So, I’ve decided that since M is (almost) 20 months old and really pushing the big 2, it’s time to really start introducing him to the potty. He’s had some experience with a little potty that I bought for him when he was just 13 months old, he’s even peed in it a handful of times and has actually asked to use it with at least 2 times where he did then pee in the potty. It’s been a long while since that’s happened though. He’s sat on the potty several times, both the training potty and the big potty. I chose this
specific potty because the top comes off and fits onto a regular toilet. In the past month or so I took the top off and started randomly sitting M on the big potty to get him used to what that would be like. He has not peed on the big potty yet, but we’ll get there.
Here’s the plan:
1. Sit M on the potty every hour.
2. Give him books/toys to entertain himself for approximately 15 minutes.
3. After approximately 15 minutes, verbally praise and make a big deal about how he sat on the potty.
4. If he actually uses the potty, he will get a small piece of chocolate. Chocolate is something that is highly desirable but that he never gets.
