Big Kid Now

I was supposed to blog about this last week but since our Internet connection is acting up due to the weather condition, I got side tracked and forgot about it. I am proud and happy to share to you the success that we achieved on EJ's potty training. It took him 6 weeks to finally get used to using the bathroom for his business. Now he can go to bed without using pull ups potty training pants anymore. I am so proud of you EJ!

He now tells me when he has to weewee but whenever he is busy playing or watching TV I have to constantly ask him about it so he won't forget. We are still working on the popo part, he is still a little hesitant in using the toilet, I just have to watch for the clue when he has to go. Ever time he is standing in the corner of the house that is the cue that he is trying to push a log.

For that, we are now awarding this official big kid certificate to our young man Eldon Jennings. Thanks to Chris (my SIL) who suggested on using a small stool for EJ to use so he could use the big toilet. He liked it more than the potty one. I still have to go with him though whenever he weewee and hold it down for him so the pee won't go anywhere lol.

With my daughter, I never had any problem with her. I think the early training helped her to learn it at a young age. I started potty trining Rylie when she was 8 months old so when she she turned 2 years old and nine months, she was completely potty trained.

For those Mommy out there who plans to potty train their kids, it really depends on your child's interest or should I say eagerness to learn,. But you can try as early as possible then if they are not ready yet, don't force it. I tried and failed so many times with EJ but when he turned three, we talked and explained to him that he is getting big for diapers. I am glad that he understood us. It would be a big savings too, Imagine 9 bucks for a diaper every week. So we could save almost forty bucks a month for it.

Iba iba talaga ang reaction nang mga bata tungkol sa potty training, lol. Merong advanced katulad ni Rylie at meron naman na matagal matuto. Kailangan lang talaga nang tiyaga at
TLC para hindi maging traumatic sa bata ang forced potty training. Kailangan nating intindihin ang iba ibang reaksyon nang bata tungkol dito. Congratulations for the big kid award for EJ. He deserves it, lol. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Whoohoo! Great job, EJ!

I remember our son when he was learning... if he was about to do his "business", we would find him in some corner or behind something too. haha

It also seemed like it took him longer than either of our girls to be potty-trained!

Blessings & Aloha!

Oh potty training. Finally got my 3 year old trained just before Christmas. I firmly believe that waiting until the child is ready and not forcing it upon them is the way to go. She went from diapers and pull ups to being completely dry at night within a week but it was all on HER terms.

Thanks for finding me, I'm your newest follower :)

Seiko said...

Congrats to your kids Mare!Good thing talaga to get them potty train early...I trained my kids to go to the lavatory every 2 hours even if they don't feel like going to pee 'til they get used to it & in the end they would tell me if they feel like peeing & same pattern i used when we go out.God Bless!

Clarissa said...
