Potty Training Blues

Follow Me on Pinterest

Several weeks ago W came home from church and declared:

“J is a baby. He wears diapers. I’m not a baby, I don’t wear diapers. Give my diapers to B (a little boy at church).”

“That’s all very well, ” I said, “but no diapers means you have to stay dry and go potty in the potty.”

The next week, the two big children had a day camp all week so I was able to concentrate on potty training. Peeing went great, bowel movements not so much, but I’ve always known he’d have trouble with that as he has some issues unless I give him a LOT of fiber.

We progressed from underwear at home and pull-ups when out to underwear everywhere except in bed.

And then yesterday he went through TWELVE pairs of underwear! TWELVE!

So discouraging…I got frustrated and put him back in a diaper.

Today is a new day though and some of those accidents were him almost making it to the potty but not quite. We’ll try again.

  1. Clementine (almost 3.5) has been potty trained for nearly a year, and she still has spells of peeing in her pants. I’m not talking about one accident, but about three accidents in one day. It’s very frustrating. I would love to have Charleigh (almost 2) trained by the time the baby gets here in Nov.; we’ll see. Best wishes to you!

      I’m thinking it’s about time to break out the incentive chart. I think I’ll make a quick trip to the dollar store when I run errands this week….For Su it was pink hair ribbons, I’m thinking about trucks for W…K
