Potty Training-3 day method- *Edit in replies*
Not sure how many of you used the 3 day method to potty train. I got the ebook from a friend and read it. Got my DS3 prepared by offering words of encouragement, telling him he was a big boy, diapers are for babies, phew-yucky, your a big boy and big boys use the potty- for at least a few weeks. So, today we started. My oldest DS8 is off for Thanksgiving break. We do not have anywhere we need to go or be for the next 3 days. I got DS3 excited last night about becoming a big boy and wearing undies. This morning, when he woke up, I got him excited again.
So far, he has only peed in his undies once. He was playing with his brother and had an accident. In the middle of a bowl movement, I rushed him to the potty but we didn't make it on time. Together, we took off the undies "eww and yucky" he said. He helped put the poo in the potty, wipe and flush and clean the undies for the wash. I keep asking every few minutes if he needs to go potty and sometimes he comes to me "Mommy, potty"
So far so good I think. Tonight, may be another story! Lucky his bed has plastic wrap still on it, so all we have to do is change undies, wash up, and change sheets if there is an accident. Today during nap, he woke up dry. We went potty right after he woke up. So here's hoping and crossing fingers this will go great. Older DS8 was really easy to potty train, but also had the help of daycare as I worked a lot. This time around I am a SAHM.
The first time we tried potty traing, it did not go so well. So, we waited a few months, got the 3 day methodebook and now I am trying again. Anyway, thanks for reading how the first day went, and please any suggestions or comments are welcome and apperciated! Just please be kind.
****We are potty trained!!!!! So happy, and it was easier then I thought! He even goes #2. He is not trained at night fully. Some nights he wakes me up to potty, sometimes not. So we have been putting a pull-up on over his undies at night. That way he can still feel he went potty. He is doing great! Even when were out and about, he tells me and find a place to go potty! I am so proud of him. Thanks all for the advice!!!******
