Scotty arrived YESTERDAY afternoon – talk about fast!!! Scott’s great – the detail of his anatomy is amazing – my hubby and I got a good chuckle from it last night.
I tried him out last night and am getting the hang of how to use him. Great idea on how to get him to pee by squeezing his leg! I am getting a bit of leakage before I intend him to pee, but I’m sure it’s because I’m not well practiced yet. His right leg is a bit stiff (hard to get it to bend to have him sit down), but it’s probably just because he’s new. I’ll keep moving it – hopefully it’ll loosen up more before this weekend. You included 2 bottles – is the smaller bottle intended for me to use to covertly wet Scotty’s pants?
Read your training guide – VERY well written & like you said, so much more succinct than the book. I’m going to try the lukewarm water approach for the first pee – great suggestion. I remember it taking forever for our daughter to pee the first time on the potty – I resorted to making up a song (complete with Mommy singing the majority of the song, marching around the room and our daughter responding with the last word) to relax her/occupy her while we waited. I plan to use it again with our son – he’s heard it a few times & thinks its funny because our daughter still wants to sing it occasionally. ("When we have to pee-pee, we go to the potty, because we like dry pants and wet pants are icky" – The poo-poo verse says messy pants are icky).
Anyway, I’m in prep mode today – the plan is to start tomorrow. Will contact you if I have any further questions.
