So my son has done this now SEVERAL times. I know potty training has its ups and downs... but is this normal?
On saturday, my son went all day without having an accident other than pooing in his diaper, but now since he has not went to the bathroom ONCE. I know he knows when he has to go because on saturday it was him telling me and his dad he had to go to the bathroom, and when he is not going on the potty he will tell us if he is wet. I don't know what to do to get this more consistent. The periods in between him going seem like they are forever, he has been doing this since he was about 15 months old and nothing I have done has helped. We switched him to pull ups for a while, then it was just a fight to get him back in diapers because he wouldn't go in the pull ups and just liked taking them off and would throw dry ones away. We tried putting him in regular underwear and he just started crying everytime he had to go to the bathroom but wouldn't go on the potty and ended up just peeing on the floor which my husband and I proceeded to tell him it was ok and asked if he could please tell us next time he had to go.
I don't know what to do anymore... it's driving me NUTS!
