We haven’t gone as far as forcing our son to go naked for an entire weekend in order to get the hang of life without diapers, but we are attempting to nudge a bit more in the direction of a diaper-free lifestyle. I’ve offered him lollipops–the kid could care less. M&M’s…said he didn’t like them. Made him a chart where he can place a super-cool car sticker every time he sits–he wasn’t buying it. So tonight I offered to buy him a Nissan Quest mini-van just like my sister drives–and the kid sat on the toilet for 10 minutes without fussing. Of course, nothing happened. But he did sit.
I think we’re on to something. We’ll push the potty, and our son will push us into buying a new car.
