Potty Training...I think


So Rayle is about 5 months away from being 3. I have not dared try to potty train him because like Teagan, he has no interest. Why push them, when they are ready then they will make the decision. So lately Rayle has been taking off his diaper and going into the bathroom and going potty. He has done it a few times, again with no pushing from us. He goes and we praise him. Well last night we get home and he announces he is poopy, but actually he had gone in the toilet. He was so proud of himself, with a big smile on his face. Today he announced again he need to go poopy and he made it half way. Some was in the diaper and he finished up on the toilet. Teagan was 3 1/2 when he finally got sick of diapers so if Rayle continues and is potty trained before he is 3 I will be thrilled. I can start buying newborn diapers and stock up which I will do anyways, but to only have to buy one set of diapers would be nice. So we are not pushing and letting him do it on his own, I love this route because then I don't get stressed. So we will have to wait and see. Besides he looks so stinken cute in his undies!!!

You are such a patient parent. I was so tired of having two kids' diapers to change that I could not wait for Spencer to be potty trained. I hope he does really well and soon you won't have any diapers to change for a while.

I think you are so wise to let him do it on his own terms. With all the praise and the cute big boy undies he'll get over those diapers pretty quick!

That potty training stage is soooo hard but so worth it at the end! I wouldn't want to change 2 sets of diapers either!
