3 Day Potty Training
Several months ago I read of 3 day potty training and loved the sound of it. Like ripping off a band-aid and getting the pain over quickly, being able to get the basics down in 3 days versus several months sounded amazing.
Last Tuesday we started our 3 day potty training. He sported a bare rear-end and we played in the kitchen all day. Following the timeline and advice in this book, I was thrilled at how simple the concept was and how well it worked.
I wouldn’t ever say it was easy, day one was horribly wet and tiring, but it got better by day 2 and day 3 was even better. The method worked! In 3 days my (almost) 17mo old was able to grasp the basics of being potty trained.
At home he does well, while out and about I tend to be sidetracked and don’t pay as close attention to his signals resulting in leaks, but no puddles since day 2. 🙂
No more diapers during the day, 🙂 I’m stripping our cloth diapers, and sizing them down for little one. I’m still putting him in 7th generation sposies that I get for really cheap from ePantry for naps and nights and he doesn’t always wake up wet.
We will probably tackle night training later, but for now I’m happy to be done washing cloth diapers for a few months. 🙂 This is the book I referenced and I cannot recommend it enough for toddlers in the younger age range!
I’m sure accidents will still happen at times in the future and I don’t really consider him fully potty trained until he can take himself to the potty and wipe without help. But that could be years. For now I’m thankful to be done with the diapers.
Living Proverbs 31 Linkup and Features:
The first post I wish to feature comes from The Long Way to Go. I love how she talks about spending time in the kitchen with a master chef.
Since hanging out with a real chef would be amazing for me, I was instantly intrigued by her post title and clicked through to read. It went in a slightly different direction than I expected but I loved it! I highly recommend her post as an encouraging read.
Secondly I found a great post from Encourage Your Spouse. Your spouse needs you, are you there? These are all things I know, but like most topics it was good to revisit it and refresh my mind on being a better wife.
An inspiring post to encourage a better marriage.
