Potty-training - All in

Since we had managed to get Little Elvis up to pee-peeing at least 4 times a day -- with encouragement -- I decided last week to go "all in."

Plumbers were coming to put in a new tub faucet and take out some other things, and would be here most of the day for two (make that three) days. Yay.

Since we were going to be stuck at home anyway, I decided to start putting big boy underwear on Little Elvis and putting lots more effort into the potty training.

We began the festivities on Sunday morning. He only peed through the undies a couple of times, and the messes just so happened to be on some of the rugs we had scattered throughout the living room. After lunch, I put him back in diapers for nap and the rest of the afternoon.

Monday, was a different story. We had been through 4 to 5 pairs of undies and several puddles by 10 that morning. (I will not discuss the second poo incident as it made me very, very mad.)

On Tuesday, I was ready to start again, and he only had 2 accidents that morning! He pee-peed several times in the potty. He also napped like a champion that afternoon. And this happened, even with the plumbers in the house. Not the same room, but still, strangers were in our house.

On Wednesday, we had no pee-pee accidents, but we did have one poo accident. He knew he had to go, but refused to sit on the potty. We'll have to work on that.

Wow, I am encouraged by your progress! We haven't really made the full commitment yet, just asking him during the day if he has to go. I think I am afraid of crossing over to a full on potty training attack.

Potty training is so exhausting for parents. I applaud you for trying this while pregnant. It sounds like he's definitely on his way!

Sounds like a good start! It took longer for Svara to poop on the toilet, too, but once she did it a couple times she got over whatever was bothering her about it and now it's no problem. But she still will go in her diaper in the morning if she doesn't feel like calling us to go to the toilet.
