I am making up my own rules this week on WFMW. Because I need to know what works for YOU.
I have potty trained two kids with relative ease. Basically they potty trained themselves. I know. You can hate me. But I just waited until they were ready and then we tackled it in like half a day.
Oh and they were girls. Simple, pull your pants down, sit on the potty and wipe- girls.
And now I have a two year old boy. And the thought of potty training him makes me tremble.
He is REALLY interested in the potty. He wants to sit on it all the time. In fact I frequently find him with his diaper off (courtesy of him) running amok in the house.
BUT he isn’t talking much yet. And although he is getting new words every week I am not sure he would do a great job at telling me when he had to go potty. Also, while my girls were staying dry through the night at like 15 months, he still frequently wakes up in the night having leaked through his diaper. The little dude pees a lot.
BUT (again) I do realize that this might be a good window to capitalize on his interest and excitement. So I ask (frankly hoping you will all tell me to wait):
Any tips for potty training a non-verbal, not staying dry through the night BOY?
I figure at least it will make good blog fodder and put this tagline to good use.
