Friends. The time has come. We are potty training Buddy.
I have done a ton of reading on the topic, attended a potty training 101 class, and asked around…but I feel SO unprepared for this. However, with my husband & I both home all week this week & all of our summer travels behind us, the time was right.
Feeling brave, we stuck him in big boy underwear this morning. Four hours & three accidents later, he had suddenly figured out how to stop the flow as soon as it started so that “accident” #4 was nothing more than two drops on the front of his underwear.
Then, as we got ready to head upstairs for one last potty break before his nap, Hubby saw him do a little dance/jump & asked if he had an accident. Nope. But there it was, a single drop of tinkle on his underwear. But…THIS time when he sat down on the potty, he went!!!! (It’s worth noting, perhaps, that up until this point he has not actually gone to the bathroom on the potty for us. Not even once.)
Now, is my son potty trained? Not even close. But I cannot tell you how amazed I am at how much his little body figured out in one morning!
I’ll check in periodically with updates, what’s working for us, strategies we are trying, etc. but today I need your help!
Please please please share in the comments below & tell me your #1 piece of potty training advice! What has worked in your house??
