Good job Adair.
I have not changed a poopy diaper in weeks.
Most days, I send Juliet back to daycare with the Pull-Up she came home with. I take it off as soon as we come into the house.
She had one accident on Sunday.
Her daycare provider offered me to put her into undies during the 'classroom time'.
Yesterday, was the first day and she wet three sets of clothing.
Today, she came home in the same outfit as this morning. I don't know how much time she spent without a diaper. However, the daycare provider that had her at the end of the day, said she came to her class commando style. The poor lady had not noticed until she took Juliet potty. There were no accidents.
Juliet wakes up dry, but does not stay for long. If I don't get her right away, she pees her diaper and usually leaks.
Ugh--another afternoon poop fail! It's been like clockwork this week! She's been getting through the day and night otherwise just fine, but HAS to ruin it with an afternoon poop in the pants (even after sitting on the potty, yes). SIGH. We came in from outside as a consequence, which she was quite upset about...we'll see how it goes (that's twice now).
Sounds like Juliet is doing great! Addy had four accidents her first day at school in panties, but adjusted pretty quickly. Pullups were a complete waste of time for us--she can't actually pull them up or down, or get her pants up and down over them, and they feel and act like diapers, so...they were just more expensive diapers. Putting her commando in leggings and now in loose panties was a big enough change to help her make the leap. I just wish I'd done it sooner!
Is she having the poop accident because she doesn't want to go inside? When we first trained Ethan I'd have to remind him that if you need to go poop, go poop and then you can come right back outside!
Well, yes, and that's what we're getting at with the "small, immediate consequence" of stopping/taking away whatever it was that she was doing when she chose to poop in her pants instead of taking a potty break. It's supposed to help her learn to understand that just stopping to poop for a second is way less trouble than ignoring it and losing your toy/activity for an hour or whatever.
I know she knows how to do it, before she started PT at school she used to stop even in the middle of really exciting things like playing hide and seek to go poop on her own! She's just gotten it into her head for whatever reason that she can get away with pooping in her pants without much consequence now, and to her that's easier, so she's gotten lazy about it. So we're seeking to give her a little extra motivation, since she clearly doesn't care about the gross feeling of it or any natural consequences like that. Although yesterday she was also upset to lose the orange skirt she had been wearing, so that was a bonus lesson.
sounds like you're almost there! Keep it up mommy!
