How long to "practice" before going out in undies?

Ds has been peeing in the potty consistently for about a week now, and finally pooped in the potty today on his own (yay!). We still do diapers for naps/bedtime and for going out of the house. How long after starting to use the potty was it before you took your LO out in undies instead of a diaper?

Re: How long to "practice" before going out in undies?

Pretty soon, because all 3 of mine "got it" really quickly once we found the right time for them to PT. So after, say, PT'ing Monday through Friday, we would take them out that weekend wearing undies. But, here's my biggest tip- for those first few outings, we put on a diaper OVER the undies. So they could still be a "big kid" and have their undies on, but we were protected in case of an accident. I did that for maybe one or two week's worth of outings, they never had accidents while out, so we went to just undies.

Congrats on the PTing progress!

Thanks for the advice mama! I'm considering getting some waterproof trainers for short outings, but they're so darn expensive! Ds is still doing pretty good with the potty, except for when he's tired. Then he refuses to sit on it and cries for a diaper. Overall, I'm very happy with his progress so far!

We haven't caught a poop yet. Sigh!! He does it after he has been in bed a while in a diaper. Grrr

However, we go out in undies have been since about a week after he was peeing in the potty consistently. I just make sure he goes before we leave and when we get we are going if it was a long ride.

Ds has only pooped in the potty once on his own, and I was more excited than he was, lol.
