didn't work for us. After 3 days the twins made a LOT of progress, but they definitely aren't potty trained. As long as I continue to give them extra fluids, there are still a few accidents a day. But Charlie has told us that he needs to go a couple times, and has done so successfully. Basically, at this point, I have to keep a really close eye on them to see the signs that they need to go. Then I tell them to run to the potty and try. They'll usually be successful if I catch them. But in reality, I can't live life like that. Watching them every second. I have to make meals, clean, do laundry...blog. :) So I continued with the method for one extra day.
Today I have stopped giving them extra fluids, but I am continuing to remind them to tell me when they need to go (though not nearly as frequently.) Liv has a ton of extra pants, so she's wearing pants today. Charlie would be too, but he doesn't have many to spare. So far, no accidents, but they also haven't gone on the potty. I really believe that it will all click soon, so we aren't going back to diapers. We're in this to win this. And I've been very impressed with Liv and Charlie. They are doing great.
Now. Having said all of that. I would be giving a slightly rose-colored version of how the last 4 days have been. I knew going into this, that the 3 day method was going to be intensive. Let's just say this. If I ever find myself in solitary confinement, I will end up in a mental hospital. For 4 days all I did was watch my kids like a hawk and say, "Tell me when you need to go potty!" or, "Do you have dry underwear?" over, and over, and over, and over, and over...and over, and over, and over again. Eli and I followed them around the house, never letting them leave our sight. We did not shower regularly. We did not leave the house. We ran back and forth to the bathroom, cleaned up accidents galore, and generally lost our minds. Real life took a vacation for a while, and it was rough emotionally and physically. Thankfully, the kids thought it was totally cool to have their parents around non-stop, and the potty thing was pretty fun too. (With the exception of day 2, when both Eli and Charlie were sick.)
But it was worth it. Even if the process wasn't complete in 3 days. We're getting there. And wow. My kids are big. :)
