Little Man has been dry bar a few random accidents for about 3 weeks now and I am so relieved. I have not enjoyed potty training one little bit I have to admit. Cleaning up poo and wee is not my idea of fun but it had to be done and I am so glad I persevered. We had a couple of false starts and then a total regression but after biting the bullet one day we have been successful.
At one point, Little Man was dry and in pants at home and then at nursery and when we were out he was in pull ups so there was a lot of confusion for him. I think that was my biggest mistake so I decided on one of my days off work to take him out for a few hours, just in pants. I asked him reguarly if he needed the toilet and he was great, stayed dry the whole time. With that success I sent him to nursery that week just in pants and he did really well. From then on we were on the up. He asks to go to the toilet and gives himself enough time. Little Man has just moved into a new nursery room and I was worried this would set him back a bit but thankfully he has been okay.
We are nowhere near the dry at night stage yet but I am so proud of him for picking it all up and proud of me for sticking to it when I really felt like giving up after the hundreth accident.
So there we go, hopefully we are at the end of the potty training journey for now. Look out for our top tips coming soon. Are you potty training?
