Re: HELP! Potty Learning!

We are pl'ing our 3-year-old right now.

I kept insisting that he wasn't ready and I wasn't going to push him. Well, my mom put him in underwear when she had him for the day and he's only had a few accidents since (this was two weeks ago). I was afraid to do undies, but I think that alone is helping him remember to go pee pee in the potty.

It's not foolproof though...he peed on my living room carpet after lunch. I ran him to the potty where he pooped...first time without me pleading with him!

We've been using a little bribery: he's been earning small toys for dry days and for trying to do poopie on the potty. He did NOT get a prize for peeing on my floor.

GL! I can't wait until we are through this process!
