For a while now Little Miss has been doing fairly well with telling us she had to use the potty and she would hold it too. With less and less wet diapers (minus bedtime and nap time), her school thought it would be a great time to start. They were right or at least we thought so!
We started her in big girl undies except for night and nap time. She did awesome! Had a #2 accident because for some reason LM hasn't thought about the potty for that yet and only one #1 accident because she was playing with her cousin that night.
Since she was home with me, I put her in her undies once she woke up after using the potty. She had two accidents that day, both being #1. One is when she was sitting next to me on the couch while I worked on my laptop. I was an innocent victim for that mess too. I felt the warmth and knew exactly what had happened. LM didn't seem to notice. The other time was when she was sitting on the floor in front of me, I was still working. She got up and said PeePee, so you know what happened. Crazy part was that both times happened after I had asked her whether she wanted to use the potty. Her response every time I asked her that day was "No". By that time it was nap time, so the diaper went back on and since she had a doctor appointment and gymnastics that night, it stayed on.
Again, she was home with me. Again her undies went on after waking up. For some reason I have no clue what happened that day. I swear my child has taken my memory.
Little Miss returned to school. From their daily report she had a #2 accident and maybe one #1 accident.
Daily report had a #2 accident. Sent home in diapers. Once home she never asked to use potty.
Before nap time she had three #1 accidents, not once asking to go to potty and I checked in every half-hour or so to which she responded with a "No". Diaper was put on the rest of the day and night. She may have gone once in the potty when we asked her.
Diapered in the AM. Did not ask to use potty. Afternoon, undies were on and she had a #1 accident. Immediately right before her bath, she had a #2 accident. Poor Papi had to clean it up, it was everywhere LOL.
Diapered to go to school and changed to undies around 10. She had a #2 accident and it appears that was her last accident of the day at school. Just after asking her if she had to go once we were home, she had a #1 accident. She was bathed and diapered for the rest of the night.
She was diapered all day. She didn't want to wear her undies and she really didn't want to use the potty. She did use it before bed but that was it. Hubs and I decided to back off a little bit with her to release some pressure I am sure she was feeling. And just so I am clear, we have not yelled at her for her accidents. We just speak to her and remind her where she has to go to the potty.
So as you can see, we had a bit of an up and down experience so far. We are not quite sure what has changed her excitement about training. Beforehand, she loved telling us she had to go because she loved her treats (and still does) but she just doesn't want to do it. At least that is what she is like when she is home. Even when she was excited, I wasn't asking her on a consistent basis, she would just go when she wanted to. She enjoyed the praise and at times didn't even want her treats. We thought we were going in the right direction.
Anyone else experience this with their little one?
