My son will turn three next week. We were going to start the Oh Crap! Potty training today. (http://www.jamieglowacki.com/) It begins with the child spending a few days naked and whenever they start to pee or poo putting them on the potty.
Well, we have already failed. It is not even 8am and my son is screaming and crying that he wants pants. I had a feeling about this. He doesn't want to be nekkie, or even pantsless.
We are going on a big trip in four weeks and I'd love for him to be potty trained by then. We have been talking it up. It wouldn't be too good to then not do it after all we've said about it.
You can pay for access to a forum on the Oh Crap! site, but it is full now and they're not accepting new registrations (not to mention we can't really afford it right now, it's not cheap).
Does anyone have any advice? I was so excited to find a potty training method that didn't use rewards, but we have reached our first major stumbling block just minutes in.
If I put pants on him he's just gonna pee and poo in them. Plus with pants on, by the time you notice they're peeing it's too late.
Please help! Thanks
ETA: I just dug out his old leg warmers (which he never wanted to wear as a baby) and he has them on now. That has helped. Whew! Still....I am taking other suggestions as he will most likely at some point want to put on real pants in the next few days. Thanks again!
