I’ve been thinking about starting potty training and I know day cares always support and try to help! But I’m worried that if I take a 3/4 day weekend to really try and nail it in, will it all go down hill when he gets to daycare? They have 10 other kids to worry about, not just my sons pee schedule. What was your experience? They have those little (but real) potties in his classroom, should I... More
I have a new job and am going to be working outside the home now which brings the struggle of finding daycare. My stepson is 5, autistic and not potty trained. I am having issues finding a childcare facility that can take him because he is in diapers at 5. What alternatives or solutions has anyone else found for this issue? We have tried potty training and it stresses him out because he doesn... More
When you potty trained your kid and you had to travel (say short trips to the mall etc 45 min-1 hr), what did you do when the child said they want to pee and the car is still in motion and the child is not in diapers because you don’t want it to regress? I will be buying a travel potty but the first trip after potty training will be my dread. I’ll also make him go potty before the trip. Any oth... More
I have a 2 year old who is staying with a nanny currently during the day. I am trying to put her into a Montessori or a day care. I am not sure what are the pros and cons .. please help
How do you deal with a child at night that says he is scared, faking crying, and delaying bed time by 30-40 mins? Need help. My husband and I don’t agree on the right plan of action to deal with these behaviors. I say to leave it alone and don’t go in at all after reading and saying goodnight. He thinks to go in multiple times and try to console him until he falls asleep. Any advice?
Hi everyone, so my daughter is 21 months and is fully potty trained while at home during awake hours. When she’s at school she’s doing well but is required to wear a diaper so she has more accidents. My plan is to start now with trying to get her trained when we’re not at home or at school. She will almost always tell me she has to use the bathroom but the one time I took her to a public bathr...

My 29 month old girl is potty trained but doesn’t say, just uses actions and it works. What I want is for her to learn to climb potty using a tool and bring her pants down herself and possibly wipe herself. Become independent at least at home. I’m not sure if it’s all possible at this age?! I don’t want to mess up her progress
My three year old boy does great during the day but I’m at a loss for nap and bedtime. Some days he wakes up dry from both other days he is soaked. I limit liquids but I’m just not sure what else I should be doing?! During the day he can hold his pee for like 6 hours. His pedi told me that if he isn’t using the potty every 2-3 hours that when he is sleeping his muscles just kind of let go, I th... More
My son likes to flush the toilet and that is it. He only sat on the toilet once. He didn’t pull his pants down. He just sat and went in the diaper. I was told I should put regular underwear on and he will get the idea. I should also give him a treat when he does use the bathroom. It’s been really hard more so because he is autistic. Any tips?
My 3yr old daughter is SUCH a picky eater. She basically lives off of chicken nuggets and peanut butter. Anybody have any grand ideas on getting a picky kid to try a fruit or veggie. I’ve tried smoothies, I’ve tried hiding them in things ... I am at a loss.
So I read the Oh Crap book after I saw it recommended on here, but in practice I don’t think it’s a good fit for my family. So what are the other ways to potty train? You put them on the pot every hour and give them candy if they go? How long do you wait to see if they go? Pull-ups or underwear? (My mom says use pull-ups at least the first week, but he already wears them because he’s big and ... More
I am going crazy! My daughter is over 2 years old. We started potty training 6 months ago and she showed interest in the potty. She’s pooped, peed multiple times and on occasion will tell us that she has to go. That was through the pull up method. About 1-2 months ago, whenever she was home, we would have her in panties so she could feel that she peed. If you ask her where she goes poop and pee... More
