We signed DD up for 3s preschool at the school where we teach in the fall. She needs to be potty trained. And with baby #2 due soon, we don't want two in diapers for long.
I tried EC with DD when she was really little, and had some success, but she forgot all about it when I went back to work. DH picked up a potty for her a month ago. I finally heard her pee in it last week when I stepped out of the bathroom for a moment. Then I think I screwed up. I was so excited, and rushed back into the bathroom so quickly, that I'm afraid I freaked her out. She started crying. Now she'll just sit on the potty for up to a half hour as long as she's being entertained, but doesn't want to pee, even when she's been dry for hours and it's obvious her bladder is getting uncomfortable. She will pretend to pee, but not actually pee. As soon as she says she wants to go play and we start putting her diaper back on, she asks to sit on the potty again. It's baffling.
Should we keep up with our potty routine and just wait for her to have another breakthrough? Or should we give it a rest? With another month of teaching middle school to go before I can take maternity leave, my patience is fraying. I can't sleep tonight because work and potty training are stressing me out.
