potty business

I'm sure you all have posted this before but I have been lost for a while in space or something... How are you all going about potty training?

Braiden will go on the potty whenever you suggest it to him, and he will always at least pee, but it's so difficult to catch him before he's done number 2 in his diaper. He will come up after and say "mom, I poop in my dipe" but he won't say it while or before he's doing it... Any suggestions? BTDT ideas?

I'm not sure how many people are actually potty training. We have been with Faith because she has really sensitive skin. For her I had to give her control. I encouraged when I went but did NOT force and then we had her "potty train her dolly". Basically she pretended put her doll on the potty and then praise her and flush the toilet. I had to stop the flushing part. LOL After that it was her deciding she really did NOT like poo in her diaper. She still has a pee accident a day (although she's been on a roll lately) but very rarely has a poo accident. Hope that helps some.

I think they're still young and think the fact that he pees in the potty and knows he pooped is great! Damien just peed in the potty twice yesterday and that's the first time he did it! He doesn't acknowledge that he pooped or seem to care at all to wear a dirty diaper. Many of my friends' boys didn't potty train until 3

Oh and what helped with my boys was leaving them naked on the bottom. When I was a FTM and training for the first time I thought it was a crazy idea but it worked great. They got the hang of it right away. Putting undies and clothes back on was another learning process, but it's helped them understand. Eli was trained fully in 48 hours (when I could actually put pants back on). And Dakota although he had less accidents than Eli (who only had 2) took much longer to put pants and undies back on (like 2 months). Faith this did NOT work. So the same method might not work with each kid. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Cooper has only peed once on the potty. Last night he took his diaper off(he had no pants on) and he peed on a box.:rolleyes:

If you ask him if he wants to sit on the potty, most times he says no. And he also doesn't seem to care about having poopy pants.

I'm hoping that once Sierra is off school, and our weather is a little nicer (ie. he can go without pants and be outside lol) then we can try harder.

However I also just bought 2 cases of Pampers and 3 Diaper Genie refills today. They were on big sale Smile Oh well, there's always my niece Smile

I can't help but laugh at the box incident. That was how my boys were too. Just shows you every kid is different since Faith his the opposite.

The good news for all is that it will happen eventually. They won't be in high school or college and still needing their diaper changed.

We might be starting this weekend

We've had the potty for several months and talk about it to him and showed him how to use it. Up until last week 90% of the time he would run screaming NOOOOOO if we asked him to sit on it. And the 10% of the time he would agree he would flip if you even suggested taking his diaper off to have him sit bare bottomed.

Then we turned a huge corner over last week for absolutely no reason at all. One day we asked him and he just said yes? And then he sat and he peed for the first (and only time so far). But now every time we ask he agrees and sits and even tries.

So we're planning on doing the naked thing this weekend with him and we'll see how that goes.

Good luck. It worked great for my boys. Let us know how it goes.

Jacob keeps showing signs and then stopping, every now and again (almost always when we are in the car) he tells me he has to go poop but if i ask him he will refuse and get mad. So its hit and miss. I'm not pushing it yet but im encouraging it where possible.
Maybe I'll try the naked thing as we are home most of the time. I just dont want it on my sofas lol

I would say Randy is about 90% poop trained (rarely has accidents, only with diarhhea) and about 75% pee trained. He pees a little everytime before he tells us.
