Mission potty training….complete (kind of)
So, I explained in a previous post that I was implementing the potty “bootcamp” training method. It was going well until I went out of town and no one bothered to stay the course so I had to kind of start over when I got back.
Addison is wearing panties full time except at night. The problem is she won’t tell me all of the time when she has to go. I notice this breach of communication if there is a lot going on, if she is hanging with her homies or if we are in public. I try to be proactive but she has had a few accidents.
I am adamant about not scolding her, but reassuring her that she needs to tell me. I see now getting her to tell me every time and then moving on to teaching her to go on her own without my help are the next steps.
She’ll get it. I’ll keep her in panties and pack a bag with a few extra pairs, some wipes, some plastic bags and a few outfits because I refuse to use Pull Ups….and as long as the grocery store and the Goodwill staff has access to a mop and water its all good!!
Now, every mom/dad with a small child needs this contraption that I found in Walmart for about $10.
GENIUS!!! No more dangling over the nasty public toilet. It’s big and covers the entire seat when unfolded. I almost cried when I saw this. Go get you one if you have little booties that need dangling. This has changed my life and it fits right into her little bookbag.
Do you have any tips for me as I try to get her going on her own? If you’re potty training how’s it going? Have you ever seen this little contraption before?
*Nope, I wasn’t compensated nor contacted to blog about this product. I just think its pretty cool*
