Potty Training Questions...

Gambit is a little over three months old. For those of you with bostons this age, or remember when your bebehs were this age, how frequently would you take them out to potty? He sleeps through the night fine, no problems, and can go 3 -4 hours sometimes when he is asleep, but when he's awake, I try to take him out every hour, hour and a half.

Now, when I'm at work, he is taken care of by my husband's gramma, who says she usually lets him go for 2 or three hours before taking him out to pee, often he is awake for that whole time.

In my experience, in our place, Gambit can't go that long without an accident. Then again, that was a while ago and I've never tried letting him go longer since then.

Tonight we were at gramma's and he played, slept for a bit, woke up, played some more. It was about 2 and a quarter hours, and he seemed fine, then he let go unexpectedly and without warning on the carpet. Only a dribble, my hubby took him outside quickly.

But still. Gramma was shocked, she said he's never done that. But I guess he was really needing to go.

So, timelines for potty? I wonder how long I can push it, because, living in an apartment, taking him out for a quick pee is a ten minute process. lol. Not that I mind, he's a baby and he has a right to pee.

Also, he's been pissing on stuff when I'm not home. On my hubby's winter coat, and on the sheet we use to cover the bird cage at night. I think it's because I'm not home - I'm at my drivers' ed classes on the weekends now, and his routine is screwed up. Because my husband says he definitely pees before he comes in, and then deliberately pisses on stuff not twenty minutes later.

I guess that's just his way of rebelling since his routine is screwed up? Or should I look into something else? He's on pills for a little bit of the sniffles he has... could they be weakening his muscle control?

    I haven't posted in forever... I'm sorry for that. I think I'll be around more often, and I hope all of you will be too. My babies:…

    In case anyone still checks this community, I thought I'd post this. My Lainie died yesterday. She had turned 11 years old not long ago. I took her…
