    Have you tried one pieces put on backwards? Taping the diaper around the waist so it's harder to pull off?
    This interesting.

    I have 2 year old whose BM changed. Not a poop investigator but suddenly when he did go, it was like explosion and head to foot. I had to shower him more than once.

    But parents were good and so we get chatting to see what changed in this child. He used to just go every couple of days but it contained in diaper and now the diaper is not doing the trick.

    It turn out that at home, after his 2nd birthday, parents switch from Homogenized Milk to 2% which is the recommendation. He good eater so not need calories from milk.

    Here, he remained on Homogenized Milk just because I not going to buy Homogenized for under 2's and 2% for over 2's and 1% for my husband and I.

    Anyway the Mom and I did some research and it seems that the difference in fats between two type of milk can have this effect on small number of children. To test, we switch him back to just Homogenized milk and sure enough, problem ends.

    I not saying for sure this is the problem with your child but was interested to note that this is a two year old as well. Maybe ask what type milk they give at home or maybe you switched him recently? Something to look at maybe?

    As for answering your question: If he is 3 and still not getting it after a few days it is either because 1) he's not ready or 2) The effort isn't great enough at home AND daycare.

    I require in my policies that toilet training must begin at home. I suggest they begin full tilt on Saturday morning and have 2 solid days of underwear only. I even suggest they do it on a long weekend, or on holidays. The kids do wear pull ups here, but if they have gone 2 weeks without accidents both at home and at here then they may transition to underwear at daycare. This system has worked wonderfully for us and motivates the parents as well to stick at it. Starting toilet training 2 weeks before he is finished is ridiculous, and he would absolutely be wearing a pull up at my house until his accidents have stopped.

    After being a long time lurker, I specifically created this account a few minutes ago to reply to this thread. As a mother, my main concern is how you all find the time to bicker and reply while watching children. This is one of the main reasons I chose not to go with home daycare.

It also interested to note if more than just me express opinion, it only me you attack. I did not ask you to explain yourself - I think you protest too much that I mentioned a factual event that I cannot refer back to the age of a child because you edited your comment. Why are you so offended and defensive of the truth of an event?

    I can draw my own conclusions (and have done) about why you feel need to rant and then tone down. I think much is to do with your need for validation and not having strength of character to stand by your actions or words. It a repeating pattern we seeing from you.

    You imagine a slight by applying a tone of your choosing and then you attack people. It's a small minded bullying tone because you repeatedly go after same person. I think this very dangerous personality type in one who cares for children. Power tripping carer's are very dangerous, have cruel streak, and often narcissistic.

    It's doesn't matter to me. It amused me. It's like teenager editing story all time. It's interesting to see from an adult. Very telling about type of person.

    Why you worried about someone keeping track of your post - it hardly tricky - one click and all the drama is there to read. No need me keep track, system does it for me. If this what you worry about, maybe invest that time sorting out business so less drama to post about. I think most adult with true investment in their business would be focussing on that.

    I always wonder why you need to pop up and make situation personal every single time, always trust you to read the worst into any post. It is almost entertaining to be able to predict which post you will imagine to be a dig, and you come out attacking.

    Do you speak to your "rude" "inconsiderate" "unbelieveable" clients this way too? Do you often imagine any comment is a dig at you? Do you think people even care enough to bother doing that?

    Only concern I have with you is repeated action of blaming others for situation you in, belittling of clients for being rude, unrealistic, daring to request a change in situation, the know-it-all tone of superiority over the parents of children in your care and the narcissistic tendencies. The bitterness in your posts, the covering of your tail by editing your strong rants - it's like you can't help yourself, need to post for the attention and then realise it shows you in bad light or that you don't get the validation or awesomeness you expected. That only concern me because you have young children in your care.

    I know this might not be popular post but someone on such a power trip with such anger and bitterness towards people who you simply determine you don't like, is a worry. To not be able to control yourself and conduct yourself professionally is big worry when there is not another adult to monitor your power around little children.

    It very scary that you chose this for your career. Hopefully this on-line persona is not real reflection of your true personality.
    No one attacked you, stop playing the victim. This is exactly what I meant by my post above.

    As home daycare providers we are isolated in our homes all day with no adult interaction. Have you never had yourself or any coworkers bicker in the course of your work day? Like in any profession different personalities and different opinions leads to (what you call) bickering. Our bickering is more obvious because it is in writing for everyone to read (and reread) and it is online which allows everyone to more easily magnify their responses.

    We multi-task for most part. When kids eating food, if all independent eaters we just need to be close by for choking hazard.

    Also, it just take a few mins now many have internet on cellphone.

    Like when you at office. You go to washroom and stop by a friend desk on route and exchange few words, or maybe nip to coffee room and pour coffee and have quick chat to colleagues. I seriously doubt that you head down, working, full on, all day every day.

    Also remember, this is county wide site. So here in PEI. it now lunchtime. For others it might be early evening.

    You had time to create account and comment and your child fine in those few mins? Likely play at feet or on swing? It's not like sitting in front of computer for 10 hours a day. It jump on an off, like you chatting to colleagues for short time each day.

    It amazes me the double standard of expecting a day care provider to be fully focussed on children from 6am until 6pm when no other profession not expected a couple mins interaction here and there throughout day. If you think it any different at day care centre, you very, very naive.

    People like you are the main reasons we interview. It two way process. Unrealistic parent who pay $35 an hour for 12 hour day which is about $22 after food, milk, heat, business expenses is actually paying about $1.80 an hour for care. You really, really expect to be boss too and to limit all interaction for duration?

    It okay that home day care not suit you. But understand you attitude is unrealistic and many of us would not take you if you not think it okay to spend short time when children napping to interact with others. Or would you prefer that we one of those carer who stay off line but instead have friends over during nap time to interact?

    When parent paying more than $1.80 an hour, perhaps they in better position to judge and apply standards which not apply to themselves?

    I now understand.

    You not parent - you is either Emma H. with new account because not getting your point across of you one of her little friends.

    True narcissism.

    Now you switch accounts and object to observations. Game playing at it's finest. I leave you to get on with it. Very twisted.
