Potty Time



Here's the situation...

I DO NOT WANT 3 KIDS IN DIAPERS!

Here's the dilemma... I tried one day of "big boy" underware with Auggie and he only went in the potty ONCE and peed his pants all day long! What do I do!? I need some serious help in the potty training department! I feel like I don't remember this at all with milo? I was thinking of trying some instructional DVD's that would get him "pumped" to go pee-pee in the potty! but I have no idea where to begin?

So if any one is reading this... and you have any helpful ideas, please let me know! I'm desperate! I have about 5 months to get him OUT of diapers! HELP!

Cyndi, I don't know if you remember me, but I was in your ward way back when. Anyway here is some ideas: I got the Elmo Potty Time video, and we had a trophy for them that they got to put up on the potty if they went in the potty, if they missed then we had to take it down, I also did the candy thing where they got candy if they went potty. Some people hate that, but I was desperate, and it freaking worked so I did whatever :). Anyway, hope that helps.--Mel

I just barley poty trained Mckay and the best thing that I did was I went cold turkey. Got rid of diapers competently. I would take him to the bathroom every 15-30mins. I even left my house with out diapers. He had a few accidents but it honestly was my easiest one to train. He got it down within a week!!! Good luck! That is exciting!!!

Hi Cyndi! This is Andrea Flinders. It's been a long time! Congrats on the twins! That is so incredibly awesome for you guys! (We tried one fresh and one frozen cycle a year ago with no luck. So we're trying to adopt.) Sorry to keep getting sidetracked. Anyway, I loved the book "Potty Training in a Day" by Nathan Azrin. It worked pretty darn good for Max.
