Little Man is exactly 3.5-years-old and Daddy and I are fighting the same uphill battle every parent goes through – potty training! Little Man hasn’t worn a diaper in about 4-months, but has gone pee in his undies NUMEROUS times in that time span! Cleaning up urine from both child and floor is getting so frustrating! Every time Little Man utters “Mommy, I go potty…” my stomach tightens and I head straight for my cleaner. I refuse, yes refuse to go back to diapers or pull-ups!
To begin the transition from diapers, we just cut back on them, really. Little Man would use big boy underwear around the house, but wear a cloth diaper when we’d go out or while he slept. In like no time at all, Little Man could hold his bladder through a whole grocery trip! That’s when we cut back diaper-usage to bed-time only.
I have to admit, guys, Little Man was doing SO good for a while there. Recently, though, he’s been going potty in his undies more than the big boy potty! I’m constantly asking him if he needs to “go,” but only rarely does he say “yes”. I’m hoping that he gets over this soon and starts going potty in the big boy potty! I will admit, today he’s done good and not gone in his undies at all…. we shall see how he progresses =D
I’d love to know if anyone else is going through this right now and how they deal. How much longer will this last?! LOL
