Potty Training is Going Well!

Blake has been doing SO GOOD on the potty this past week....
  • He has hardly had any accidents the last few days (except for poo, but I'll get to that).

  • I bet he has over 50 stickers on his pirate hat. I'm so happy we're doing the pirate hat too, because adding that little bit of fun to the pottying routine is keeping it exciting for him!

  • I actually don't have to ask him if he has to 'pee-pee' much anymore because he has been telling me when he needs to go.

  • Up until Sunday he had still been wearing diapers to bed, but all of a sudden he decided he didn't want to wear a diaper anymore! I thought for sure I'd have a mess to clean up in the morning, but I didn't! Yay! Unfortunately I wasn't that lucky last night and his sheets are currently in the wash! LOL!

As you can see, he is doing AWESOME! I'm so proud of him! I don't think I could have asked for it to go any better.

Now, even though he is doing so well, I still have some concerns...

  • Blake went poo on the potty after 4 days of not going and now he is having pooing accidents. I'm not sure how to make him more comfortable about going #2 on the potty.

  • We haven't left the house/yard yet. We still need to see how Blake does going potty somewhere else or if he'll even remember.

  • Of course only one dry night so far is a bit concerning, especially if he doesn't want to wear a diaper to bed anymore. I don't really care to do laundry every day! LOL!

So far so good, though! Hopefully my concerns will end up being nothing and Blake will continue to do better with this whole potty training thing. Keep your fingers crossed for me ;-)

I kept a jar of M&M's on a high shelf in the bath room. When my kids pooped they got 2 M&M's whether they had eaten their breakfast, lunch, dinner or not! My kids are all grown now and our grand-daughter is almost completely potty trained, now. She wears a pull up at night, but no more accidents during the daytime. She likes Cars and I let her pick out her potty seat for Nana's house. It is "cars"....made for boys...but who cares if she uses it, ya know!


Hugs and prayers, andrea

Yay for potty-training! I'm still terrified at the thought of training the boys LOL

Buying a couple cloth night-time trainers might benefit you at this point :) Also, make sure he is getting cut off from food and water at least two hours before bedtime and have him pee right before going to bed - that'll help reduce the wet bed.

There is this book called "everybody poops" that is hilarious. Blake might like it.

I think that most kids have trouble with pooping. It's a private thing. Glad he is doing so well with going pee. I think a Goodnights diaper would be a good idea. I hate doing sheets!
