A New Chapter
Among the towels and soap, my bathroom cupboard now houses…
Now that we have a good potty seat (that I won in a giveaway!) we’re starting to think about potty training!
Katie will be 18 months in a week, so she’s still a bit young.
I’m looking for training advice. We’ve already had several successes, (with reward: see above photo,) so I know that she has an idea of what she’s supposed to do and she’s been quite proud of her accomplishments.
But is 18 months a little young? She is excellent at communicating, yet she doesn’t seem to mind too much when her diaper is wet…if I ask her if her diaper is wet, she’ll tell me “no!” just to avoid the diaper changing process.
Much too busy for such things, Mama.
I don’t mind keeping her in diapers for a good while yet. Should I be encouraging occasional attempts, or is it going to complicate things when I want to get her trained “for real?”
Please share your experience and thoughts!
The other issue is…if she isn’t entirely potty-trained before the baby comes, (in about 7 weeks!) do I really want to be in the middle of that process immediately post-partum? Or would it be easier to just change her diapers for a few months along with the Tiny One, and then start in earnest once I’m recovered and life is a little more “normal?”
My new Thirsties Duo wraps just came in the mail and I like them! Must we phase her out of diapers already?
Okay. So I’m weird.
