Cloth diapering is not without problems. Stains, repelling liquid, and diaper stink are issues that a cloth diapering household will likely encounter at least once.
An important developmental step for every child is potty training. Most children begin using
the toilet as toddlers, usually between 18 months and 3 years old.

Before I had my first child, one of my biggest fears was taking him to the bathroom at a sporting event. While other men worried about midnight feedings and dropping a baby on his head, I fretted over a trip to one of the satellite offices of Germ Industries.
Children consistently prove to us that ultimately their bodies are within their control. We can lead them to a potty but we really can't make them go. So the choice is yours. How much time, attention, effort, and emotion do you want to invest in this? your choice is whether to give encouragement or try to control the child.
Dear Dr. Laura,
My daughter is about to turn three. She has been potty trained for several months, but lately she has started going through phases of having "accidents" fairly regularly. She will pee or poop wherever she feels like it a few times a day. We are very frustrated by this, because we know she knows how to recognize her need and use the potty.
I have a six-year-old daughter. She is using the toilet during the day but soaking a Pull-Up® at night. We limit fluids after dinner, but that doesn't help. We've even tried bribing her with girl scout camp. She says she just doesn't feel like she has to go when sleeping. I can sense she is frustrated.
So my first pregnancy was when i was 15 years old and it was during my sophomore year of high school. not really my fault or anything, just put myself in a bad situation but hey couldn't change the past. but i found out my child was gonna be a boy and i was happy. when i was 16 i had him. he was due may 1st but he came 2 wks and 4 days early. it was apr. 13th 2007. he was 7lbs 6 oz and 20.5 in. long. i named him trentyn xavier. his labor/delivery was really easy, only about 5 and a half hours long and with no pain meds and vaginal, with an episiotomy. i gained about 45 pounds with it.
