Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro!
He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.


I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.


I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.


We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up.
He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 


The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants.
I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.


The sticker chart was a great help with getting him to go to the toilet, as he knew if he did his business in the toilet he would be rewarded with a sticker or two but if he did it in his pants, he would get no sticker.

He cottoned on to that very quickly and his chart filled up instantly!
We still aren't there 100% with number twos...he'd much rather do them on the floor or in his pants, so I'm thinking the special reward box will help with that.
