potty training day 1

Dash turned 2 in October and I have been wanting to try to potty train him for awhile but he really didn't show any interest in the potty or even acknowledge when he had went to the bathroom so I didn't think he was ready. I had heard about Lora Jenson's 3 day potty training method and decided to try it but was not too optimistic that it would work.

I woke up as soon as Dash did and jumped right into the potting training. We started by throwing away all his diapers - (ok, we threw away like 5 and the rest were moved into Mack's room for when he is bigger) and made a big deal how he was a big boy now. He didnt seem to have to much interest in what was going on - all he wanted to do was watch Elmo.I put on his very first pair of big boy underwear and we waited. The morning wasn't so great - he had numerous accidents and we would rush him to the potty to finish his business. By the afternoon he was catching on and only had 1 accident - he would let us know that he had to pee or had just started peeing and we would go w/ him to the bathroom. He isn't too sure about the toliet and cries while he is peeing but he doesn't fight it. He is alseep in his bed right now only wearing underwear so I am anxious to see what happens tonight. I am assuming that we will be changing his sheets a couple of times but it will all be worth it in the end.

I am excited to see what happens tomorrow and on the 3rd day but I am more optimistic now than I thoought I would be.

  1. I'll be sure to keep checking back on Dash's progress. My Landon is just a few months older, but potty training has been a slow process. I'm curious to see how well the three day training works.
