we have lazily begun potty-training. i say lazily because when we are at home with no where to go, i'll put on his underwear, his "fruities" that he loves so much. but those days are rare that we can just stay at home all day. so when we're on the go, i've decided to potty train the easy peasy way: with his normal pull ups. basically, still taking him to the potty on a regular basis and reminding him to keep his pull-up dry, but if he has an accident, no big deal. Easy peasy.
we were just traveling for two weeks and i wasn't about to deal with accidents on the plane or long hours on the road. So, on go the pull ups. Especially since my little guy does ok on peeing in the potty, not so much on the "poop." :)
Now that we're back home, I'm excited to get him back in his "Fruities" underpants. He loves them so much, and is so proud, that he works even harder to keep them dry.
Moms, the beauty of this potty training thing is there is no right way. forget about the experts. trust your gut and do what works for you and your fam!
My style is gentle and easy. (I seem to have gotten uber-lax about all things potty training with #3) :)
But what I do know for sure is that a cute pair of underwear sure does help! Have them go shopping with you to select their very first pair of big boy/big girl underwear and make it super special.
What about you? What works for you and your littles to get them to go?
