The general consensus, to my knowledge, seems to be that boys are usually potty trained later but often more easily than girls. Yes? No?
Six of our seven girls have displayed a bit of interest around their second birthday and they have begun training 3 or 4 months later. Six of the seven girls were out of diapers by 2 1/2 with occasional accidents. Six out of seven were dry at night around 3yo. This was not planned or scheduled; it just happened that way.
The Boy is 19 months now, and this morning he did something unprecedented. He announced that he was going potty and trotted into the bathroom. Amused, I told Kaitlyn to “help” him. And he pooped in the potty.
Don’t misunderstand; I don’t expect it to happen again soon. I’m simply astounded that it happened at all. This boy stuff is not at all what I expected.
