We have official stopped the full blown potty training at our house. We will still attempt to sit on the potty at specific times of the day (when we get up, take a bath, go to bed, etc); however, right now we are going to wait a few weeks/months to do more extensive training.
From here I'm not sure where to go. Should I only use Pull-ups or should we try big boy underwear, at least at home? He is currently in a pull-up, but it's nap time. We went out for a couple hours today (we have been stuck in the house all week, we were loosing our minds!) and I put a pull-up on him then.
And the biggest question could be the result of our lack of progress. Hoss is a big boy, hence the name Hoss. He is too big for a potty chair. He will sit on one; however, it's some careful maneuvering to be sure he hits the potty part if he pees and there's no hope for #2. We have a potty insert for the big potty and he hates this. He won't sit on it and he acts like it hurts him. So, the dilemma begins, should I teach him to pee standing up? And if so, how do I do that? Should I try to encourage him to hold himself up on the big toilet, which he is completely afraid to do and cries when I try to help him with this. Also, I don't think he is capable of holding himself up. He has extremely low tone in his upper body, which is why he receives weekly occupational therapy.
Any suggestions internets?
