auggie is just about three months from turning two, so we’ve decided to start potty training. some people have said it’s a little early, but he’s always telling us when he has to poop, so we figured he’s smart enough to start the process.
every morning, we get up and put him on the potty and ninety percent of the time, he’ll go poop. if he doesn’t, we’ll try again about ten minutes later and that usually does the trick.
the hardest part of potty training is definitely going to be teaching him to pee on the potty. knowing when you have to poop is pretty easy, but i think knowing when you have to pee is a little more… nuanced.
i think we’re going to buy him underpants this week or next. i’ve heard that the immediate wetness (unlike in a diaper, cloth or disposable) will teach kids to understand the feeling right before they pee.
fingers crossed this all works quickly. i am so tired of diapers!
