The last time I wrote about toilet learning was a while ago.
This process has been very gradual. Bear has inched along at snail's pace. It doesn't feel like we're moving until we look back to where we've come from.
At the moment Bear is able to keep his undies dry except in exceptional circumstances.
He usually needs help getting undies off and on. I think this is more of a confidence issue than a competence issue. There are times when I am not able to help him for some reason and he manages without me. I have not been able to coax him to practice despite my best efforts - I think I need to get better at stalling!
Bear is still usually using a potty but he is starting to choose the toilet with a toddler seat at times.
He will usually cooperate when I ask him to do a wee before getting into the car and he is incredibly reliable when we're out.
This is a summary of Bear's toilet learning milestones to date:
Toilet learning is a complicated process! There are still more milestones yet to be reached:
My name is Vicky I am wife to Ranger and mum to two boys - Bear (2) and Fox (8 months). Somehow I stumbled across Montessori and now my goal is to raise and educate my children with a Montessori philosophy in country NSW Australia.
