He knows he shouldn't do it; he'll soak the coach and then point at it "bad bad bad." That's great you know you aren't supposed to do it, but how about not doing it then? I know you are thinking" why don't you just stick a diaper on the kid and call it a day?" Ahh if it were only so easy.
Blondie Boy has eczema and right now it's taken up residency on his ass. It's pretty horrible so we try to let him run around commando as much as possible to keep it from being ever redder and angrier. It also allows us to put some hydrocortisone on it as needed as you can't put that on and then cover it up.
I understand he's little and his attention span and multitasking skills aren't going to be highly developed at 20 months, that's okay. My plan today was to take him to the toilet every 30 minutes and have him sit. Before I hit the thirty minute mark I'd already taken him three times; each of those times he'd started pissing on something first: first some sprinkles on the floor, next he climbs up on the couch and I feel something warm on my leg and thirdly he climbs up on his plastic chair to begin a monster pee which puddles and pours off the chair from both sides in a urine waterfall.
I'd say I gave up, but it was his bedtime so he got creamed up and a diaper on for bed but in reality I don't know how much longer I could have kept it up if it wasn't. Does anyone have any stellar tips they can share? He is more than happy to sit on a toilet or potty and pee in both. He knows Mom and Dad go on the toilet and told me that Daisy Duck uses the toilet (good for her). I know getting them to sit/use the toilet is often a big problem so I guess maybe we are half way there, but how do I stop him from peeing everywhere? Or am I doomed to a future of damp couch cushions and wet marks on the floor where I'm just happy he drinks so much water it doesn't stain?
