Don't Want To Jinx Myself, BUT...

I think it is safe for me to say that Jack is potty trained! Woohoo! We are on week 3 of wearing only big boy underwear during the day, and he has even been dry overnight a few times! We are still working on going in public toilets (they flush too loud - Kate had the same phobia), and I still have to be diligent about watching for signs of #2 so we make it in time. Still, 95% of the time he lets me know when he has to go. We have and will have the occasional accident for a bit longer, but I think diapers are now a thing of our past! Woohoo again!

That is fabulous!! Josh too is making progress! He has been dry in the mornings for a month or two and only has the occasional accident (today being one of them) but I am too scared to give up the pull ups! (Also, he's NOT telling us when he has to poop)...It will come I suppose. Hooray hooray for the big boys!!! All that worrying on my part for no good reason!

Way to go, or rather, way not to go Jack!

How was the experience for you vs your daughter? I too have an older potty trained daughter. My son is only just 2, so I have no plans to train him now, but I'm wondering about the boy vs girl thing and the teach them standing vs sitting thing. Any tips?

I didn't think it was that much more difficult to train a boy... except for the spray factor! LOL Jack trained just a few months older than Kate. Our biggest challenge for Jack was to get him to pee the first time. Once he did, he got the rest easily. A few of my tips -
- Let them get used to the potty by sitting on a portable one in front of the TV or bringing the DVD player in the bathroom
- Let them run around naked from the waist down when at home
- Don't use pull-ups, just move them straight into underwear and deal with the accidents
- On a day at home, give them LOTS to drink and have them sit on the pot every half hour.
- For #2, give them something like prunes to make it easier and necessary to go

Hope that helps a little!

The writer is totally right, and there is no skepticism.
