Thank You Tara for being available to help us host Toddler Talk this week!
This week’s topic is :
Let’s talk pee & poop, folks!
When Brock was still a toddler, we knew that he would be fairly easy to potty train. I waited until he was ready & we would put him on the toilet when he had certain tells. For example: whenever he had to poop, he would always run behind the recliner, squat down & poop. It only took a few times of that before I learned that that was his “spot” & if he headed in that direction, we would run to the bathroom. Whenever we were outside, he would just pull his pants down & go pee. Boys are so easy! They don’t have to worry about copping a squat or peeing on their shoes. Unfortunately, Brock still wears a pull-up at night because he is thirsty all.the.time. He drinks so much fluid in a day & combined with the fact that he is a heavy sleeper, rather than changing his sheets ever morning, he is still in a pull-up.
Adrianna is . . . well . . . we are working on it. She HATES when her diaper is wet & she will shove her hands down her diaper & tug at it. If she poops, she will (usually) come to one of us & say “owie” which, sadly, stemmed from all of her antibiotic-induced diarrhea episodes when she was having chronic ear infections & was constantly on antibiotics.
Anytime Adrianna does pee or poop on the potty, she gets an M&M. She knows that in order to actually get the M&M, she has to do something in the potty so she will sit there & grunt & pretend to go to the bathroom & hold her hand out and proudly say, “M!” Luckily, we never fall for it but man, oh man, does she get mad if she doesn’t get her candy!
When Brock was itty bitty, we bought a toddler training toilet that sang & lit up & clapped.
He loved it!
But he would never pee or poop in it.
So we got rid of it & just had him go on the regular toilet. That seemed to work so we are just going to continue doing the same thing with Adrianna. Hopefully it will work!
