Baby J came to us with no diapers. We were told he was potty trained, and that he would tell us when he needed to go. Great news! We went back to our hotel, our guide showed him the potty, and tried to help him go. He wasn’t having any of that, and when we changed his clothes, we put a diaper on him until we could go to the store and buy some underwear.
The toilet at the hotel was scary for him, and he wouldn’t go near it. The boy was used to a sqatty potty, so a toilet must have seemed huge, and frightening.
Baby J is still wearing diapers…he never told us when he had to go to the bathroom, he never said the chinese words for potty, he never even pointed that he had to go. His diaper would always be wet, but he seemed oblivious, and he never wakes up at night when he goes.
I am thinking that if he was potty trained, it was very new. Or maybe his foster parents took him to the bathroom every hour or so? Or, maybe he just regressed.
For now though, our boy is in diapers, and that is just fine.
I just have to get used to changing a diaper regularly again… I have gotten out of practice, and I forget, ha!
