Tales from the Potty: A 1.5 year old boy wants to go
It's been a long time since we've had some good potty talk around here! Lend an ear and your advice to Stef:
I have a 1.5 year old boy that I think has been giving me verbal cues he might be ready to start potty training. Things such as... "poopy mommy" and yet, there is no poop! Is this a sign he recognizes he needs to go? If so, what success have other mom's gotten from videos, books, or ebooks (the infamous 3 day method)? Which ones worked, are any better for boys? I purchased a potty, he sits on it randomly, no production yet. Are stools better for boys? Is it ok to teach them to pee sitting first? I've heard mixed reviews, and my husband doesn't want him peeing sitting down, but understands his lack of balance may render him there initially. I have no day-care crunch timeline, so I'm not very proactive but would hope he's getting there before he's 2 just in case we need to utilize day care. He does watch my husband often, knows that pee comes from his penis, etc. etc. I'm ready for anything, he's been such a breeze so far, and I have great patience and will be consistent with whatever. I've also heard that boys may take longer... Thanks!
