Potty Training – 2 weeks on

>Thank you so much to everyone who read my Potty Training diary, it really helped spur me along when I felt like giving up at times and to know other people had similar experiences was very reassuring.

So we are 13 days on from when we started and the Boy is my little superstar, since last Tuesday we have had one wee accident. Apart from that we’ve had 2 days with grandparents, 2 days with the childminder and no accidents at either. I think you can imagine my proud mummy grin each day I hear this. His childminder said “he was a star” – and that’s a direct quote!

He still isn’t asking to go to the potty and he is still in nappies at night (he sleeps with a sports water bottle so that’s got to be cracked first!) but he is doing really well and I am very pleased its going so well.

Will update as and when we get rid of night nappies!

Day Six

>Today was much the same as yesterday, no asking to go to the toilet and always saying no when we asked him, but almost every time we sat him on it he produced. Interestingly a childminder who babysat for us last night said this is very common and sometimes it takes children weeks to actually ask to go so we should just keep taking him when its about time. For the Boy that’s about every two hours. One accident today but it was to be expected given the circumstances – we tried to get him to nap which he completely refuses to do and he wet himself whilst standing at the stairgate screaming “I waking up Mummy”.

We did two outings today so the potty training is becoming less and less restrictive which is great. It actually reminds me of the early days (and what we soon have to come again) when we had to structure our day around nap times.

Here is his chart for the day – my little superstar.
