We are slowly but surely working on this potty training thing with Zoe. She had “accidents” the first six days of her potty training. (I say “accidents” in quotation marks because we are certain that she knew what she was doing at least half of the time. It seems awfully suspicious to us that immediately after Christian put her in time out and p*ssed her off, she just happened to take a dump in her underwear.)
Anyway, we were ready to throw in the towel after six days, but thought we’d give it just one more day. That was Thursday, and she has not had any accidents since. We are still doing diapers for naps and bedtime, but she is diaper free the rest of the day. I am cautiously optimistic.
So my question is this: Do girls who wear underwear still wear “bloomers” or “diaper covers” with dresses? Most of her dresses come with diaper covers (since she is still wearing 12-18-24 months dresses). Because my little girl is not-so-lady-like, I feel like I should still be covering her panties, especially since her panties are gigantic on her. (The smallest size the undies come in is 2T-3T, which is entirely too big for her. She needs 12-18 months, which I can’t find anywhere). Since I know my delicate little princess will inevitably end up flashing her too big panties, and therefore her hoo ha, should she also wear the “diaper cover” to give a little more “cover”? (My only hesitation is that I don’t want to make it too difficult for her to pull up her own underwear at potty time, and two pairs of “panties” seems a little like overkill.) Or, maybe should she just wear the “diaper cover” as her panties (but some of those are even more gigantic than the underwear)? Thoughts, dear internet friends?
