When we moved into our house 4 yrs ago, DH immediately ripped up the carpets and put hardwood down with his BIL. (we didn't have a kid back then, but we had 7 cats and 3 ferrets)

I refuse to buy any more diapers. He WILL get potty trained while I am on maternity leave. He'll wear underwear if I tell him all the diapers are gone and he won't pee/poop in them unless we are in the car, but still has a problem sitting on the potty on a regular basis. I'm thinking about using the waterproof pads I have and leaving him in underwear overnight too. I figure if he has no other choice, he'll start going to the potty. He'd be potty trained already if I had some help, but my step mom watches him while I work, and "doesn't have time" to help train him. Def getting someone else after I get another job.

Only reason I'm sticking with her for now is because I just got child care assistance set up. I'm just so sick of trying to break habits she keeps creating

my son did that so at first if i knew he had to poop i would put a diaper on him to poop just so he wouldn't get constipated i did that for like 2 days and then i would put a diaper on him when i knew he had to poop but i would make him sit on the toilet i did that for about 3-4 days when i noticed he was comfortable to sit on the toilet and not freak out and the i took a diaper cut a hole in it and would put that on him when he told me had to poop we called it the "Magic diaper" he did that for about a week or 2 and now he does not care about popping in the diaper...i think it worked to well because he has a froggy potty that he potties on but when he poops he will only use his Elmo potty seat that attaches to the toilet

I have the issue some nights too. It's not uncommon! (if that helps - lol)



1. Do you restrict fluid intake at night? If so, how far before bedtime?
2. Do you make a pee right before bed?
3. Do you wake him to pee in the middle of the night?




Also, sphincter control of the bladder can take time. It's not abnormal to wet the bed until 8 years old. I reallllly hope we're not in THAT boat.

I've got myself a three year old (next week) and potty training has been an uphill battle both ways. Lexi's dad is a soldier and just returned home from deployment. Lexi and I were pretty much there on the potty training before Nick came home. I was using "candy dinosaurs" to get her to go potty as an incentive. When that stopped working I switched to .25 for "potty" and .50 for "number two". That worked pretty well for a few days and then the "shiny" wore off. I've learned now that Lexi is three and while rewarding her for learning something useful and valuable is great the way you do it helps. Lexi is much happier getting just simple high fives, hugs and kisses, and good jobs from Nick and I. Call me crazy but I think you should reward your kids for potty training. They did after all accomplish something they couldn't do previously.

How often did you take your LO to the potty when you first started training them?
