We started a few months ago, and I was going to do the hardcore 3 day method. That didn't work because a day and a half in DS got a stomach bug and was throwing up for two days. I sort of just put it on the back burner and left it alone.
Then about 2 weeks ago he started asking to use the potty. He's been going every day now as soon as he wakes up, and then several times through the day. I don't think he has had a single wet diaper today. We use a potty seat on the toilet, and my mom and MIL have bought ones for their houses too (they babysit him once or twice a week). He is doing great. Even pooping.
A couple of questions though:
1) We started off giving him a piece of candy when he went on the potty (he gets one mike&ike, nothing huge) but now as soon as he starts to pee he says "CANDY!" How long do we let that go on?
2) What do we do when we are out and about and they don't have potty seats? He is so little I don't know if he can do a regular toilet yet...
3) He still sleeps in his crib, and I assume it will be a bit before he starts going on his own at night, right? I'm in no hurry to ditch the crib since he doesn't try to climb out at all and he is a really good sleeper (12+ hours at night and a 2.5 hour afternoon nap)
4) When do we get brave enough to wear underwear out of the house?
