My Duke is 18 months now. He’s very smart, but very stubborn. This boy does not do ANYTHING until he is GOOD AND READY.
I am partly to blame for his stubbornness, but he gets it honest on both ends. When I say my son borderlines concern with reaching milestones….it’s an understatement. He didn’t crawl until he was 9 months, walk until he was 17 months, and he still refuses to talk and eat table food. Again, he’s 18 MONTHS! All he wants is his ba-ba (boob), and a snack.
With the exception of my oldest son, my other children were potty trained by 18 months. NO pull-ups or pampers whatsoever. My oldest was almost there until a winter stay with his father’s family set him back.
So naturally, I figured baby number 4 must follow suit…..NOT!!!!!!
Knowing he was a little….patient with milestones, I cut him some slack and gave him a few extra months to get started. My first problem was finding underpants to fit him. My child is a runt! He is so small, he’s not even on the growth chart for his age.
Despite this, I still brought a potty, and the smallest undies and rubber pants I could find.
Guess what he did with the potty….
