It’s Thanksgiving time and The Potty Fairy is thankful for all the parents who have listened to webinars, visited and picked up tips on her blog, or connected thru social media. Our friends in Potty Training is growing all the time. So at this time of year where we reflect on what we are thankful for we are sharing a blog post from one of our moms who are expecting a baby soon, potty training her son and creating a business on Amazon. Please enjoy our guest blogger, Odelia Castillo, who shares her adventure in potty training and her potty chair business.
Adventures of Potty training at its finest!
So I hear it’s harder to potty train boys? You don’t say! Since I have nothing to compare it too as this is my first time ever having to do this, let’s just say I believe it.
Although I’m a bit confused why it would be harder since a boys’ anatomy seems easier to deal with. Any-who, our son Kingston is 2 years and 10 months old and is going to be a big brother any day now. So as you can imagine getting him potty trained is a huge deal in our household right now since NO ONE wants to change two diapers all day, no one!
We started potty training him by just having him sit on a potty before bath every night until we said you’re not going in the tub until you go pee pee! So that is how he started getting familiar with a smaller, floor sitting potty.
Then more recently, we started leaving him at home bottomless. Literally, the minute he got home from school we had to take off his bottoms and get him to roam around the house with his cute little tush out, and it worked!! He feels like there’s nothing there so he runs to the potty as soon as he feels it coming which is great! BUT where do we go from here??? Once we put on his underwear there’s a 50/50 chance he will go in them and on the floor. Then when he goes to school he still wears a diaper and they do take him to the toilet to pee but not poop. We have also used the reward system and got through about 15 hot wheels so far. For every time he poops on the potty he gets one.
So now we are 5 days away from our baby boys due date and our toddler is still back and forth on his potty training progress, man this is taking longer than I thought. But we have to stay consistent that is the key, I guess!
Through my toddler raising and potty training journey, I became a SAHM and I myself created a brand of, yup, you guessed it- Potties! The brand is called “Smarty Potty” (TM pending) and they are awesome colorful BPA free potties for the floor (for beginner and smaller babies) and toilet (for toilet sitting and transitioning or trained kiddos) they are available on Amazon prime now please check the link to see them for yourself! Trust me they help me a lot I’m not just selling them we use them every day in all 3 of our bathrooms!
Thanks for reading and good luck with all potty training parents! We all need a drink, Cheers!
