Potty Training – Week 2

We are into week #2 with potty training Child #3. After two days with no success, we ran into a string of great days (5-7) with one or no accidents. There was only one snag. This child would wait until I put her into a diaper for the night and then poop in it.

By the time Day 8 came around, she couldn’t always hold the poop until the night diaper was put on, so we’ve had a string of days with poop in the underwear. In fact, last night she pooped twice in her underwear within a span of about three hours. She has YET to poop in the potty. She is doing well with peeing in the potty – although she averages about one (peeing) accident a day still if I don’t remind her to go periodically.

She is usually dry come morning, although if she drinks a LOT of water and then stays up for an hour or two, she has been known to be soaking wet around 10 p.m. She doesn’t yet want to actually get up, go to the bathroom, take her diaper off, pee, and then come to me to get the diaper put back on. This is not a big deal at this point.

So, I would say she is 1/3 potty trained as we end day 11 of this saga.
