Noah got big enough for G-diapers provided by the generous Dan and Leah and I have to say, they're wonderful!
He looks super cool, and the inserts actually do go down our toilet (Yeah!). They're just as easy as disposables. When he gets bigger and we get used to our laundry in the next little while, we'll transition over to bumgenius.
We've been trying gentle toilet training at the same time, but since I'm not super-hard-core, I've just been giving Noah the opportunity to pee/poop in a tupperware. Since I'm not using any special cues to know if he actually wants to go, sometimes he does go, and sometimes not. Either way, I try not to make a big deal of it. Instead I'll use Concrete Gardener to be excited about my son's toilet adventures!
