Potty Training

My toddler is 20 months old and is showing signs that he is ready for potty training. At the moment, one of his favorite books is The Potty Book For Boys, he gets so excited about the character Henry using his potty.

He watches Elmo’s Potty Time and after the DVD has finished, he will run into my bathroom and clap in front of the toilet. One day, he actually took his pants off and was standing in his diaper while watching it. Perhaps it was coincidence, but this is not typical behavior from him.

For the past week, he’s been running out of his room and grabbing his diaper saying “uh oh”. When I asked him if he has peed in his diaper, he shakes his head yes. It seems that he knows when he has wet or soiled his diaper, I guess the next step will be for him to recognize he has to go before it’s too late.

Anyway, I ordered a potty chair and I’m ready to get started with potty training! People have already told me boys are much harder to train than girls, but I think I’m up for the challenge. I am open to any advice and/or suggestions to those who have gone through it.

This experience will definitely provide good blogging material!
