Toddler Talk : Potty Training
January 27, 2011 by Leave a Comment
This week’s topic is Potty Training.
I’ve been debating about actually writing about our issues or not because I have no answer to it. But I decided to give it a go ahead.
We are in the middle of potty training – on and off officially. I think we’re always potty training. Just not very successful at it. We have tried a few times switching to real underwear the entire day (not at nap or night), it usually lasts for a couple days at a time and by that time, I’m exhausted.
And my washer can’t keep up fast enough.
Henry’s getting better though – not successful, just better. He now tells me that he has to go – but its
usually always after he already went.
Pooping is actually more successful than peeing around here – everyone I tell this too gets so excited for me because pooping is such a milestone to accomplish on the potty. Not here. Pooping in general is a milestone for this kid.
I can always tell when he has to poop – so he gets sat on the potty. It may take 4 or 5 tries at 5-10 minutes each (this conveniently happens about 3 times a day, during every meal – I’d really like a warm meal one of these days) until he actually will allow himself to do it, but, it usually happens… sometime that day.
Peeing. Well, at least he’s uncomfortable now after he pees and wants to sit on the potty and be changed ASAP. That’s a step, right?
We’ll get there when we get there and until then, I’ll be frustrated.
