Need to shout it and tell how we did it

I was off for two weeks over x-mas. My son who turned 2 on Nov. 30th potty trained in less than a week.
I took his diaper off (no pull ups), took him to the batroom every 40-60 minutes (used a timer), we stayed in the bathroom each time until he went potty. This meant that sometimes we were in the bathroom for up to 1 hour 45 minutes. Books, toys, puzzles, piggy bank, (wine) were all in the bathroom for amusement/relaxation. We did this for three days. Now we take him once an hour all day long. Only about 3 accidents in two weeks.
I hope this helps someone.

  • Thank you ladies. I am so proud of my son for adjusting and myself for having the patience to see it through. Every child and parent is different but I am so thankful that it worked for us.
