We've been potty training our 3 year old on and off for about 6 months now. Part of the reason why it's taken so long is because I've been procrastinating. I don't want to deal with accidents and I also dread having to take him to the bathroom when we are out. But now that we have a newborn, I'm pretty tired of having to change his diapers.
Last Saturday, we tried to put him in underwear and within 2 hours, he wet/dirtied 4 underwears. We didn't even get any pee/poo in the potty. I was absolutely disgusted with having to clean him up after the poo accident. Today, I decided to try again with Pretzel snacks (to make him thirsty and to act as a treat), apple cider (to quench his thirst, to fill his bladder, and to act as a treat), and the iTouch (to keep him entertained on the potty). It worked! He peed and pood in the potty while playing on the iTouch. After he went, he got a pretzel and apple cider treat. In the same way, he proceeded to pee in the potty after lunch, after his nap, and after dinner. Yay!
