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.Pin It
