Hi all! My name is Tina and my DS is 25 months old. I'm excited to see this board!
I have a question about PT...
DS has been showing signs of readiness for a couple months, but is very much attached to his diapers. He has been in control of his bowels for some time... usually goes at the same time each day unless we are out running errands. Then he waits until the minute we get home.
After much prep talking about big boy underwear, practicing sitting on the potty, etc... we have started PT today. We are giving him plenty of fluids and set a timer to off every 15/20 minutes and having him sit on the potty. He did a great job right away having a BM and we rewarded him. Going pee has been another story. He is literally holding his urine in until he gets OFF the potty and then goes immediately in his underwear. He seems very aware of this. It took a lot of coaching to get him to release his urine on the potty earlier today. This was after he clearly had pee while sitting on the potty and just would not let it go.
Does anyone have any experience with this? He clearly has the muscle control to hold his urine until he is comfortable, but how to I get him comfortable to go on the potty? The fact that he will have a BM on the potty but won't pee is making me crazy!
