Reply To: Potty Training


We just started training yesterday but we told him the day before and he was unsettled the night before.

We are following the Gentle Potty training book, which is a follow on from Gentle parenting. It’s tough as it doesn’t advocate rewards or praise for going on the potty but teaches them to go on the potty because they want to not for reward or praise.

It’s really hard not to offer praise when he’s just been on potty, instead we’ve got to comment on the wee and ask him if he is proud etc.

My wife’s also been talking about how wee and poo are created and has downloaded this app called poo land which I think is helping him.

As I saw we are on day 2 and we are at about 50/50 for getting to the potty
