Potty training twin boys hasn’t gone very well. Sleep training went great, all things considered. Bottle feeding schedule was perfect. But potty training has become crappy. In SO many ways.
People told me we would get the hang of it, but they LIED to me! Now we’re only 3, so I think there’s time. But every time another mom spills her joy over the 3-day method, I want to throat punch her. 3-day method was a complete failure here.
Oh Crap Potty method not working either. Speaking of the “Oh Crap” method there’s been SO much poop. Literally.
Training naked backfired. Sweet little boy nailed peeing in the potty when he was naked. He didn’t want to wear anything. Already did #2 business earlier that day so I let him nap naked. Rookie mistake. Put the little potty for him easily accessible and put them down for nap. Babysitter arrives and I leave while they’re napping.
Then the text arrives:
My child attempted to poop on the potty. Missed it. Didn’t know how to wipe his bottom. Scooted like a dog in 3 rows on the carpet. Then went back to sleep. Y’all. It was a DISASTER. We had a house showing an hour later. The babysitter received hazards pay.
One of my children HATES to poop. He will go hide, poop and then hide the diaper. This unfortunate ordeal occurred during quiet time. Tried to hide the diaper in his room. But, he needed help wiping. His caring twin brother wiped his bottom for him. They advanced from the carpet scoot but wiped with his BARE hand. Then proceeded to wipe off his hands on the carpet and the walls. I’d like to say this story gets better, but it gets worse. Real fast.
Hearing odd sounds from their room during quiet time, I start to investigate. If you have a loyal dog, your dog follows you around the house. I open the door and the dog runs in. The dog then rolls in the floor. Smearing the mess on himself and deeper into the carpet. The cleanest boy in the room is the child who actually pooped.
