DS just turned 2 in May. We've had a potty seat around for awhile, and he was occasionally asking to go potty, but nothing consistent. I had read a couple versions of the 3DPT method and just decided to jump in with him. MIL had taken DD for the day and we had a playdate scheduled for that morning at our house, so I figured it was as good a day as any to start.
Day one he had 3 accidents in the morning, 2 pee and 1 poop. Went to nap in underwear and stayed dry the whole time, peed on the potty right after he got up. Stayed dry all afternoon. Went to Target to get big boy underwear (he had been wearing DDs because I was so unprepared!), peed before we left. Went to bed in underwear (DH and I went back and forth on this, but decided to try underwear and see what happened). Got him up to pee around 1030, didn't pee, but woke up at 450 a bit wet, crying for the potty. Sat him down, he peed, asked for a diaper, and went back to sleep until 7. Had peed in his diaper.
Day 2-- Had plans to see my dad, who was an hour away. Brought the potty seat, stopped halfway at ILs to pick up DD and pee again. Waited until he had gone before going to Dad's. Had one accident at dad's house, but peed on the potty right away once he started and noticed he was going. Dry whole ride home, wearing a diaper. Peed when he got home. Bed in underwear, peed at 130A on potty, woke up at 7 recently wet.
Day 3 (today)-- One accident in the afternoon, partially my fault because I hadn't been paying attention to the time, but otherwise dry all day. He even got out of the bath to pee! Woke himself up to pee around 9.
We're still debating keeping him in underwear or switching back to diapers at night. He's going 4 or 5 hours without peeing so I think we're going to give it a few more nights and decide then. We use Gerber trainers at night and regular underwear during the day.
I can't believe he did so well and it was so easy to PT him. I was definitely expecting to not be ready to PT until close to 3. I post this in a way to show that when kids are ready, it works so well-- so try not to get frustrated if it's not working!
