Grace started using the potty at 15 months.
I hasten to add: I am not bragging.
Because it looked like she might be out of diapers by her second birthday or so, I did not replace her cloth diapers as they wore out or she outgrew them, and by said second birthday we were using disposables “temporarily.”
We’re still using them. OOPS.
Look, I don’t care if you use disposables, but I hate using them. They’re expensive (even with Amazon Prime), they smell bad (even the all-natural ones), they don’t biodegrade, like, ever, and they delay potty training.
Basically, I was grossing myself out and costing us money. So this month I cancelled the diaper shipment and bought prefolds.
DUH, WHY DIDN’T I DO THAT SIX MONTHS AGO?
Now if I could just fix the elastic in our pocket diapers, we’d be all set. But I have to A) find them, and B) find space to set up my sewing machine, and C) find/prioritize time.
And YES, I am aware that doing all of this kind of guarantees that Grace will be done with diapers. THAT IS FINE WITH ME!
