Potty Extravaganza Day 2

Day 2 of our potty training.  Jason and I both woke up with a bit of a sense of dread – it was HARD WORK yesterday!  But the morning started out okay.  I think Russell had a total of maybe 5 accidents all morning?  This was a definite improvement!

The afternoon was even better – much better!  Russell woke up from his nap with a dry Pull Up – hooray!  We were completely not expecting that.  Not only that, but he only had one accident from naptime until bedtime!!  Awesome progress!


Things we are still concerned about:

1) Russell does not tell us when he has to go.  He has pretty much just started to hold it until he can’t anymore, and then he has an accident.  I don’t know if you can even call it an accident because he knows exactly what he’s doing.  So, this afternoon we started taking him to the bathroom every so often (which is not what you’re “supposed” to do according to this method, but oh well).  This helped some…but we really want him to tell us when he needs to go.

2) In 2 days, Russell has not gone #2.  Not a good thing.  I know this is common, but we’ve also heard some bad stories about complications from holding it.  I’m going to read up on what we can do to encourage him.

Tomorrow is supposed to be the last day of the intensive potty training.  I really don’t know how intensive we’ll be, since it will be just me (since it’s Monday and Jason has to work).  We may even throw on a Pull Up and head to the Children’s Museum.  Not going to help the end goal of pottying, but it will certainly help with everyone’s morale!
