We've run into a huge snag in our potty training process and both myself plus the daycare teacher are out of ideas on how to get her to do this step. My little girl will run to the bathroom without telling anyone that she's going when she notices she needs to pee or poop. I know we are still working on that part but she's skipped a huge step in the process and it's becoming a problem. The daycare teacher cannot watch her as much as I can when I have her at home so they noticed it more then I did.
When she realizes she needs to pee or poop she will take off running to the bathroom and wait for someone to come in to help her take down her pants/diaper/undies. So by the time someone notices she missing or where she's crying from an accident has already happened. This missed step has pushed back our potty training to step one.....prompting her to go which most of the time she doesn't do anything because she doesn't need to go at that time. So I was wondering.......
Has anyone else had a little one skip a step in potty training? If so how did you teach them to use that step?
right now she's still in her night gown and a pair of undies.....I'm about to switch her to pull ups because we need to go grocery shopping and it's almost lunch/nap time. Sigh....it's been a full month of potty training and no sign of her being trained fully in the future. Yes she's ready to be trained and no I'm not pushing her.....just in case you were thinking that or going to ask that. She's been ready since Novemeber after thanksgiving to be trained but I was putting it off until christmas vacation. The daycare were the ones who offered to help me potty train her because she was showing all the signs and her pull ups are not holding....they are starting to leak now.
