Potty Training

Thanks to my cousin Anissa I now have the information for a 3 day potty training "boot camp". It says that 22 months is the ideal time to potty train a child, so today was day one. I made sure I had all prizes, treats, and underwear ready. It wasn't that bad of a day. Brianna had 11 accidents, all potty, and 3 successful potties on the toilet. She even stayed dry all through her nap and then went potty on the toilet right when she got up. After nap she had quite a few accidents, but she made up for it at bed time. We were all in bed and she got up, called my name, and we went in to the bathroom. She then went potty and her first poop in the toilet. I was so excited!! At this point it was already 10pm, but I had to give her a prize for doing such a good job. So naturally she had to show everyone. This is why no one fell to sleep till 10:30. All in all I think day 1 was a huge success.

YEAH for a successful day 1!!! I am so excited for you guys! I can't wait to hear how days 2 and 3 go. I only hope it works as well for you and it did for us. We've still had some nap time accidents and one or two day time accidents in the past week, but overall my kids are doing awesome. This method really worked for us. Good luck, stay patient and hang in there!
