Diaper-free diary

Right after Dillon wean off his pacifier, I have decided to potty train him. Dillon has always been able to tell us when he needs to poo poo so that is not an issue. Our mission now is to train him to pee in his potty during day time, as for night time, we'd still wear him diaper.

Day 1 - Day 3
For a start, my maid would bring him to the potty every one hour, sometimes he would pee in it but sometimes he just refuse. Hence on the first 3 days, he wet about 4 - 5pants a day on average.
Day 4 - Day 5
Dillon became more aware of the mission and he has understand that he needs to tell us when he wants to pee (he will say "shee shee"), but it's just that sometimes when he tells, it's too late and he has pee on his pants already.
Day 6 - Day 7
Over last weekend, it is remarkable that Dillon only wet his pants once, every time he needs to pee he will tell and then will go to take his potty to us.

Well, I guess I can safely say that Dillon has been potty trained and again, I have accomplished another mission. Bravo Dillon and to myself too, hehe :)

I am very glad that Dillon has achieve this before turning 2 next week, and what's my next mission? Maybe is to train him to brush his teeth I guess.

Congrat! Dillon is such a good boy. If you want to avoid 'accident' you may want to try to put him on training pants from Mothercare.A bit pricey though but save you some trouble.

Bravo and good luck with the brush-teeth mission!

I still have to coax my Caitlin everynight into using the toothpaste, even though she's been using the same brand for months, and get her to "SMIIIILE" while I brush for her.

Thanks all, so far these 3-4 days he has been 100% pee in the potty, hope he'll keep this up...*fingers crossed*, but when we are going out we still wear him diaper.

And yes yati, need to have full cooperation from the babysitter or maid then only can train him successfully.
