Sibling Potty Time!
Sunday, July 6, 2014
I am happy to report that Brayden is pretty much completely potty trained! It was not too bad really. I wasn't sure if he was ready or not since he doesn't turn 3 until October, but summer was my only time to really attempt it b/c once school starts back up I will be too busy. Kaitlyn will have preschool 4 days a week and speech therapy twice a week so it was just too much car time to try and potty train then. We started on a Friday b/c I like to start on weekends so that Justin is home to help out with the others so that I can focus all my time on Brayden. The very first day he was pretty scared. He wouldn't really use it, but like Kaitlyn was able to hold it pretty long. But unlike Kaitlyn he would start crying when it just came out by accident when he wasn't ready. He would sit on the potty for long periods of time and just do nothing. By Sunday he still wasn't really doing too well. He had quite a few accidents and would sometimes start peeing in the potty but just never finish. By Monday or Tuesday he was doing pretty good with his peeing. He rarely had any accidents with pee after the weekend. Maybe one or two. But by Thursday he STILL hadn't pooped! Our friend Ashley had sent us a book about potty training from a lady who professionally potty trained kids and she stated that the longer they wait, the worse it will be and you need to try and get them to go. So Justin stopped at Wal-mart and bought an infant enema. Luckily we never had to use it. It only too the threat of having to give him "bum medicine" and he said "I go poo poo." and went right in to the potty and pooped! Ever since then it has been pretty good. he realized that he feels better after he poops and we are able to go out to stores, etc. Yay Brayden!
