I never thought poop would be so important in my life
This week we moved S-Boogie from regular diapers into pull-ups (aka "panty diapers"). We still aren't to the official potty training point, because she's realized rather quickly that she can still just pee in her pull-up and it's no different from peeing in a diaper. We're planning on doing "potty boot camp" in a few weeks when Master Fob will be home for a while and can help out. It should go a little better for all of us with Daddy here helping. I mainly switched to the pull-ups because she's been asking more often to go potty and they're easier to deal with than regular diapers. I've been trying to remember to ask her to go potty often during the day, but I haven't been very good about reminding her. We are getting in the habit of sitting on the potty before naptime though. On Tuesday she pooped in the potty for the very first time, right before naptime. Yesterday and Wednesday she simply pooped in her pull-up rather than telling me she needed to go. Today the lesson finally sunk in. She declined to go potty before her nap (another reason I like pull-ups right now is that it helps me keep the pressure off and gives her freedom to say no without consequences for a little while longer). However, after hanging out in her room for a while she came out and announced that she needed to go. She sat on the potty for a while with a book and produced a poop! It feels so wonderful to just flush the poop down the drain instead of dealing with the lingering smell in the house and all the wiping involved. The system is working! I know it won't be totally easy, but we seem to be getting off to a nice start on the road to clean dry panties.
