Jennifer mentioned in a comment that she told her son Kyle that he was not going to wear pullups at night anymore and he responded by staying dry after that. I tried a bit of this last weekend with Monkey. I put boxers on him and told him he needed to tell us if he needed to go p**p and he could either go on the potty or go in a diaper. He chose a diaper. I was pleasently surprised and hoping it would continue.
Color me gobsmacked because it *has*. Duhdee has not been putting boxers on Monkey, he’s still wearing diapers during the day, but he is consistently telling us when he needs a new diaper. Two nights ago he went p**p in the diaper and as soon as he was done he went to the toilet, took off the diaper and I helped him flush the contents. This is HUGE people! Maybe we can get this kid PT’d afterall!
I know Monkey understands way more of what we say than he can communicate, I’m not sure why it takes me by surprise every time he demonstrates it though.
