"toilet* training update." Fri Feb-27-15 01:08 PM by SHAstayhighalways
*i hate the term potty. no i don't know why i just hate it so i call it a toilet. my son calls it a toilet and everyone is happy.
anyway, things are doing so much better!!
a couple of weeks ago he went through a pack of pull ups so fast i was like ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!
and stopped using them all together (even when he went to bed but now he wears them when he goes to bed just in case) i am lucky enough to spend most days with him so i buckled down and just stayed behind him about using the bathroom all day long even when he cried about going. before he'd cry and i'd be like 'aight let me know when you need to go' and he' just pee on himself so i really just stayed on him. also learned his patterns. anytime he drinks it usually takes about an hour before he needs to pee. if he hasn't peed or drank in a while giving him a lil something to drink then taking him to the bathroom right after was key.
2 weeks later and for the most part he goes on his own he was already good with pooping but he finally gets the 'i gotta pee' sensation and goes with it. i still have to stay behind him if i notice he hasn't gone in a while and he still cries sometimes (he doesn't like to stop playing to pee) but over all things are MUCH better and he's almost there. he still has accidents here and there but he's gone a few days in a row with no accidents at times. and for that...i am grateful.
