Hi I started toilet learning with my 2.5 yr old on Wednesday. We have been doing the "naked bottom" technique, where she bare bottomed at home. She can control her bladder b/c she holds it when she doesn't have pants on. She will hold it for 3-4 hours. She did well at home with no pants. I put underwear on her to go out and she was dry all morning (8am-noon).
We came home she tinkled a small amount in the potty. I cheered wiped her pulled her pants up, went to make lunch. No more than 30 seconds later she was behind me saying, "wet pants", her pants were soaked. I hadn't taken them off when she went b/c she had her shoes on and I didn't want to bother taking everything off, I just wanted to get on with making lunch as it was late.
So, this same thing happened the previous day. So she voids a little bit but not the whole bladder. It's like she waiting for diapers to be put on her (she wears them at nap and bed).
Is this a normal step in the process? I don't remember this with my older girls. One of them caught on quickly, the other, well it took a while.
