Q: I have a 2.5-year-old son, who I'm trying to potty train. I'm doing the naked method at home. But when I go out, or put him in casual care, I have to put a diaper on him. I used cloth the whole time before, but now he pees so much I can no longer use them. So I'm resorted to disposables (compostable). I don't want to use training pants, as they are the same as a diaper, because I cannot find eco-friendly ones. Does anyone know if I can find a cloth pull-up, without snaps on the side? I want him to feel wet if he has an accident so he can tell the difference. I want the ease of pulling them up and down when we go out on errands, so bathroom break aren't a huge production.
