Potty Training: Week 2

Thought I would get on and update about the potty training. After over a week of cleaning up messes, I decided that maybe he still couldn't realize when he had to go. I didn't want to go backwards and put him back into diapers, so I switched to Pull-ups. He still does really well if we take him on a schedule so that is what we have been doing. He did tell Tony one night that he had to go, so Tony rushed him into the bathroom and he did go, so that was exciting and promising! He did well back at Gramma's house this week as well. He woke up dry from his nap a couple of days, so we thought that was promising as well:) If you have mention about pooping.....that is because it is still an elusive act that has yet to show up on the potty! So frustrating because he ABSOLUTELY knows when he has to do it! He picks very opportune times to do it as well....during a workout, or when we lay him down for a nap or nighttime, or any other time when he can steal 30 seconds away from us to do the deed. We try to watch him like a hawk too...but to no avail! We will continue to work on things and maybe try underwear again soon....I'll keep you updated:)


  1. Stay positive - he's doing great! It's totally normal that he can't tell you when he has to go yet. It's still very new to him.

  2. Ethan did the same thing! And it's so frustrating! But he will get it! You are doing a great job!!!!

  3. I can't imagine this process..and I'm sorta dreading it. Sounds like you guys are off to a great start. You can do it, Owen!
