I think I see a light at the end of the pee pee tunnel!
Today is day 3 in panties for Eden and I think we are making some forward progress! It's a little bit hard for me to get too excited about potty training, since I've been at it for close to 3 years now, but I am definitely thinking this might be it.
On Day 1 she peed 13 times in 7 hours, with only 2 accidents.
On Day 2 she peed 13 times in 8.5 hours, with 4 accidents.
On Day 3 (today) she peed 23 times in 12 hours, with 2 accidents. 91% success!
I have been charting the time and how much she pees, and it seems like she needs to go every half hour. This seems like a lot, but it is a very small amount every time. My feeling is that her bladder is VERY small, she drinks a lot, and she is not used to holding it at all, but rather letting it leak out in small amounts all the time. So, it makes sense for now that she has to go a lot until she learns how to hold it for longer periods.
The bad news is that we are stuck at home for a week or more until we can get the hang of this.
The good news is that I can clearly tell that she can feel the sensation to pee, and she is finally having some success at telling me she has to go and holding it long enough to make it to the potty. The sticker chart has been a helpful motivator as well.
Eden has been pooping on the potty almost 100% of the time for the past couple of months (I honestly can't remember the last time she had a poop accident), and I really feel like we could actually have her completely potty-trained before she starts kindergarten in the fall.
Go Eden!!!! Go Me!!!
And just for the fun of it...Go Holland!!!
