This morning we started potty training *B*. For weeks now he's been showing signs that it was time, but I wanted to be completely sure. When he would pee in his diaper he would tell us he was "peed" and the same for "pooped" and bring us a diaper or wipes. Also, he was to the point of stripping his lower half of clothing off himself if you made him wait for even a minute after he made you aware of his diaper issue. So, at a few days shy of 21mths old potty training has began. Of course every family has their own technique and I don't want to come off as a potty training Nazi mother, but so far so good at almost 4pm. I've researched some different techniques and since his love of being nude rules we decided to go with the 3 day technique which is working nicely. He loves to be half nakey. LOL. I've added somethings to it to make it more fun for him even though they suggested not doing it...but it's working for us and adds that extra incentive he needs to still keep it fun. Last night I made this cute little sticker potty chart:And I filled up this jar with "num-nums" for doing it correctly. One piece for pee in the potty, and two pieces for poo in the potty.
We also put this potty chair in the bathroom to begin with but it was such a run for it this morning that the first accident went the entire length of the trailor. *Sigh* So, we've moved it to the family room for quicker access for now and plan to buy another chair for the bathroom tonite or tomorrow.
Right now the current status is 2 pees and 2 poops in the potty and 1 accident. Woo-hoo!!! He's soooo excited about this. I'm so proud of him, yet a little sad b/c as this is accomplished another part of the baby phase in my baby fades away. I'll keep you posted on how he does. Oh and I'll definitely have to capture the "Happy Feet" dance he does just like the movie after each correct potty. It's too cute.
