Potty Training – Successful!

Here comes the part which I don’t exactly like – Potty Training,lol. I have a 3 year old who is just starting so it’s training time. I didn’t experience this with my eldest coz he has a bladder and bowel incontinence so he’s been on diaper since birth. And this time, boy what an experience! lol..

At first we tried it directly in the toilet bowl with Diego (of Dora Dora), a gift from my sister (Thanks Ate) but it wasn’t successful. We waited and waited until he got tired and wanted to be put down from the throne,lol.. I think we need to put some kind of curtain or roman blinds because I think he was just shy at that time.

Just yesterday, using a gift from my sister in law (thank you!), he finally did it! My hubby armed with the baby wipes and me with the camera, jumped for joy and can’t stop saying “great job!” to our son.. I think we won’t be needing the curtain

Only last quarter of 2010, we slowly weaned him from drinking in the bottle and in wearing briefs and now this. What could be next? Teeth wiggling?

These are the moments I treasure because I know soon he’ll be off to pre-school and less bonding time when he’s in grade school. Eventually my boys won’t be boys anymore so I’m taking as much pictures as I can to record their growing up and achievements. I’ll be in my 50s in a few years and I’d like to reminisce about how we handled parenting and if my children enjoyed their childhood.

I know there will be more trainings to come, though some of them would be back breaking for me, I’d gladly do it so my kids will growΒ  better and God fearing individuals.

How did you handle the potty training of your kids? I’d like to hear some ideas that I may be able to use it too.. πŸ™‚

  4. When I potty trained Faith, she was only 1 year old at that time. I put her to the throne like first 10 mins then if she can’t do it yet I extend it until 20 mins. Slowly she began to learn how to make a do, patience lang talaga girl minsan nga sabi pa niya,. oras na Ma. kasi inoorasan ko talaga until na sya na lang talaga mag sabi na po po siya. While sa training niya, I always told her to tell me when she want to pooh. Minsan inoobserbahan ko talaga siya especially when she made that face na parang gusto niya mag popo, I immediately sent her to the comfort room and minsan after two hours sa meal niya or first thing in the morning.

    1. Ang galing naman ng baby mo.. My son already knows if he wants to poop too.

  5. malapit na ring magpotty training ang little baby ko. she already knows when she has the urge to pee and poop so i think she’s already ready.

    good luck sis.

  6. Oh boy! I am still at this, I’m afraid. I have a baby girl who is now 2 yrs. and 7 months old. Our potty-training is like a light switch that goes on and off. At times, I can see and feel that she is ready. But when we start to potty-train, she just protests. I am banking on my mother-in-law’s arrival from the US pretty soon, so she can be the one to “train” our Maia. πŸ™‚

    1. Just don’t force it sis or she’ll get a phobia whenever she sees her potty seat.

  7. naku mommy E…i have a 4 year old nephew, until now ayaw gumamit ng potty. he knows how pero hindi namin maturuan kasi ayaw talaga…btw, i have an award for you here.

    1. Ay so late na yan sis ah.. Bka mahirapan na kyo itrain yan.. Thanks for the award sis πŸ™‚

  8. Congratulations! I have a two year old and we just started introducing her to the potty. It was a gift from her godparents on the day of her Christening 2 years ago. Still no success, I guess she’s too early or she’s not just ready yet. I wish I could train her already so we can save on diapers.

    1. Hi. The potty training should start at around 1 year old. My sister in law trained her kids at 8 months. Goodluck on yours πŸ™‚
