Pops has been potty trained in the day since she was just over 2 years old (despite the odd hiccup). I don’t feel comfortable putting her in a nappy. It’s confusing and unnecessary – she’s potty trained.
We just went to a pool where the age was four. FOUR! That’s crazy. By that age most children will be in school and should be potty trained. I understand not all will be for a number of reasons and that’s different. How can it be fair to force a child (one who could have been dry two years by that age) to wear a nappy?
The manager told me they had to close the pool three times last year for kids having accidents in the pool and since they upped the age to four they haven’t had to.
What if they do have to close because an over four year old has an accident? Will they up the age to five? I know kids that have have accidents older than four and even some adults (albeit after a few drinks haha)
Personally I feel it should be a case of;
Potty trained = no nappy.
Not potty trained = nappy.
Would people really lie about their kids being potty trained just to get out of wearing a nappy?
Pop’s is 3 and will tell me every time she needs to leave the pool for a wee and I don’t want to lose that by putting a nappy on her.
Do you think a 3/4 year mandatory swim nappy is necessary?
Until the next post,
Are and Pops.
