Dog crate with potty area


Dog crate with potty area

My son has a potty area and a crate for him to sleep in that has a shelf in it for the food and water and toys. He sleeps in the crate all the time except for nap time. When he has his nap he always falls asleep on the floor in the potty area or on the bed. I have used the kennel/crate like thingies that you can purchase that are used for traveling dogs. In the past I have read that you could be giving your child potty trning by letting them sleep in the crate because they are learning to use the crate and he may want to sleep in the crate. The problem with that is that he sleeps in the crate and he is comfortable in the crate which teaches him that he should sleep in the crate not the potty area. I have tried to work around this but the crate is so big that I am not sure what is going to work best with my two little ones. Do you have any suggestions?

Do you have any suggestions on the above mentioned? I am hoping that it is something I can just add in to our dly routine, as long as it isn’t too inconvenient. We do get a lot of colds in the house that we really can’t seem to control. The second daughter does wake up once in the night coughing and we have taken steps to stop that, as well as stop using the baby monitor when the baby is sleeping because they are both sleeping so much!

My daughter seems to be pretty easy in the potty trning department. I did the following to get her to go (with the help of my mom). I bought a potty chr, some underwear, pajamas, and lots and lots of stickers. I set her up on the potty chr and made her put her underwear on. I didn’t want to be seen using the potty so I gave her all of the stickers, a little note and a few dollar bills. I told her that she could give me the dollar bills as she was good and she would get the potty to herself in one week if she finished all of her stickers. Every night she would go to bed with me and in the morning we would start over. I gave her the potty chr to take with her to bed every night. She got all of her stickers, her underwear and cash by the third week. She is a very independent little girl and I was impressed with how quickly she could do this on her own. She is still potty trning because she is two and a half. I would say that this is our number one potty trning issue because it is so easy for us to not notice when she gets into her diaper. We make sure to be ready for her to pee in the morning because the bathroom is too small for us to close the door and wt for her to finish. She is still working on her pull ups and we are hoping that this will be a quick transition.

Our favorite things about being parents are the things that we are most aware of, the sleep deprivation, the fact that she is too short, the fact that she keeps a box of tissues with her at all times, the messes, the not-really-sleeping, the waking-up at 3 am for the pee but getting up agn at 7 am to be with her sister, the never-ending diaper changes, the food issues and the messes that I still need to clean up after her.

We are learning to enjoy the little things. We are learning to be present and we are learning to really see her because she is our world and she is teaching us every day what it means to be a parent.
