So I think my son may officially be ready to get on the potty! He's 22mo. and has been showing a few signs here and there but his doctor kept saying to still wait and see if things continue to progress. We don't have a potty yet but one night in the bath, Julian grabbed his private area and yelled "Pee! Pee!" so, just to humor him, my bf carried him from the tub to the toilet an within a minute or so, he peed! Plus, he's been saying 'Boo-Boo' and handing me diapers, even though there was nothing there...then 5 or 10 minutes later, he'll need to be changed. I think if there was a little potty here and I was able to make him sit on it when he yells these warnings, I could probably train him pretty quickly but the process is still incredibly intimidating!
I've seen these books and heard stories that claim their child was fully potty trained in under a week and I think that's what scares me..Could my son really have control of both #1 and #2s, during the day and naptime/overnight to get up and go when he needs to?? How long before he's out of diapers and into pull-ups, or no training pants at all? Any tips, tricks or strategies that have worked, please let me know!! Or if you any great books helped too (because there are overwhelming amounts out there LOL) TIA!
