Potty Training: Update
Ok, since we have passed the two week marker We will just do some updates here and there instead of daily. Everyone is doing ok. There are still successes and still accidents. With potty training all three at once, I think we are doing good. I went into this thinking “It will be rough but after a week or two they will have it down.” Perhaps I was a bit unrealistic about it. Training younger does take a little more time, as I also think potty training more then one child at once takes a little more time too.
I am glad we are doing it though and they are definitely getting the hang of it. This weekend was bad though. I hurt my back on Fri and by Sat morning I couldn’t move without horrible pain and spasms in the muscle. I ended up having to go to ER Sat morning. They gave me a bunch of medications and by Sunday I was able to move around a little. Needless to say, since my husband isn’t comfortable with potty training, the kids spent the weekend in diapers, which is another small set back but we will recover from it. We are doing the Gerber underwear with plastic coverings and fully clothed now. I am still offering/ having them “try” to go every hour on their potty chairs. So fr this morning it is going pretty good. I even have them coming to me if they have an accident or need to go which is another step in the right direction. We will only being doing diapers at naps and bedtime. I will be writing up a full article on our potty training with some tips and helpful advice that I have learned along the way. I will also do spot updates to keep everyone posted on our progress.
