Potty Training Day 4 & 5

Day 4
Another good day!  I stopped counting after she peed in the potty 7 times and pooped once! ;)

Underwear didn't go so well, however.  We were outside all morning with a potty seat out there.  The 2 times I tried underwear on her, she peed in them.  I thought maybe it was just the fact that we were outside and she was having a lot of fun, however, when she was running around naked she peed in her potty twice!

On a great note, though, I put a pull-up on her when we went hiking in the evening.  We went through the drive through at Culver's to get dinner and Haven said she had to go in the potty.  I ran her inside and she peed in the bathroom there!  (Though while hiking I tried to get her to pee in the grass a few times and she wouldn't and ended up peeing in her pull-up).

Day 5
Took Haven out for several hours today in a pull-up and she left it dry the WHOLE time.  Yay!  I was too scared for underwear, but I will try very soon!  We went to Venily's tumbling class, grocery shopping at Walmart, and the library.  I sat her on the toilet 2 times, but she didn't go (but at least she didn't go in her pull-up either!).

I put her in underwear and plastic covers for nap time.  About 5 minutes after I laid her down, she woke up crying "Pee in big girl underwear!  Pee in big girl underwear!  Big girl underwear all dirty!"  She was very upset about it!  (But the plastic pants worked awesome- not a drop in her bed!  They never seemed to work w/ Venily!)  So I got them off of her and washed her up quick and put new underwear and plastic pants on her again and she woke up dry and peed in the potty right away.

We were outside for Matt's birthday party and she peed in her underwear again (though she left them dry for quite some time).

Then we left the house again for a kids' activity hour in Burlington and I put a pull up on her.  She left it dry the whole time and we played outside again as soon as we got home and she told me when she had to go on the potty and peed and pooped on it and her pull up was still dry.

Sooooo..... potty training at home w/ no underwear is still going amazing.  We are still working on underwear, but pull-ups are going pretty well for out of the house!  Hopefully we make some progress on the underwear!


  1. Where do you buy the plastic pants? I've never seen them anywhere but would love to try them with Mason when the time comes. I don't mind having to change underwear all the time but pee puddles and wet beds are super annoying!

  2. I can't remember where I got them (they used to be Venily's). They look just like diaper covers but they are plastic. I used to have a TON but Venily never really used them so I got rid of a bunch and only saved a couple for Haven!

    Wait, I just found some online!
