Potty Training!



So after talking to Brian we decided Noah was as ready as he'll ever be to potty train! We decided if we stuck with it and were consistent and he wasn't having it after a week or so then we'd stop for a while and try again.

So yesterday was Day One for us. The day before we went to the store and got rewards for when he went in the potty and we were all set to go! I told him no more diapers and he would repeat it "no more baby diapers" ..it was too cute! So yesterday we got up and I told him again..no more diapers..time to start going in the potty. The morning was a little rough. He would start to pee on the floor and then we would "RUN" as he would say to the potty and he'd sit and sit and wouldn't pee. And then he pooped on my floor! But I didn't make a big deal out of things. Just kept telling him he needed to go in the potty.

So after his nap we started again. After about an hour he started actually telling me when he had to pee! And completely emptied his bladder each time in the potty! He did this three times! I was so proud!

Then Daddy got home and we went outside for a bit. Brian wanted him to have underwear on outside so he didn't get bug bit or anything so we put big boy undies on him! What a disaster!! As soon as he had them on he peed! Put on a new pair..pooped in them!! Every pair he went in!! Even with going to sit on the potty every 20 min! So I'm not so sure how we need to handle that.

But anyways, I know he can hold it and I know he can recognize when he has to pee so we are sticking with it! We are on day two and while we've only been up for a few hours..he still hasn't peed in the potty. Hopefully he'll start to get it again like he did yesterday! Wish us luck!!

  1. Oh he's already doing goof for a starter :-) The most important thing is that he seems to be comfortable about the thought. He didn't make a big fuss on sitting down the potty the first day so that's really really good! Keep it up Noah!!!

  4. Woo-hoo! Sounds like he is doing great! Can't wait until mine is fully potty trained! It's the poop that gets me every time!

  5. Allison was the same way. We had to go commando for a few days before she understood that undies aren't diapers. A month later, she can go days without an accident, but it's still a work in progress.

  6. Good for you and Noah! You can't give up once you start. When potty training my son, stopping for a few weeks seemed to set us back. I think wearing the big boy underwear right away was confusing. He thought they were diapers still and could have cared less about accidents.
    Keep going and before you know it, he'll be going in there all by himself. ;)

  8. Good luck to you. I'm at a total loss for what to do or how to start. My daughter tells me when she has peed and pooped and asks to be changed, but getting her to tell me before...no dice. And she's petrified of the potty. Yikes...
