What? We're Potty Training?!

Annelise decided that today was the day to potty train?  Matt started it.  All this hoopla this morning about going to Chuck-E-Cheese and Papa giving her a dollar.  The next thing I knew, she was peeing on the potty and refusing her diaper.  We've made it thus far without any accidents and even took a trip to the store (that was a brave mommy move). 

So, now I need some advice...

What do you do about naptime while you're potty training?  She was so furious when I put a diaper on her for naptime, but what was I going to do?  Let her pee all over the bed?

I was not prepared for this today at all - but that's life with a two year old.

We put a pull up on Isabel for nap time and night time. You could use a diaper too. I just told Isabel that for sleeping time she still needs to wear a diaper. I've found now 95% of the time Isabel keeps her diaper dry at nap time. I still use it mainly cause with Isabel I never know how long she is going to sleep. Sometimes it's an hour and a half and she could not use a diaper, but sometimes she sleeps 3 hours and that's too long for her right now to hold it.

we use a diaper at nap and night time still. We talk about how diapers are just for sleeping. Good luck!

Pull ups can be an intriguing thing, especially if she's into Dora or Princesses, maybe she'll be willing to wear them. When Sophie first started PT and really wanted to wear panties for naps, sometimes I let her wear the underwear but put a pull up on over them. Maybe she would let you do that! Enjoy the fun that it is :)

That is fantastic! Make sure she goes potty before naptime and you could see how she does without a diaper on. But for all night I would definitely use a pull up or diaper. :)
Just roll with it.

I'm with Kara. That's what I've done.

I'm on the same page as Paulina.
Trav was potty trained throughout the day (May) waaayyy before the nap/night time thing. (Dec)

We used a mix of big boy underwear with a diaper cover over it at home and pull-ups traveling.

I just started potty training with my little girl about a week ago. I had the same problem with her not wanting to put the diaper back for nap time. I let her wear her panties over her diaper and she is ok with that now. Good luck.
