But to be fair, my baby is doing fairly well. Or, he was.
Recently, he lost all interest in using the bathroom. He would go through 2-3 pull-ups an hour until finally, I just put him in a diaper. If He would fight and cry if I even suggested going to the bathroom. Usually, if I put him in a diaper and tell him he can't wear a pull-up until he uses the potty he will go ahead and use the potty. But not this time.
He didn't care. He was like, 'Great, a diaper. Now I can pee all I want.'
A friend of mine has a baby 1 day younger than him and she had a similar problem. She told me that she read it was normal for a 2 year-old, once they know how to use the potty, just to not want to anymore. For a few weeks, she reverted totally back to diapers. Now, she punishes her daughter for going in her pants. But I can't really do that.
So I decided to spice up potty-time! I gave the babe a chart with his name at the top and each day of the week. I got some smiley face stickers, Spongebob stickers, and dinosaur stickers (which were just laying around the house) and told him each time he used the potty he got to put a sticker on his chart.
The first day he went 3 times, which is okay, but still not too great. The second day he used the potty 8 times. The third I think was 7, and I think yesterday was somewhere around there. After each time, he excitedly picks out his sticker (or I do it for him if he has something better to do). At the end of the day we count all of his stickers and I tell him what a big boy he is.
We also let him get some new "big-boy underwear." He picked solid colors with a dinosaur on the butt. Now, instead of him taking 5 minutes to pick from the 3 pairs he had, he takes twice as long to pick from the 10 pairs he has. Then, he decides he wants a different color. It's cute.
Yesterday, his dad took him out of the house in his underwear for the first time. They just went to the grocery store, but it was a big step for him. And each time someone comes to the house, he shows them his potty chart :)
I think we're back on track, and probably doing better than ever!
