The 3rd night of potty training was very interesting. I went in about a 1 ½ after Melissa went to sleep and woke up her to go potty. Well she didn’t need to go so I put her back to bed. Around 1:00am she woke up crying and I went in and she had gone pee pee in her bed and also had gone poop. I was shocked, but after I thought about it Melissa usually had at least two poopy diapers a day. Thursday she only had one. I hope she isn’t afraid to poop during the day. So after getting her all cleaned up she went back to bed. Around 4:30am she started crying out again and this time she had caught herself and we made it to the potty just in time. She did have a little accident in the bed, but it wasn’t that bad. I don’t know if she is getting the hang of it or not.
The 4th day of potty training went well. The morning was accident free. As she was eating breakfast Melissa told me “Mommy potty”, so down from the highchair and off to the potty. She went pee pee in the potty with out getting her panties wet. Today was our first day to get out of the apartment and go some place. Melissa and I went to the airport to pick up my mom who is staying with us for a week. I was hoping Melissa would go pee pee before we headed out. I took her to the potty and told her to try and go pee pee and she did. Off to the airport we went. I did put a towel down in her car seat just in case she had an accident. The trip took about an hour total. Melissa did great! We got home and it was time for lunch, since my mom is her I have to make sure she follows our pattern and makes sure Melissa continues the potty training the way I started.
After lunch it was time for her Melissa’s afternoon nap and again she went to the potty before going down for her nap. When she woke up from her nap she said told me “mommy potty”. Are you seeing the pattern here? Melissa is getting it! I’m still giving her the same amount of liquids that we started with on Tuesday. We had company come over this afternoon so that was challenging keeping an eye on her and visit with company, but she didn’t have any accidents while they where here. Melissa did go poop in the potty. After our company left Melissa and my mom headed out to the patio to play. I can hear my mom saying “oh lets hurry”, but it was too late Melissa had gone pee pee. It was a big accident. I think she got so busy playing outside that she just could not hold it. That was her first accident for the day.
I left to run some errands later that afternoon and my mom said she went pee pee twice while I was gone. Then after dinners he had a small accident, but still went pee pee in the potty. Then right before bed she went again. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Let’s see what tonight brings with the nighttime potty training.
