for those that asked about our potty training technique here’s what we did:
first of all, i feel highly incapable to write a post on potty training I had no idea what I was doing and wanted to give up after the first day but here it goes.
The first morning I put grayden on the big potty with a little potty seat on top and told him he needed to go potty in the big boy potty and he had big boy undies now and no more diapers. I also let him pick out a toy at Target that he could play with once he was potty trained for motivation!
I set the timer every 15 minutes and he willingly sat on the potty but didn’t go all morning on the potty, only accidents. When he’d have an accident I would run him to the potty and remind him to keep his undies dry and to only go on the potty.
After his first success I paraded around the bathroom like a crazy woman, high-fiving and clapping and giving LOTS of praise!! He was so proud of himself! I also rewarded with candy. (he’ll do anything for candy!)
The next day was about the same; some accidents but more successes too! And every day there was more and more improvement to the point where I don’t set a timer anymore I just make sure to remind him he has big boy undies on and to keep them dry and that he needs to tell mommy when he has to go potty.
He’s doing awesome! He even used a urinal a couple times this weekend! HA!!!
We still have to tackle pooping on the potty and staying dry in bed but we’ll get there!
Potty training is hard! I was so frustrated at first but kept going and he caught on. Hope that helps!
