Toddler Tuesday: Potty Training

Our latest task with B has been potty training. We started doing this last September using this diaper free method. Remember, at this point B had just turned 2. The diaper free method worked really well until it started getting cold and I went back to school. Now that baby D is here I knew I had to make the plunge however so off we went. Last week on our shopping trips I let B pick out some "panties" of his very own. He picked out Thomas and off we went to start training. It has gone so smoothly, I have been amazed. We started doing the diaper free method but B was so excited about his new undies it didn't last long. Thankfully, he has done very well. We remind him every couple hours that he needs to go sit on the potty so his trains stay clean and he doesn't make them sad, and he goes in and sits on the potty for a bit. It is so nice to not have to worry about changing his diapers anymore as the only time he is using one is overnight.
Our next task is to get C potty trained. I fear this will be a much more difficut task as C is much more independent and stubborn. Oh ya, and he doesn't/can't talk (we're still not sure if it's because he refuses or because he can't at this point but that's another story). If you have any great tips for potty training kids we could try with C let us know.

Have a great day!
