We have been on holiday to italy for 2 weeks (which was fab ) but due to luggage restrictions and being in a caravan i used pull-ups on sam But during the day he was pretty much just in swimming trunks and using the loo (a few accidents but it didn't really matter), now we are home he refuses to put cloth on and just wants "bob pants aka pampers pull-ups or car pants aka huggies pull-ups) if i try a cloth nappy he complain "nappy big" and takes it off and he can undo poppers and underneath vests
I don't know wether to give up we are nearly PT anyway and sell my lovely stash or wait a bit and try again -maybe just night nappies Upto now he has hardly ever had a sposie on- even holidays i have taken cloth and i am beginning to wish i had paid the extra money for an extra suitcase and used it this time

tough one - could you maybe get some car cloth pull-ups or something like that, which will be thinner than normal nappies but still be cloth? It's harder when they can express a preference I guess, as it depends on whether it's worth the arguments and hassle for the sake of a few months.
I'd be inclined to go with the easy option if you think he's about ready to potty train anyway, to be honest
Awww! I would be a bit upset too, especially if I felt like it had snuck up on me when I wasn't planning on it ... although that said, I am holding out on pushing it in hopes of the miraculous "she PL'd in one day when she decided she was ready" dream, which will be a bit abrupt if and when it finally comes! I'm planning on keeping a large selection of nappies for nights, but Lili's practically dry at night already, just has a huge wee at some point after she gets up in the morning.
I'd probably keep some nappies for nights (day nappies as well as NNs, if he only needs them "just in case" he might accept them better as they're slimmer?), if you end up not using them you can always sell them later
Hmmmmm... If I was you I'd try to pt him & see how he get's on. I'm too tight to keep buying sposies if I don't *have* too If he's not ready then could you make his cloth seem really exciting & fun so he wants to wear it again? If all else fails then I'm with Danika & I'd stick with the easy option... There are enough battles with toddlers so pick them carefully I say
I'm trying to PT Hayden but he keeps yelling for a "bum bum" ( a nappy )
If I were in the same situation then it would be cloth or nothing, if you haven't got any sposies about then no amount of fuss would make them appear! Then he'd either PT or have to go back to cloth...
I've always thought that if Lily gets to the point where she turns round and wants the cloth nappies gone I'd do it, it's one thing me loving them but another if she really doesn't although I dont see why she wouldnt, they seem so much more comfy compared to nature babycare sposies which make me actually laugh as it's paper...paper and plastic, surely it's weird to disposable users isnt it, paper on the bum..i dont know. I'd go with your lo hun x
