Quoting Ryloonjimama:" Most days, I don't put one on him, I don't really care about poo on the floor cause I can clean it... but other days he demands to have one on. He's so weird."


Just say no then :?



He needs to hear it sooner or later because otherwise he'll start walking all over you later on.

What do you mean he "demands" to have one on? Is he your parent or the other way around? It sounds like he is training you. If he can go days without it he is potty trained already. Why do you even have the nappies in the house if they're such a problem?

I know you're not being rude. I know that it's true. I hate it. :( I just feel like I don't have the willpower to fight against his tantrums lately. He never let's up and since I've been pregnant, he's really broken me down. He's so stubborn and so strong for a 3 year old. I just give into him a lot for the sake of peace. I know it's wrong but he's really taken a toll on my mental/emotional health.

I understand. I think all moms do that to a point every once in a while.
Have you tried distracting him when he asks for a diaper? Or maybe getting a bag of gummy bears for when he goes potty?
I know it's going to suck but I really think the best thing to do is to put them up where he can't see them and not put them on him until night time. And you're probably going to have to deal with a few tantrums. (they drive me up the wall too)
Good luck on everything. Toddlers can be little devils :lol: They want their way or no way lol. It just takes time and a lot of "I'm bigger than you so you WILL listen to me" talk lol.
Good luck.

He does hear no, a lot. I just try to pick my battles because of what I said above. I guess though that he's just learning more if he completely flips shit he'll get his own way.... He's just such a hard little person, I often wonder if there's something more going on in his head the way he freaks over things and the outbursts he has over little crap but the doctor says he's too young to tell.



I know what I have to do with this though. I want him of out nappies by the time the new baby comes in June. Ugh. Potty training sucks. He's going to start preschool early next year, so I hope that helps it all to fall into place.
