So, my little Jasper is now not far off being 3 (3 in February) and he is not a big fan of the whole potty training. We have potty’s all over the house and as I like to try and approach everything with a suitable head I’ve tried most things. So, I started with leaving it everywhere (yes, everyone who comes round will tell you there is a potty all over the house). Secondly, praise – lots of it. Including clapping and cheering myself for doing a wee on the toilet (I loved this bit). Lastly, I’ve tried rewards, bribary and even getting a bit stern, but alas, my little boy will not put his bum on a toilet or potty.
Since starting, we have had some wee wees and poo poos on the toilet – but it is completely at his choice. I’ve got books and watched youtube (yes, very sad I know) and now what do I do! He is a very intelligent little boy and doing very well for his age – but seems to be choosing to go to the toilet when he wishes (yes, we have had nappy free days, resulting in him holding everything all day!)
So, apart from reside the fact he will be 18 one day with a nappy on, I guess it’s a bit of wait and see….wish me luck!
