Children and use of diaper - upto what age?

My children are grown ups now, still I remember when they were small I never wrap up them with diaper by 24 x 7. We used it only on going out for any function or on travel. My younger son refused to use the same once he becomes completed one year old. I gave some extra efforts to make them habitual when they want to pee. My neighbor’s child is 2 and half years old now and still 24 hours he is on diaper. I told his mother to avoid this diaper as it is hot climate. But I realized she is not that much interested to change the habit of the boy. I think children never learn the good habits on using the diaper without any restrictions. I am not against the same but I felt it should be used on need, not always. Your views please?

i think the kids should be toilet-trained when they reach the age of 2 years, because they are developing their bladder and bowel control.

Children can inform those things at the age of 1.5 years. If the child is using the diaper then parents least bothed to give a training.

@Sreekala bladder and bowel sphincter control are fully developed once a child reaches her toddler years. a 1 and 1/2 year young child is not yet able to control her sphincter, that is why words like WEE_WEE or POO-POO are often uttered by her, or any toddler for that matter.

@ridingbet But just think when she/he is demanding something and get ignored then she do it in her/his pants. Then it become habituals to her/him, later parents may complaint on their bad habitual.

I don't remember this with my nephews and niece, but at some point they stop using diapers. Well, it's her own consequence if she didn't listen to you.

She knows this and accepted my words too but she works and her mother in law look after the child, Her hubby works in abroad. May be all these reasons, she might think not give much burden to mother in law.

Diapers are not good... As you said while traveling it's okay.... But other times..... I think clothes are best for babies.. Using diapers 24/7 can cause rashes.... Rashes cause pain to babies ...So diapers are not good all the time...

Yes dear, especially a baby completed the age of 2, it must be removed. How the child learns to use the toilet for personal needs?

I agree. The problem is child never learns to use the washroom or toilet properly. They just don't bother about do it in pants.

Nowadays mothers are using diapers just because they don't want to change the kid again and again but I really dislike it if the mother is a home maker then the kids must feel free
