The Baby Isn’t Potty Trained Yet…What’s a Momma to Do?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Parent’s Choice Overnight Baby Diapers.
This is my baby. But let’s face it, he’s not much of a baby anymore. He’s 4. He’s growing up fast (stop that) and we’re both clinging to his “babyhood” more than I care to admit.
I kind of allow him to be a little boy. Sometimes. But I’m over protective and clingy. The youngest of 4 and my only boy. Yup, he’s my baby. But there are things that I’m kind of tired of. Failed potty training is one of them.
That’s right. Bubby is not fully potty trained yet. There are several reasons for this. 1) He has bladder control and kidney issues. 2) I’m lazy. 3) I’m the world’s worst potty trainer.
My parenting skills don’t stink in general. My kids are fed, our house is clean, they go to school, and always have clean clothes. But the potty training is another thing all together. It’s been the same with all of them. I just “expect” that they’ll know what to do. You have to pee, you use the potty right? Not so much and here’s where I fail. The oldest was potty trained by 12 months old, even at night. The second not until she was 4. It was basically “Look kid, you’re going to pre K next week and the kids will laugh at you.” Best mom of the year award right? The third was mostly potty trained by 2 but still has accidents in the night at the age of 6.
Then there’s Bubby. I can get him through most of the day without incident but the night time is another thing all together. Pull Ups are expensive and they don’t hold the massive spills he has when he has them. So what’s a mom to do?
Parent’s Choice Overnight Baby Diapers, available at Walmart, are an economical choice and very absorbent. I can put him in one of these at night and take comfort in knowing that he will sleep all night and he, and his bed, will remain dry.
The extra absorbent strip keeps my “baby” dry and comfortable. The soft inner liner is hypoallergenic and treated with vitamin E and aloe for skin protection. That’s important to me. My Bubby has extremely sensitive skin and a lot of things break him out. These do not which is an added bonus to their absorbency and value. Parent’s Choice offers the most affordable overnight product on the market. SCORE!
The quality construction is evident and when I initially bought these overnight diapers, I felt confident putting them to the test.
My little man knows that he still needs protection at night so he doesn’t put up a fight. He doesn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night in a wet bed so he’s content in knowing that I’m doing the right thing to assure that he has a comfortable night.
And knowing that my baby will get a good night’s sleep makes this momma sleep a little more comfortably too. Hopefully he’ll outgrow this soon, but until then, I’m happy to know that there is an affordable product on the market that keeps him dry and comfortable all night long.
Night time protection for babies is an important consideration for parents as their little one grows. Ordinary diapers may not have enough absorbent capacity to handle multiple voids over long periods of time with older babies. When wet mornings become the norm, parents start looking for more protection to guard against overnight leaks.
Parent’s Choice Overnight Baby Diapers are super absorbent for overnight and long-trip protection. This is an overnight diaper at prices that everyone can afford!

  1. I feel your pain and remember getting all upset when it wasn’t happening quickly for Kayla 🙁 But by kid number 4 I mean, you know the ropes, it’s just going to happen when he decides, right? Until then it sounds like you’ve got a solution…thank goodness

  2. I totally feel your pain especially last night with Hayley sobbing at 4 AM that she wet her bed! Potty training all together is so hard. I am not looking forward to it with Zane! These seem like a great option!

    Babies are only little for so long – you get a break for this one. Try what you can but kids move at their own pace in their own time.

    Hopefully your baby will grow out of this, but in the meantime, just let him be a little guy for as long as he wants.

  5. Hi
    My daughter wore diapers till she was 4 and a half at night…nothing wrong with that!.
    She was quite happy to lie down on the bed to let me put her diaper on.
    Did your son lie down for you?
    We used Huggies Disposables…

  6. hi
    since this was written awhile ago im curious does he still wet the bed? if not when did he stop? my mom kept me in diapers till i was almost 10 for bedwetting it was embarrassing!

    • He was completely potty trained not long after this. My older daughter, now 10, stayed in pull ups (only at night) until around age 6 though. I would, personally, think 10 was pretty excessive, but it depends on the child, I’m sure!
