He Just Decided to Potty
I guess I should be thrilled, but I don't even know where to go from here.
I bought a potty this week for my 19 month old DS. I just put it out in the bathroom, figuring he would look at it, but generally ignore it. He immedately sat on it. So I stood him up, took off his pants and his diaper, and sat him back down. And he peed.
He did it twice at bedtime now. He is always agreeable to sitting, and has now peed thrice.
He is not talking at all (outside of "Mama," "Dada," and "bubble"). He is tall enough to sit on the potty on his own. He definitely pees at night. A lot. And frequently wakes up at 5am to poop.
I'm wondering what my next step should be. I am thrilled that I may not have to commercialize it (Elmo's Potty Time dvds, etc), or offer a bunch of bribes (don't get me started on the menagerie of stuffed animals my almost-3 yo niece is being given to potty).
I think I just want some of the DS mamas' about potty learning.
