When your kid grabs his crotch and says “go potty, eeew!” right as he’s peeing, you’d think that’s a sign that it’s time to potty train right?
Progress is up and down (ok I haven’t really been trying very hard) but I’m trying to take it at his own pace. Big T seems to be a bit scared of the toilet right now. But despite my previous disgust for them, he happens to love his portable potty chair.
I think next month we’ll buy his first pair of training pants. Once we got Lil’ J a pair, she potty trained in a jiffy. All we had to do was tell her Cinderella would be sad if she peed on her and she made it a point to make it to the potty.
Big T on the other hand, I doubt will care who is on the front of his underpants. Is it a boy thing? A personality thing? It was so easy with my daughter and I already feel behind with my son. He’s already messier (his hands have been in the toilet more than anything else), and it seems like it could be quite the disaster.
Then again, he just turned two in April. There’s no real need to rush. Especially if it’ll hinder progress more than help.
I also think my husband should play a bigger role this time. He was convinced he’s suppose to pee standing up, but I told him that’s not how toddler boys learn. Oye!
As much as I love to cherish the phase we’re in, I must say I can’t wait to be done with the potty training.
All of the pit stops and cleanups. It’ll be nice to make it through this and leave the diapers behind.
Wipes however, will still come in handy. I think I use baby wipes come in handy for much more other than just wiping baby butts.
My kiddos helped me make this video showing some of our favorite uses of baby wipes.
So even when we make it through potty training, our Seventh Generation Free and Clear Baby Wipes will still be quite useful. But until then… Pray for me and share your potty-training tips (especially for boys).
What handy ways do you use baby wipes? Have any potty-training tips for me?
I got lots of great responses in the comments! Check them out as you make it through your own potty-training journey!
