Chris decided last week to potty train himself! This was after he saw Jon and Matthew going....he pushed a stool up to the toilet and went after I had him undressed for tubby. He's completely pee trained *helps since he doesn't like the sensory aspect of wet and we were going through tons of diapers*! I am not pushing the poop part since the other boys were all pee trained before poop trained HOWEVER he refuses to sit at all on the toilet. He keeps saying "fall" when we put him on even with the potty seat and he will not sit on a potty chair. Is this something we will need to wait for? *Again, I am just thrilled that he's going pee on the toilet period! Jon and Matthew weren't able to be trained until this time LAST year when they were 3.5!* And how do we get over the sensory aspect of him feeling like he's going to fall?
Next...Matthew has low muscle tone. Matthew is going a week or so without going poop then having accidents. I've talked about this before. We were told to do Miralax but after talking to a pharmacist, decided to use Pedilax first. DH gave him the entire max dose the first time and it worked TO WELL Now Matthew is afraid to try it again and who can blame him? Is there anything else I can do to help them with this? It was suggested that his accidents could be a direct result of the low muscle tone as well since he's getting so consitipated that it is so few and far between.
