So my 2 year old daughter has just recently wanting to sit on the potty. She has a a little potty that sits on the floor and one for the big potty. Both she is ok with sitting on. She does great sitting on them but she doesn’t go in the potty. Any suggestions on how to get her to go in the potty?
Going to a community festival that will just have portable toilets. Not a fan of those and definitely don’t want to take my 2.5 yr old inside when he has to touch everything in sight. I have the OXO 2 in 1 potty seat that I’m just planning on setting up with a plastic bag away from crowded places. Is it considered public indecency if I were to set up my son on a potty like that without closed... More
My stepdaughter has Encopresis and the doctor had us do a full clean out and follow up with bowel training accompanied by Senna and Miralax regiments. It's been a month and a half and we dont see much improvement. She still doesn't just go unless we make her sit there and actually tell her to push out poop. Anyone else ever dealt with this and at what point did you see improvement if an... More
My boyfriends daughter in kindergarten and she pees herself sometimes how can we stop her from that? She said she didn’t want to go to the bathroom.
So it’s day 2 of being naked. He actually made his way to the potty himself but then squatted in front of it and peed. I know roughly when he needs to pee so I’ll prompt him to sit on the toilet... and make him sit there for 3-4 min before allowing him to get up. And 10 min after that he will have an accident. I feel like he is holding it because he can’t go on a prompt. He just has to go wh... More
I read the chapter on nighttime potty training in Oh Crap Potty Training and I really don’t think it will work out for us very well. My son is like me... a light sleeper. If someone wakes us up in the middle of the night, we are up for several hours before getting tired enough to fall asleep again. Knowing this and what the book recommended to wake our son up twice a night... I think it’s just ... More
So my daughter is almost 3 and is very stubborn and strong willed. It had taken her a very long time to get potty trained and has been doing really good the past 3 weeks. But when it comes to going number 2 she has a hard time. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that she’s scared to go in the potty even though she had before or if it’s the fact that she’s holding it in but she has not gone in now 3 ... More
My 4.5 year old is still wearing Pull Ups to bed at night and I am so over it. What is the best way to protect his mattress while we transition from Pull Ups to underwear only at bedtime? We have a mattress pad that goes under the sheet, but I know I will need more protection than that. Thanks all!
So my first son instantly transitioned from diapers to undies, with no accidents whatsoever.. not even overnight! I was hoping to have him potty trained at 2.5 before my second was born, but he was good to go before turning 3!! My second, I started potty training at 2, but he just loved his diapers, he knew what he was doing just wasn’t ready to let go of the diapers, and again, by 3, he was on... More
My kiddo (turning 3 at the end of the month) has been doing great with peeing on the potty. He typically either tells me he has to go or goes to the bathroom and pees independently. Always in underwear except for nap/nighttime. Poop is a whole other issue- he was really constipated a few months back and ever since then won’t initiate poop. I typically sit him down before his nap and before bedt... More
My 4.5 y/o son has been potty trained since he was three. He was always regular up until recently when he had a few days of constipation which lead to a painful BM and some diaper rash and soreness, possibly a hemorrhoid. The constipation is gone but for the last three weeks he has been afraid to go poop because he thinks it will hurt. So now he holds it as long as he possibly can. It’s becomin... More
Lately my son has been showing signs of potty training readiness. He wakes up dry, hates being in dirty diapers and wet ones sometimes, loves sitting on his potty and can take his clothes off. He hasn't gone on the potty but we did put one in the bathroom for him to get used to. My problem is we have a lot going on so we are not home all day. We are home after we take my daughter to school ... More
