DS weeing every hour. Help!
4

SpaghettiMeatballs · 23/10/2016 22:00

DS is 2.7 and has been weeing on the potty first thing in the morning for weeks. Tried him in pants today and he did really well with only two wee accidents.

The problem was he did 12 wees in the 12 hours he was awake! Is that normal? He didn't have excessive drinks.

When I trained DD she would go every few hours so even if she had an accident you knew you had a few hours grace after that.

I would just put it down to him not being ready but ten of the twelve wees did go in the potty.

I'm not sure where to go next if he's going to wee that frequently. How will I ever leave the house?!

I should add he didn't go literally every hour. He would go three times in 20 minutes or so and then have an hour or two without needing the toilet.

Totally normal. They go at the first hint at first. Learning to hold is a new skill, one which some need lots of practice with.

The first couple of days of potty training, DS went really frequently because of the novelty of it all. I remember thinking I had 5 minutes grace once, after he'd done 2 wees in 20 minutes, went to make a (much needed) cuppa but of course he weed on the floor whilst I was out of the room... Hmm

Now, he wees about once every 4 hours!!

Stick with it then and he should improve then?

He seems happy enough and was quite upset by the second accident as he obviously felt he was 'getting it' by that point.

He even asked to get out he bath to wee tonight so I think Doje could be right with novelty.

DH says he is like a puppy......!
