Potty Training in Three Days – Day 7

Timothy’s diaper was rather wet this morning and he didn’t pee right away after waking up.

He peed later just before leaving for daycare – in the potty.

At daycare, he had one poop accident and one pee accident – but the rest all went into potty.

He still goes long in-between peeing. He holds for a long time. Three hours is his norm, it seems.

At home, he wet his underwear a bit before peeing on the potty. Yes, once again I didn’t take his pants off when he got home, but I should have…

All in all, my understanding is that it’s going rather well. Another mom told me today that potty training’s main goal is to get kids to pee when they want, not when you want them to pee. Her daughter pees if you put her on a potty, but if you don’t – she won’t ask for the potty and would just pee in her pullup. Timothy does decide on his own when he needs to go, he just sometimes gets too absorbed in his activities…

    Phoebe is getting really reluctant to have her nappy changed and comes up to saying poo! Looking delighted. I want to start potty training over the summer but her speech needs to be a bit better I feel. Where did you read about potty training in 3days?

          No, it wasn’t obvious to me at all. I just watched Timothy and each he would start peeing, I’d grab him and put him on the potty – and when something landed IN the potty, clap and cheer. Honestly, after peeing on the floor two times, he got the hang of it and we didn’t have to watch him all the time anymore…
