We have been allowing them to spend as much time with 'big girl/boy' pants or no pants at all as much as possible. I had been putting nappies on them to sleep. It soon became apparent that Imogen was holding on for as long as possible to do a wee in the nappy. I then started to put her to bed with no nappy whatsoever. I was very surprised that she was waking up dry from her daytime nap! In the evening if she hadn't been to the toilet I also put her down without a nappy, which did mean wet sheets on one night. The second night she fell asleep without wetting the bed and I put a nappy on her after she was asleep. Most of the time she pretty well refuses to wear pants. It is getting colder, so I'm hoping she'll start wearing them soon!
The boys are showing some interest, more enthusiasm from Imogen, but it hasn't entirely clicked in either of their heads yet. Toby seems to have more awareness though then last week when he virtually had none!
All of them have done number 1's in the potty, but have not done this with any regularity. They quite liked sitting on the potty together at times. Miss Stacey has been doing a great job with helping them on their journey to pants!
I'm still not certain that we will continue or give it another shot when the weather warms up. We've had some successes, but there is still a lot of resistance coming from them. If it gets too much, I will try again when they are going to be a bit more enthusiastic. At least when the weather is warmer it's easier to run around naked!
But without further ado, I'll show you some pictures of the potty training triplets journey for Wordless Wednesday. Which is kind of Words are Less, rather then no words type of Wordless for me!
|With so many little individuals fascinated about toilets right now, why wouldn't you spot this as you walk past a hallway?|
|And then disappearing around the corner.|
|Miss Stacey patiently encouraging patient sitting.|
|They had a pleasant communal evening potty session.|
|This time a tandem potty sesh.|
|They both needed to go at the same time. I turned around to pick something up and before I knew it the toilet paper was being loaded into the loo.|
|I might have stopped it from happening the first time, but later in the day I went into the toilet to find the roll had been 'used'. (And of course the empty roll was still on the hanger. We'll get to that lesson later…|
