How soon are they out of diapers?

For years our departure date for our big, multi-year trip has been "two kids, both out of diapers." Our plan remains the same, and what's changed is that kiddo number 2 has now arrived!

Horray! New crew!

So I now have 2 boys, and we have no plans to make or aquire any more. So, if I were to know how soon they'd both be out of diapers, I'll know our departure date for our big trip. My oldest boy is 2 years old and doesn't show any real interest in potty training. I also understand that boys still wet the bed for several years after giving up daytime diapers. That's okay with us, we'll still untie the lines with bed peeers.

Any thoughts, predictions, or tips from the more seasoned?

Just head off now and go cruising! Your kids can learn potty stuff whilst they are trying to find you.

My own two boys are now 10 and 14. The older one's feet are now as big as mine. Go as soon as you can. It goes by WAY too fast.

Re: How soon are they out of diapers?

Congrats on the "new crew" !
Ain't it grand?

All four of mine were potty-wise by about age three. My son was ready to leave diapers behind at 3 plus a.month or so, and never went back.

I had the thre eldest out in the sailing dink at 5 , threeand a half and near three(age approx.. as we had three within thirty months!). no one pee'd. themselves! Other than the logistics of diapers aboard; I see no problems.

Go F'rit

Congrats on the new addition, wonderful news...

I'm far from seasoned, buI suspect Charlotte of REBEL HEART probably has it about right, that it's silly to go cruising offshore with kids younger than about 3... Of course, she probably should have heeded her own advice... :-)

Perhaps it's just me, but I'd probably be forever a bit miffed at my parents, if we had sailed to a place like the South Pacific when I was still too young to have any real memory of it...
