He has been waking up dry from naptime for months and he can stay dry for 2-3 hours at a time.  This shows that he has the bladder control to hold it until he can get to the potty. He would go off by himself to poop.  This tells me that he is aware of his bowel movements and he knows when he needs to go. There are lots of signs that a child is ready and each child will show some or all of the signs.  Read here for all them. I have always allowed J to flush toilets if he wanted to so that he learned that it is a safe thing and something he’s allowed to use.
About a week before potty training began, I checked out some children’s books about potty training.  We read them together throughout the week. The week before we started talked about J using the potty like Mom and Dad do and that he will get his own underwear.
Let him pick out his own underwear at the store.  This gives him more incentive to keep them dry. By the end of the day, I was a bit worried that this was a joke and that it would never work. Again, I kept him in just his underwear and a t-shirt, sent him every 2 hours to the potty. That is the last accident that J had.  I’m not sure if it just clicked, or if it was me losing my cool was the trigger, but he finally got it! My goal for the day was to introduce him to the big potty.  I really hate the baby potty (so messy!) and I want him to be able to go on a big potty when we are out and about too.


Later that afternoon all three of us went to the mall to play and then out to eat.  J was able to use a public bathroom without any problems…which makes me very happy!
How I Potty Trained My Daughter in 3 Days – Growing a Jeweled Rose  This is the only post I read about potty training before I started.  She has some great info that really helped me out. 3 Day Potty Training – I did not read this book, but from what I hear it’s great and very similar to what I did with J. Taming the Goblin – This blog has a great series of posts about the successes and failures of potty training.
I was a Mental Health Counselor who worked with children and mothers in both individual and group counseling environments before I became a Stay at Home Mom to two boys. Just wanted to explain that even though I started putting Ernests on the potty so early and we were lucky many times, he has never gone to the potty on his own, never asked for it and he would rather try to escape going to a potty. This will help him feel wet and will make it easier for me to tell when he’s having an accident.  Plus, less laundry!
If a child is wearing a diaper or a pull-up he will use it.  It’s important to stay consistent and I didn’t want to confuse J by sometimes allowing him to not use the potty. This may seem a bit over the top, but by writing down his accidents  and successes I am able to see if he’s improving or if he’s showing any patterns.  Plus, it helps me keep track of the last time he went so I can remind him to go. I’ve heard too many stories about potty training failures and struggles to think that potty training is always as easy as it was for us.
I hadn’t thought of keeping a diary, but it makes so much sense now that I think of it.


Our eldest son is 2 years and almost 2 months old, so I thought lately it was time to start potty training. Last 2 days (except the night) we were not using the diapers but he did not even notice having accidents.
I did not use incentives like stickers or candy because I want him to go because he needs to go, not because he wants an award.  The praising was more then enough incentive.  Kids want to please the ones they love, so I used that in my advantage! Kiddo had some success at 1.5 years old, but he has been recalcitrant for a long time, and then tonight, he did both pee and poo in the potty, so it might be time to start again…like tomorrow!
He has known potty and sitting on it and peeing or pooping in it since the age of 11 because I thought I would at least make hims friends with the potty so that he does not resist sitting on it. When I read all the signs of readiness, it dawned on me why these 2 days seemed were so crazy. You should turn it into a PDF for parents to download, along with all your resources, great job!
