my little one never really had what I would call a potty pause. occasionally he would resist going to the potty, but no extended periods of not wanting to use the potty. He has always worn diapers b/c I was never able to keep up with he frequent peeing, but he has pooped in the potty consistently since 5 months. He has become noticeably more aware in the last few weeks so I've been giving him extended periods of diaper free time. We had a glorious week of him taking himself to the little potty to pee or poop often without us prompting him or even being the room with him. But the next week was the complete opposite. We've had to change at least one, sometimes 2, dirty diapers for the last week or so. So I guess you would call this a potty pause. He is still aware because he will tell us that he pooped in his pants. He has had a lot going on this past month, turning 2, language explosion, starting to sleep in his own bed (5 feet away from our bed) for half the night. I'm guessing all of this has something to do with it.
My question is... do you do anything during the pause? Is this something to work through or does it work itself out in time. Is this considered a regression? I am so ready for him to be totally without diapers. I can't even describe how ready I am.
