The Start of Potty Training Adventures
Attempts to potty train Little Patch has all been crap, down the drain. Few months ago, Patch and I have bought LP a cute portable potty (because cuteness plays a vital role in squeezing a poop out right?) in hopes to get LP potty trained.
We were hoping that combined with the use of cloth diapers, which isn’t as absorbent (meaning: comfortable in pee) as disposable, LP would start using a toilet, just like the rest of us. We bought an actual potty, and not a mini seat that attaches to an adult toilet because I didn’t want to freak him out as putting a baby on an adult toilet is like pushing a puppy into the mouth of a live volcano.
But Little Patch is one dirty baby. He doesn’t cry when his diaper is soiled. He cries and fights his way out of getting his diaper changed (changing him myself is like a UFC fight). He has absolutely no interest in being potty trained.
After reading some articles on training, I tried to find a consistent time that he normally poops so that we can start putting him on the potty when it’s around pooptime. When he’s in cloth diapers, it’s hard to tell when he pooped or when he’s in disposables, his farts confuses me as poo. And he farts a lot. Which I realized that recently, he’s been tilting to the side, raising one bum cheek up when he releases a fart. Just like Patch.
After a week, my mom and I find that he poops during meal times. So unless we want to start feeding him while he’s on the can, we will have to wait and find a better time to start the training again. It’s a break from hearing my mom go “mmm mmm” to encourage his bowel movement as I dangle his butt over the potty.
I’m really hoping that he’ll be potty trained soon so I can start teaching him calculus by the time he’s one.
