Number 1's and Number 2's
"B"ella is potty trained (so we were told) she was doing really well with her Number 1 on the potty and NEVER has an issue with Number 2. My understanding is that the last part of potty training are the child's BM's... typically they continue to have them in their pants until they are fully trained.. and "B"ella only has her Number 2's in the toilet.
But recently she has decided that wetting her pants and sitting in them and then lying about it -- example:"'C'indy peed my paints." (yes the girls say "paints" instead of "pants"). So after 3 changes of underwear this past Saturday.. I have put her back in pullups and placed all of her "big girl undies" in a clear container on the counter in the girls' bathroom. She was told that if she didn't wet herself for 1 week she could have them back (yes, I realize that is an eternity in her world, but she has done it before).
We recently started giving both "C"indy and "B"ella M&M's when "B"ella goes on the potty instead of in her pants. The thought was that "C"indy would encourage her younger sister to go to the potty when she did so she could get the candy.. but that doesn't seem to be helping any.
So, for those of you that have been through the potty training phase.. any HELP/ADVICE would greatly appreciated!!
