Murphy’s Law

Darn that Murphy and his law! Everything was going great, we sold our home and moved into a new place. My son was progressing nicely with potty training then suddenly when I am an official Potty Ambassador for Pull-Ups… WHAM my kid decides to put on the brakes and throw potty training out the window.

Yes, I knew we’d be moving prior to beginning the potty training process but never in my wildest dreams did I imagine my child would be impacted like this. I am sad for him, he seems to enjoy his new surroundings but is not sleeping well and is very needy. The last thing he wants to do is sit on his potty chair!

I need to just stop stressing about it. Obviously, he will start using the potty again once he has adjusted and is ready. Next time, I should listen to that voice in my head when it’s shouting “DO NOT START POTTY TRAINING UNTIL YOU ARE SETTLED IN YOUR NEW HOME”.

    Hey Jess, I’m sorry to hear that Cameron isn’t doing too well with potty training. I remember back when I was pregnant with Audrey the pediatricin told me not to make any big changes for Ava for 3 months before or 3 months after Audrey was born. So, I tried potty training Ava about 4-5 months before Audrey was born and it was a no go because she wasn’t ready. So, I then had to wait until Audrey was a few months old before I could try again, and by that time something just clicked and she was ready (although we still have #2 issues). I would suggest waiting at least a couple of months before trying again (unless of course he shows interest before then on his own). Good luck!!!

  2. Potty training Brooklyn has been very hard. Maybe we’re starting too soon. If so, I’ll wait a few months and start again. You would think we would have the hang of it by now, but each child is different.

    Hugs and Mocha,

  3. Well, considering Noah wasn’t really potty trained until he turned 4, and at 7 we still have accidents, I have nothing to offer you, in the form of useful advice anyway.

    Hang in there! They say they won’t go off to college still in diapers…
