day 3 and beyond...
so day 3 did not go as well as I had hoped - he is definetly not potty trained but there has been progess. If he learned one thing it is that he can hold his pee for a very very long amount of time. Last night he peed at around 6 pm and then refused to go before he went to bed at 7:30 and when he woke up at 8 he was still dry and he didnt pee until 10 am. crazy - it is now 5:30 pm and he still hasn't peed again. so we have had no accidents but only for the fact that he is refusing to pee. im tempted to put a pull up on him so he can pee bc i know he has to go.
i dont know why the program didn't work - but he is more aware of his body and does let me know when he has to go. I think I am going to keep him in his underwear at home but maybe use a pullup when we go out because for sanity issues I cannot just stay at home for weeks at a time.
i think part of his issue is that he is scared to pee on the potty - he screams any time that he does it so he is just holding it in so he doesn't have to do it. smart kid i guess. I might buy him this little urinal thing that I saw at babies r us - it probably would be super messy but I think he would use it!
if anyone has any potty training tips or ideas - i am open to any suggestions bc I am done w/ diapers for him so he is going to have to learn one way or the other!
