Except he isn't. Not even close. He won't even go near the thing!
We have 2 little potties
which I've decorated with wall decals from the dollar store
I have also gotten him one of those little seats that go on the regular toilet
and even put a car sticker on the top of the main-floor bathroom toilet lid. No go.
I just don't think he has any interest as he does not even really have control yet. If he pees in the bath he always kind of looks confused, like he doesn't know what's going on...?
And when I put him near any of the potties or the toilet, he screams and cries and carries on. There are obviously children at my daycare that are his age or younger who are almost completely potty trained (maybe some Pull-ups at nap time or if their mom is taking them for a long shopping trip) and they are doing awesome. I ask them frequently if they need to go potty and if it's been a few hours, I might set them on one even if they say 'No." I've learned the hard way about that (last week I had two girls piss all over my floor and one of them shit themselves in their sleep and got a pee/poo mixture all over one of the daycare beds--yikes). But, overall, great.
I am not pushing Jack and not going to worry too much about it.
Over the Christmas holidays we got rid of his "Lula" (soother/pacifier) and we are now working on losing the baba (bottle) which he is pretty attached to still. So, we have other fish to fry, as they say.
But, I'll for sure keep ya'll posted and if you guys have any tip or tricks for me, please let me know.
It felt like Ava (my 5 year old) took forever to train but it was not long at all (what was I worried about?) She was for sure in Pull-ups by now and hardly ever having accidents. I started at 18 months with her and although it was slow-going, by 2 she was pretty well potty trained and by 2.5 she was good-to-go with no accidents or anything. We rewarded her with a sucker, we had a star board every time she went on she would get a sticker and she loved this book:
Good luck to all you potty-trainers out there and maybe this post from Cup of Jo might help you too?
