More and more dry at 14.5 months old

We are having fewer and fewer misses around here lately. We still miss all the poop. Don’t ask me how that happens! Well, actually, it happens because Henry sits on the potty for about 2 seconds. And then he’s up. I actually ask him to sit back down and “pee more” to get all the pee out - he doesn’t sit long enough to fully pee!!

I tend to notice changes like this several days after they start, and only kind of in the back of my mind. EC is so casual around here that we think about it rarely, and talk about it even less. It’s only tonight that I realize my husband and I have been saying “he’s been dry all morning” and “he’s been dry all afternoon” to each other lately.

Henry has been refusing to sit on the toilet seat reducer on the toilet for about a month I’d say. At night now I sit on the edge of the tub and point him into the tub to pee. He also only needs to pee 1-2 times at night, compared to almost every time he woke to nurse before. He gets quite upset if I try to take him to the bathroom if he doesn’t need to go!

I keep saying I’m going to try to catch the poops, but I honestly don’t know what else I could be trying. I’m pretty happy with how our journey is progressing even if it’s not what I expected or how I’d have chosen.

All the differences between boys and girls were vague before, but now I’m seeing some trends from reading a lot of others’ experiences and having them mirror mine so closely. Delia (my daughter) used the potties much more often (she still does in fact); Henry prefers the toilet and in-arms positions much more often than he does the potties. His tendency is to NOT sit whereas Delia would sit happily for 10+ minutes.

Something I haven’t experienced myself, but have heard a lot about it boys’ tendency to pee in underwear or close-fitting clothing for a while before they “get it.” Seems like a lot of boys will stay dry and communicate about needing to pee when they’re naked, but as soon as they have underwear or clothes (or trainers or diaper) on, they’ll pee. Henry doesn’t SEEM to do this right now, but I’m mentally prepared for it if it does happen. I know others have had good success with putting their sons in loose fitting shorts with nothing on underneath - going commando if you will - and this gets them clothed enough for leaving the house while maintaining that naked feeling.

Something else I’ve noticed is that Henry has stopped signing. He never signed potty, but he was signing to nurse pretty consistently. Now that he has started to talk a bit, it seems like that’s all he wants to do. The trouble is he doesn’t have words for nurse or potty. If we want to talk about shoes, however, we’re golden. :) I’m looking forward to some vocabulary growth in the next few months to cut down on the grunting and pointing and pushing/pulling we have going on around here.

  1. Wow! Henry got so old, all of a sudden!
    I’ll concur with your findings–both my boys were more reliably dry when nakey. I didn’t realize this was a boy/girl thing. I’ll be so excited if my girl shows a speck more consideration for wet undies than the boys.
