Well we started our potty training last Monday and I am proud to report that my little man has just "taken off" with it!
He goes #1 & 2 in the potty - no issues there thank God. He just turned 3 in July so I decided to wait til after the baby was born & when we were done with vacations. I just started him in underwear only (well diapers when he sleeps)...set my timer for 30 minutes...gave/give him a jelly bean or M&M for #1 successes and chocolate milk for #2 successes...Viola! :-) Now we don't always even do the reinforcements...he hasn't asked so I don't give, lol. When he wakes up in the morning, he even takes off his diaper to go to the bathroom before coming downstairs...isn't that wonderful!?
I am a firm believer now that with boys, you are better just holding off til they show they're interested vs. forcing them. Who cares how old they are....as long as their ready, right, lol? Oh and reminding him that he needs to be potty-trained in order to start preschool Oct. 1st, worked in my favor too ;-)
