So it’s been a few months since my last potty training post. Buggy has done super awesome with going pee on the potty and as most kids do, she picked it up right away but we are still having issues with going poo. The kid absolutely refuses to poo in the potty. We’ve done stickers, snacks, the poo happy dance on the few times she has gone but no dice on consistency with going poo in the potty and sometimes there is nothing at all you can use to bribe this kid with-NOTHING!
I know it takes longer to master this part but she is almost 3.5 and I’m just wondering how.much.longer. The poor kid has had issues with her little who-ha being sore because she’s tried to wipe herself, she’s had a UTI and we are now just starting to feel better on that. She’s been wearing her big girl underwear for months and has no problem going poo in them and she will tell me when she does it and we go right to the big potty so I guess that’s a step in the right direction.
I know that it will take time and she will come around when she’s ready but sometimes it does feel like we’ll never get there so I just need to be patient, Hakuna Matata right but not always so easy when you’re washing poop out of underwear quite a few times a day.
How long did it take for your little ones to potty train?
