Deacon began potty training this week. Yikes! It wasn’t even my idea, it was his teacher’s idea. His teachers have been hinting around at pull-ups and potties for a while. Last Friday they said, “Bring underwear on Monday because we’ll begin potty training.”
At first, I was like, hmmmm…shouldn’t I be telling you when to start potty training? But they seem to know what they are doing, so we just went with it.
Long story short, here is what I’m doing and it actually worked today. When we get home, I put him in a diaper (not pull up, just a diaper). But I take him potty every 30 minutes. Tonight, TWICE he told us he needed to go potty and actually went and had success!!! One thing I did was buy a special book that stays on the toilet and we only read it on the potty. This keeps him on the toilet long enough to actually go. He keeps his diaper pretty dry.
The diaper is mostly for my sanity. I don’t like him peeing on the floor. So, we had the best day so far today and I’m just going to keep doing what works for us. Even if it isn’t in any book.
here are some random pics from my iphone…
