We attempted to potty train Aidric a looong time ago, but without success on the "pooping" part. He has always been more than eager to pee on the potty, but seemed afraid of anything more. I read a blog post somewhere about a week ago that talked about the idea of "poop presents". Basically, a basket of small (cheap) wrapped presents in the bathroom to incite interest and motivation. I decided we'd try this next....maybe in a few weeks or even after we'd moved into our new house.
Aidric woke up from his nap on Sunday with a dry diaper though, so I asked if he wanted to wear underwear. And from there, he has ONLY wanted to wear underwear. I ran out during nap time Monday to get some "poop presents" all ready for him. (He'd had an accident that morning).
I am soooo proud of him right now!! Since Sunday, he has had 3 accidents TOTAL! I know we're not in the clear yet, but he's doing great!! So far, he's opened the "bouncy bouncy ball" and a John Deere tractor that is not pictured b/c it's actually a leftover Christmas present we never gave him. If I had known it would take just a basket of dollar store goodies, we would have done this a long time ago!
