How to Potty Train your Toddler in Just 6 Months!

I know, it's ground breaking! I should write a "How to" book.  I bet it would be a best seller!
We started the potty training process in the end of July last year.  
You can read about it {here}. And he did great.  But any time I put a Pull-Up, a diaper, or underwear on him, he would have an accident.  SO we ended up putting on a Pull-Up when we went out of the house, a diaper for bedtime, and he went commando when we were at home. 
And that worked for us for awhile, but I was still changing a lot of diapers and recently he was holding in his #2 until he had a diaper on.
Fast forward to January, and he woke up one Tuesday morning and I realized I had forgotten to put a diaper on him . . . and he was dry.  So I decided to try again.  We were heading to mom2mom, so I packed his bag with lots of extra clothes, and off we went.  He did great in class, but had an accident on the way home {cleaning car seats is NOT my favorite thing to do.  Why do they make them SO VERY difficult to get the covers off?}.  But guess what.  He hasn't had an accident since!  I still put a diaper on him when he sleeps, because I expect that to take awhile.  But even those will be dry sometimes when he wakes up!  I haven't had to change a poopy diaper either, so I'm calling it a success! And it took just 6 months!
Now the next step is to get him to stop going commando and actually wear the cute undies I bought him.

P.S. And in addition to becoming an author, I think I'll try to be a comedian too. =)

  2. (Visiting from Tues Talk) I laughed when I saw your title and thought, "Now *that's* realistic!" My boys both took about 6 months, too. :)
