I can't believe I am even writing a post about potty training. Where did my baby go?
Oliver has been interested for awhile. When I say interested I mean he likes to follow us to the bathroom. He also likes to follow our guests. It makes for some
Like I said Oliver is interested. And he appears ready. However, I don't know if I am. Granted, I really could do without two kids in diapers. But this milestone is big, huge. It means that my baby really isn't a baby anymore. That's a big pill to swallow. I know I need to just get over it and set aside a few days and just do it but the thought of him potty trained makes me sad.
Maybe I'm weird. I am.
We have introduced the potty to him. He has two, the little chair one that he likes to take the 'pee bucket' out of and wear as a hat. And the little seat that goes on the regular toilet. That one seems to be working better. He has sat on it a few times, but never actually gone to the bathroom. Apparently he thinks just sitting on the toilet is going 'poopoo and pee'.
So my question is to those of you who have kids, how did you do it? The whole potty training process seems pretty easy. I've read about letting the kids hang out in underwear for a few days and take them to the bathroom every 15 minutes or so. Has anyone tried that? How did it work? Any advice is welcome and the best way to clean up accidents from a carpet, because I am sure we will have a few of those too.
