When your child resists pottying before leaving the house

When your child resists pottying before leaving the house

What do you do when your child holds their pee even though you know they need to go? This can be frustrating when you have a small window for a pottytunity, such as when traveling or out and about or need to get out the door quickly. Today i’ll talk through some tips. For more on potty resistance, check out my mini-course:

Original Question:

“Hey Andrea, I need help with my 25 month old who has been almost fully potty trained for 5 months. He will hold his pee for 3-5 hours. When I need to go somewhere, I’ll ask him to pee and then I’m met with strong resistance. I know he needs to go! If I’m in a hurry, I’ll put a diaper on him and, of course, he just goes in the diaper. I want to ditch diapers completely but I feel like there is no other option when I NEED to be somewhere and he’s just not peeing before we leave the house.”
