Hi I've posted a few times about my daughter who is 4 in September not being potty trained and us putting her back in nappies full time. She has been in nappies now for nearly 2 months and life has been so much better, I was initially embaressed what others would think as she is big for her age but in fairness I gave up caring what others thought. She is slightly delayed emotionally and still holds on to some of her toddler comforts like her dummy and night bottle and up until last week she didn't mind wearing the nappy. However she has started to become more vocal about wearing a nappy as apparently nappies are for babies! So we tried 2 days of no day nappy and knickers and it was a disaster, she got through ever pair of knickers she owns and has no concept of when she needs to go to the toilet. If I tried to put her on the potty or toilets she went in to meltdown. Day 3 I put her back in to a nappy, my problem is she pleads not to wear one and I feel guilty putting it on her but she isn't ready, we've had conversation after conversation and she knows that she should be going on the potty but can't seem to do it. The hardest part is changing her if out and looking like a lazy parent putting their daughter who is clearly asking not to wear a nappy in one and seeing the glares I get!
Sorry for the long post but what I'm probably looking for is some reassurance that I'm not being a bad lazy parent and that as the adult I am making the right decision for her. In an ideal world I would bin everything baby realated, bottles dummy and nappies but she simply isn't ready.
