t’s been almost a month and I am quite glad with Arianna’s progress in potty training (PT). We are down to NIL accidents during the day but still in nappies during naps and night time. It’s really good to see her taking the initiative and going to the toilet on her own. The only time there were any accidents was because she was too engrossed watching tv or having too much fun playing so she didn’t make it in time. So at this point of time, I’m a very happy Mummy! I dare say my extreme method worked. lol
Now we have to work on the nap and night time loo runs but at the moment, I think her body is not yet ready because one of the signs that she is ready for it is having a dry nappy when she wakes up and at the moment, it is normally soaking wet. So the brains isn’t telling the body not to wee. Not sure how long before she is ready but we’re hoping that the brand new sheets that we got her will encourage her.
Another thing that we could do is to decrease her milk intake before bed and get her onto the toilet before she goes to bed. We haven’t tried it out yet, but I hope that it will work out sooner than later.
That said, it is not the same with KR. I thought that it would be a good idea to PT with Arianna so that she could copy her but it’s not working. Poor thing is totally not ready for PT and had a massive freakout yesterday as I let her go without nappies for the day. She was ready and couldn’t deal with the fact that she was ‘wet’. Then I realised that she was holding it in! >.< Poor thing!!! So today, I’ve put her back onto nappies but in the morning she was still quite stressed about it and wasn’t happy about the wet feeling until I told her that she had her nappy on so her pants wont get wet. She is still stressing out each time she wees in her nappies so I really dont know what to make of it.
I’m actually regretting trying to PT her that day. Now I’m not sure how I’m EVER going to get her on the toilet coz she just totally freaks out each time she wees despite having her nappy on!!
