It’s time to start Potty Training

The time has come to start potty training Luke. I’m not really sure how to go about it, but I’m gonna learn. We already have some potty training equipment that we got a few months back. To this point he’s refused to sit on the thing without a diaper on, so that is obvioiusly cutting down the chances for success drastically.Potty

I don’t really have a plan yet, so I’ll be doing some googling tonight to get some tips. He actually lets us know when he’s pooped his diaper, so I’ve heard that is a sign that he’s ready to start potty training.

I usually take him in there when I drop a deuce, and he sits on his potty with his diaper on. I’ve overdramatized my excitement over making my poopies, to try and convince him that it’s a good thing. But unfortunately he seems quite content to give me props on my poopies, but he doesn’t seem the least bit interested in being like daddy in this respect.

So I need to figure out what is going to motivate him to use this potty.

    yo, yo, yo, unless you have an outhouse and need to let Luke out to get there a couple of times a-day, I’m afriad not… although you COULD have an out house cause it looks here like you live in log-cabinville… for real!!!

    i gotta jump over to your UFO posting now because I am VERY INTERESTED-

    Hey there – saw your comment on nomoregarbage re waste. There’s a good blurb in Wired (maybe 2 months ago? last month?) about which is worse environmentally, using a bunch of water to sanitize diapers or using disposable diapers. Turns out it’s close, not necessarily what you’d think. So don’t feel too bad about disposable diapers – they decompose pretty fast and are more environmentally friendly than a diaper service. Good luck with the potty training. I’ll be checking to see how it goes (gotta learn, hopefully there’s a kid in my future, soon).

    You must remember that boys take much longer than girls to train and that number two’s are very difficult to train.
    You would have more success starting with number one’s (urine) we used a table tennis ball in the pan that he could hit if he directed the spray right, this made it fun & he wanted to do it.
    We also used a reward chart every time he pooped in the potty not his nappy he got a star, 5 stars meant he could choose a toy ( one of those cheap 1.99 things).
    He’s now only wearing a nappy at night, usually dry in the mornings and it only took a couple of months

  4. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed
    to be on the web the simplest thing to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked even as folks consider worries that
    they plainly don’t understand about. You controlled
    to hit the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the entire thing
    with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  5. All I knew about training dogs was what I had learned in Science class about animals being
    made to behave in certain ways through rewards and punishments, so
    I naively (stupidly, actually) assumed that I could get
    Vicky to act in the ways that I had wanted by rewarding her for her good actions and punishing her for her bad ones.
    Older canines have a tendency to be a lot more mature
    and perhaps better companions, the very best good friend that
    a human would need to have. If the space permits, take your dog off the leash and
    play with him.

  6. The point when the tyke is occupied with different exercises or playing, he may not prefer
    to head off to the can. Or collect the tear strips in a jar or pouch for
    a larger prize. Dog is like close friend to us or other pet owners.
