After just over a year and half of changing diapers this Mommy cannot wait to start potty training. I'm not quite sure if Brady and Laura are on the same page though. Brady absolutely loves sitting on the toilet with his training seat. Laura, not so much. She'll ask to get on the toilet but once her diaper is off and you try to sit her on it, she freaks.
She has no problem telling me when she's "pooped" regardless of where we are. Just the other day in Wal-Mart, she announced over and over again "Poop, poop" as she pointed to her bum LOL! The real kicker, there was no poop in that diaper. Brady grabs the front of his diaper when he's gone pee but is yet to actually go on the toilet.
I've done a lot of research on potty training and I know every child is different. So what has worked with one child, just may not work with mine. There are several tips and tricks that I have come across and look forward to sharing them with everyone.
Mommy's first task for this potty training mission is to get Laura comfortable with the toilet training seat. I read somewhere that using a stuffed animal or one of her toy babies may help. Placing them on the training seat and explaining to Laura what they are doing will hopefully make her feel more comfortable. I am hoping this will work as I'd like to avoid buying a potty if I can.
