So we recently decided to start introducing Dru to the potty – no pressure, just want him to get used to it.
We bought a basic potty chair for the downstairs bathroom (since we spend 90% of his awake time downstairs) and give him the option to sit on it whenever he wants. About a week ago, he said “Mama, potty?” to me, so we went in, stripped him and floor bare, and sat him down. He sat there singing “potty potty potty” for a couple of minutes, stood up and promptly peed on his feet. After laughing, and cleaning the floor and Dru, I declared the experience a win – after all, he told me he needed to potty, and then he did. Now we just need to work on location.
Well, Sunday night, we were getting ready for bed and had pulled off his diaper to change him. So we get him stripped and he says “potty?” so Kris and I take him to his bathroom. Now we don’t have a potty in there yet, so I just plopped him on the toilet and held him. He danced and giggled while telling us “wait…” so we did. Then, he actually peed! YAY! He always wants to flush the toilet, so as a reward for going in the potty, we let him flush. It was a good day all around!
So, we’re not quite ready for full-on potty training, but he’s waking up dry more and more and we’ve had a couple of successes, so we’re optimistic!
