For the past two days, DS (22mo) has been interested in his diapers. He points to the changing table... he alerts me that he needs "something." It's often been that his diaper is full, although not heavy, and when I go to put a new diaper on, he doesn't want it.
But 20 minutes later, he says pee-pee, and points to the table again, and wants me to put a diaper on.
Um, this seems a pretty clear indication that he's becoming aware of his need to pee.
My only confusion is.. he has yet to discover his physical pee-pee. Whether his big belly or what, he's never pulled, found, tugged on, nada, his pee-pee. EVER. So I'm thinking... "pee-pee" means ACTUAL Pee. Not his physical self. He doesn't have any diaper rash or something that would be "owie-pee-pee".
Is this too early for him to be aware of his need to pee?
I want to embrace this! I don't know quite how to. The past two days were weekend with me at home, so I just rolled with it. He was naked a lot and never had an accident on the floor - because he came to me asking. But tomorrow he's back at daycare. I imagine I'll bring it up, but it's not like he'll be doing naked time at daycare.
I would love nothing more than to start bringing out the potty and actually doing something. But I figured he was too young - he's not even 2! So I don't want to jump the gun. Maybe he's just enjoying some naked time, and I'm happy to leave it at that too.
What do you think?
