Yes, my son has been telling me he pooped (for all of you non-Moose speakers out there). We've been sitting him on his potty right when he wakes up in the morning (or most mornings). Today, Big A got up with him as I couldn't drag my butt out of bed (yeah, going to bed early seems to have made me MORE tired). He sat our little guy on the potty, Moose stood up, went over to his diaper in the trash, and peed on the floor. Or something like that (I never have been good at relating stories). Big A seems to think that Moose knew he had to go and knew he normally goes in the diaper, hence picking it up. So ladies and gents, I've come to my big dilemma...
how do you potty train a boy? (or a girl for that matter...but seeing as I only have boys, lets go from here)
Instead of diapers, do I use...
2. Cloth training pants
4. Birthday suit
Which is best? Which do you not recommend? Where would I even buy cloth training pants? What about naps and bedtime? What about poop?
When to sit him on the potty?
1. every 1/2 hour
2. every hour
4. sit his potty in front of the tv
Ok we have the potty watch (not sure if he'll keep it on but I can just sit it somewhere with its timer). It can go off every 30, 60, or 90 minutes. Do I start with 1/2 hour, then move up to an hour and more? And I'm being sarcastic with the tv thing - MIL says she sat her boys in front of Sesame Street to potty train. I'm not about that. Toilets belong in the bathroom in my house.
When does he start standing to pee? How long did it take (I know, I know...every kid is difference but I need something here)?
Any other advice (Angie, I'm hoping you comment after you've done this a few times and have some smart potty advice)??
