It's POTTY Time!

At the end of August we began working on potty training/scheduling with Ethan. We weren't in a hurry to start working on this since Ethan can't tell us he needs to go and he can't walk to the potty, but since other kids in his preschool class were working on it, we decided it couldn't hurt to give it a try.




Ethan has really surprised us! Ethan's been using the potty at school and at home for about 2 months now. He averages about 50 to 75 percent success while he is awake, and is now wearing more pull-ups than diapers. He still can't tell us he needs to go, so it is more about scheduling and we give him the opportunity to try typically every two hours. When he is successful we cheer, sing, and celebrate! Ethan claps his hands and smiles. At this time he seems to really enjoy being successful and so we'll keep on taking him.




Since we have done a bit of traveling since Ethan started using the potty, we just take it with us -- have potty, will travel -- has become our motto. Although, we aren't exactly keeping track of all the places that Ethan has gone potty, we are excited that he seems to be pretty flexible and is still pretty successful even when we aren't home.
