OT-The EASIEST potty training ever!!!
Okay, my older son, Drake (almost 4), has been potty training on and off for what seems like FOREVER (really about a year and a half)! He just could NOT get the hang of it. He'd do good for a few days and that was it. Well a couple weeks ago, I was telling my sister how frustrated I was that he just could not catch on, when she told me, "You know, I've heard that the best way to potty train is to let them go butt naked for the whole weekend." So, having tried EVERYTHING else, I figured, what-the-hey! So that weekend, DS was butt naked, in all his glory, for 2 days straight. And guess what!!!

My son is POTTY TRAINED!!! He hasn't had even ONE accident!

I've heard that, too. If they're ready, leave'm naked and put aside money to have the carpet cleaned, if necessary!!! Just think of all the money that used to go to diapers. I wonder where it can go now? :thinking:

Way to go, Drake!!

We did the same method for both our boys. They trained during the summer between ages 3-4. Being the summertime, it was easy to just let them go naked- and it worked!!

I was sooo excited! The money factor is awesome too...more yarn :D And I knowing that I won't have to be changing 3 bottoms!!! We'll be working to get Tanner trained in the couple months before the little beignet arrives. We actually tried Tanner at the same time as Drake, but he peed on the carpet 3 times. So we just figured he wasn't ready yet.

Do you think we should try him again and just clean up after him until he gets it, or wait a little while and then try?

This technique is supposed to be used for kids close to three, if I remember correctly. Some pediatrician was touting it on a talk show. I think the child has to have the muscle control and young ones don't, yet.

Oooh, okay. Well then that explains the 3 pee spots

I guess I'll wait a few more months. He'll be 3 in April, so maybe around February or March he might be ready.

Thanks!

Probably at this point you'd be the one getting trained to catch him before he wets. :rofling:

the neked method only worked with my son. i had all mine trained before 2. i was not changing 2 bottoms! i refused to do it. so they had to be trained. but with my son i just watched him run around nakie and when i saw him *rise* i asked him if he had to go potty and took him anyway even if he said no. girls are a whole different story... they were done by 2 but it was a battle til one day they just caught on! take him every 1/2 hour. have a potty close to you if he is hangin out with you!buy him some big boy draws. and put him in pull ups at night.



oh God i have to do this AGIAN!!!!!!
