believe that if the tactic was consistent between home and daycare then he would not be having accidents. Everything we have done with him has been cold turkey, bottles/pacifiers, crib to toddler bed etc. I feel his progression is now stagnant because daycare won't even try underwear. I have had a conversation with our provider and she won't budge? Any advice or suggestions? Thank you so much.
