I wish I could talk to his ped about this because I don't know what is normal or not anymore. But alas, we don't currently see anyone (long story) -- I am looking for ALL the help and tips and advice you can give me!
PLEASE!!!! THIS MIGHT BE A BIT LONG BUT I NEED HELP!
My son is 3. We have attemped potty training twice now with no luck. The first time being last December and the next being this past summer. I don't want to put this off anymore, I don't want to end up with a 5 year old who is not trained.
I feel like I have tried everything. So I am starting back at SQUARE ONE. For him and for me. He has potty seats and he has those potty seats that sit on the big toilet. I am going to buy him a bag of goodies (dollar store treats and toys) -- more than I have before. Stickers just aren't cutting it anymore.
Ok so our number one problem is: I am sure he ENJOYS the feeling of pee.
When we first started, he did AMAZING! He got stickers every time he peed and had hundreds it was like in the first week or two. Then he just would pee in his undies and not tell anyone. Or he would, but time after time after time again he would just pee. Like he liked it!
I realized he does for sure because recently he's been getting attached to his pullups being soggy. If they get wet and I go to change him he will sometimes FREAK OUT. He screamed for an hour Thanksgiving night because he wanted his old/wet pull up back on and not a new one.
So... we need to get the ball rolling. Anyone have clues or advice about his love for wetness?? Should we just try it 100 percent bare butt for a few days? HOW long? What about night time and car rides? I have kept him in pullups every time for night time but not sure I should???
I need help. Why why why is this SUCH a long and bad process for? I want it to be easy and fun! LOL!
