Potty Training in Three Days – Day 3, Morning

Timothy woke up with a fever today 😦 He’s not too-too miserable, but he definitely has a cold. He points at his neck when I ask where it hurts, so he must have a sore throat. His appetite is very low – which could be due to the fever, but also due to the fact he hasn’t pooped in 2 days ( last time he pooped was after the afternoon nap on Day 1 of the potty training thing, in his diaper).

I hope he is just holding it, and isn’t constipated. He usually poops twice a day (sometimes – three times), so this is unusual. Only once in all of his life was he really constipated – on vacation. It was really hot and I guess he got dehydrated. He was miserable – he was trying to poop, but couldn’t. He cried – cause it hurt.

He seems to be ok in that respect, for now.

Anyway – potty training is going well! I upped the temperature in the house so he can continue roaming with a bare bum.

He has peed 4 times in the course of the morning – not a single accident! He would be playing or reading or eating or whatever – in then he would just run and sit on the potty, pee loudly πŸ™‚ and then jump up in triumph: yaaaay!

I need to get new stickers. The ones I have do not excite him any longer. He even refused getting a sticker once :/

He’s napping now (I gave him some advil). I hope he poops soon. If not – I’ll give him prunes after the nap… and hope he doesn’t poop all over the floor (or – even worse! – couch!)

    It seems to be going wonderfully! Seems like a method worth trying

    Hope Timothy is feeling better and it’s nothing major

    Ps: I only just realised today the posts were different. I thought there was some bug sending me the same post notification repeatedly

      LOL πŸ™‚
      yeah, they are different. I decided to record the whole ordeal πŸ™‚

      Yes, I think the timing is right. And not only for Timothy, who seems to have grasped the potty thing right away, but for Zachary, too – for he is finally quite happy to be left alone to his own devices for longer periods of time. That allows for some Timothy-dedicated time which is highly needed right now.

      Timothy is in daycare, otherwise I would have gone insane. Especially the first 10 weeks or so. Now Zachary is finally becoming more interested in the world around him and spends time trying to grab toys etc. Even a couple of weeks ago he consumed all of my times when not sleeping…
