  • ~able to verbally communicate with you with some words
    ~able to pull up and down pants(not perfectly...just at least attempts,lol)
    ~tells you "poop" BEFORE they poop ... indicating they are beginning to understand what that feeling is
    ~asks for a diaper change when they are wet
    ~showing interest when mommy or daddy use the big people potty

  • "I want to use that weird looking chair in that room like the grownups do"

  • They don't wet their diaper much at bedtime. They tell you when they need changed and they no longer like their diapers wet.

  • my son is 2.5 he stays dry through the night mostly, and during naps. he can physically tell us he has to go to the bathroom and go potty, and he chooses to go hide in the bathroom when he poops.

    all the signs pointed to him being ready. but when i ask him to go potty he cries and begs for a diaper unless its his idea.

    because of that, im letting him tell me when hes ready.
