Quoting MommyofAlex&(almost)Aiden:" I never really woke my son up...I either let him pee through and he'd wake me up when he did (or woke ... [snip!] ... in them. I wouldn't keep diapers around either it can make the potty training longer because they know they can go in them. "
I have cloth diapers, so they'll still be here on the bottom shelf of the linen closet like always. He's been out of diapers except bedtime for months now. During the day he doesn't even need to be reminded to go---he's 100% independent on potty, including wiping himself and washing hands and making sure he cleans up his pee mess if he misses. Hell, in public restrooms now he tells me to wait outside so he can go himself
And I have a waterproof mattress liner that I'll put on tomorrow to save our mattress (I had no idea he'd go commando tonight). And I have a towel to go on top of the sheet. I don't like using disposable items if I can avoid it, so I am hoping to avoid puppy pads by just keeping him from going in the bed to begin with.
And he is commando tonight---actually stark naked. He just decided he wanted to be nude tonight--and I'm okay with that since I don't want the feeling of undies to make him feel ike he's in a diaper (he wears cloth, so they don't feel that different probably). He pees WAY more than those padded undies have ever held. I bought ONE pack of them when we first started PTing and tossed them a few days later.
