Potty Training Updates...

~ Posted on Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 9:58 AM ~

I blogged about starting Ben back on his potty training in February after months of delaying it (Alyson came along in September and I had to pause Ben's potty training since then) and even listed down some short, medium and long terms goals that I looked forward to accomplishing with Ben.

Then I also blogged about the precious sight I get to see - Ben finally pooping in his potty! (instead of diapers which he always insisted on)

And then I revisited those goals I set in February against the progress in early May this year and checking off the ones we achieved so far (progress in about 3 weeks):

18th May 2012-Ben standing on a small stool to pee into the toilet seat.
Sigh... I need to change the toilet seat cover as the hinge is broken and can't be put up!

Goals Set in Feb, Previous and Current Updates:

Goals Set in Feb 2012 Updates in 2nd May 2012 Updates in 24th May 2012
Short Term: To move on to peeing into the toilet seat


 I managed to get Ben to pee into the toilet seat numerous times! Yay!


Ben is able to pee into the toilet seat nowadays!

Short Term: To continue training him to poop in the potty until he feels safe to sit on the toilet seat Continuing this task...


Ben is able to poo into his potty nowadays without needing me to be around!

Short Term: To train him to poop in the potty by himself without me sitting behind & cuddling him for assurance


Ben nowadays will get hold of his potty and proceeded to sit on it and does his business while I carry on with my daily tasks. Yay!

Medium Term: To train him to hold his pee for a longer period


Ben is able to hold his pee until he gets to a potty or toilet seat. Yay!

Medium Term: To go diaper-free during his afternoon naptime after the above goal is met To try this task soon...


Ben rarely takes his afternoon naps nowadays but there are few times he naps (during our recent trip) without diaper on.

Long Term: To poop in the toilet seat To do this once he is used to being around the toilet seat.

Achievable! To continue this...

I do however need to sit on the toilet seat with him as the children toilet seat cover I bought him last year does not fit well on our toilet seat. Plus it gives him assurance mummy's around. He has yet to poop into the toilet seat though...

Long Term: To go out in public without diaper and potty Achieved! Out in public for 3 times without diapers! And I don't have to lug a potty along! Yay! Completed!
Long Term: To go diaper-free during his bedtime To do this once he is diaper-free during nap time. To try this task soon...

So there you go, looks like we are getting almost all of the goals soon!

Thank God for this and for my dear boy to be so good in following through his potty training!

We are all so proud of you, Benjamin!

Hey Sumijelly!
Anak I malam still pakai diapers but most of the time, bangun pagi I check it's kering one, kalau time basah is because before he sleeps, I give him drink water and my breastmilk hahahah.. Hopefully dia boleh go diaperless waktu tidur malam la Smile

Eh your Zulfadhli how old? If he can tell you dia nk buang air besar atau kecil, then bila keluar xyah pakai la... cuma time tension is bila keluar kena survey survey toilet kat mana so can cepat2 pergi bila dia cakap nak gi toilet Tong

Wow, he's doing well! I just wish my son who is getting close to 3 would toilet train.
