Potty Training: Week One

Day 1:
Baby had three accidents. We used a timer set at 20 minutes. The 20 minutes started at every toilet use/accident.
Highlights of Baby screaming "Kaaaaaki" as he pooped his pants. He is not happy to have poop in his underwear or on his legs. Now he's scared to go #2. That will be the next hurdle.
Over the course of this week, we've evolved very nicely to not really using the timer.
Baby showed signs of "potty knowledge" as early as a little over a year. Needless to say, I was not ready to tackle that monster then, and I didn't want to torture Husband. However, a month or two ago, Baby started leaving the room to poop, and tell us when he peed in his diaper. We eased into the potty training thing. Every once in a while, we would put Baby on the toilet before bath time, or in the morning. The day he peed in the toilet (last week), the diaper came off, and it's not coming back (except at night, and long trips out, but then it will be a pull up).
And, by the way, Baby still refuses to use that little potty seat.
