Potty training was hands down one of the hardest things I’ve gone through with Grayson so far. Even through those first few months of having him as a newborn, this certainly tops it all. I lost my temper more than once, I got frustrated, I yelled and there were times when I just had to walk away and give myself a second to regain a sense of calmness. There was so much stubbornness between the two of us, so many “no’s”, so many “all done’s” (when he didn’t even do anything), so much repetitiveness, so many accidents, so much laundry. However, after two weeks of hard work and concentration, our 2 and a half year old is officially potty trained! I can say that even though we still use pull-ups for naps (he wakes up dry most the the time from naps) and night time, right? I hope so, because I call wearing regular underwear all day long with no accidents, a HUGE accomplishment and I’ve never been so proud of such a little human being in my whole life.
I posted on my Instagram a few times about potty training and I got so much positive advice and encouragement that I wanted to write this post to share what worked and didn’t work for us. I hope when another mom is frantically googling “how the heck do I potty train my toddler”, they can reference this post and maybe one or two of the things I write down, work for them too.READ MORE
