In an effort to get my 24 month old potty trained, we stopped using diapers. Now she is holding her pee big time to where she is only peeing two to three times a day. It is a lot of pee, almost filling the little bowl completely. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

Aww mama! Maybe she is having a little anxiety about using the potty. Can she go bottomless any time soon. I might give her a little more fluid so she feels inclined to use the potty while bottomless at home. For a second my son was trying to hold his poo so I gave him a tiny bit of coconut oil while he was bottomless and it worked. Hugs

Do you take your DD to the bathroom regularly to "try" even if she hasn't indicated she needs to go? That might help her remember & get more comfortable, but at the same time don't make a big deal out of it. You could bring her with you when you go and say ok I just went pee now it's your turn!

I think she is too young. Has she indicated that she is ready in any way?

 

We had this issue with our first daughter (holding her pee) while we were PTing and she ended up in the ER with a UTI. She wanted to sit on the potty, but she wasn't connecting that she was supposed to go and was holding it.

Also running water in the sink while she's sitting on the potty can help w/the release.

Thanks for your feedback mamas. Right after I posted this I basically went out and bought her pull ups. I used to be so against the idea of them too! But mama bear intuition told me she needs to feel like she can go whenever. She knows when she's peeing or pooping but is not 100% sold on the idea that it should go in the potty. So we decided to get the pullups and keep the language very positive, that these are training pants, not diapers, for big girls learning how to use the potty. We offer the potty numerous times a day and never push it, and the last few days she has asked to use the potty for a poo successfully. We'll get there one day... smile.gif
