We decided to let ds go totally on his own. He was interested at 2 so I went out and bought the potty seat, and made a big deal. Then nothing. We let it go, I never intended to start this early anyways.
I think my mom might of put a little pressure or something, though I'm usually always around and he's never spent much time alone with her. Suddenly he has a potty aversion. So we let it go again.
Then, he's 3.5 and still in diapers. I offer a choice some days, diapers, pull ups or undies and he says diapers. So, we let it go. Once at the playground, he's with a group of kids.
I overhear them saying, "hey, you stink".
He says, "that's not me, it's the poop in my diaper that stinks"
Other kid "you still wear diapers? How come?"
Ben, "Well, I do right now, I won't always, but I do right now. It's no big deal you know. I'll be right back, my mom will change me and I won't stink anymore".
So basically he didn't care.
Finally, two weeks before his FOURTH birthday, he comes in and says, "Does Luke Skywalker wear diapers? no Pull ups? no Underwear? yes, Then I am through with diapers, I'm moving on now.
And that was it. Very few accidents, mostly me not getting him there quickly enough. Never a nighttime accident the whole time (good thing since we co-sleep)
I think he will wean this way as well. Someday. He's 4.75 and still nursing. So, he takes his time on things. Which is fine with me. They all eventually do it. No one goes to college in diapers. I got some pressure from others, but I knew it was better to just let him do it himself. I didn't potty train him, I had nothing to do with it. He did it totally by himself.
