We’re not done with potty training and we have a long way to go but we have made a huge break through. My daughter just announced the other day that she was going to go potty. I was so proud because she did it herself. All by herself. She just needed help pulling her pants back up and i think it’s just because Pull Ups are snug.
So today I decided to be brave and I told her we’re taking off the Pull Ups and she has to go pee pee in the potty. Yes we had an accident on the floor, which isn’t a big deal to me because I know that’s huge motivation for her. She hates messes. I just need to learn how to catch her in the poop phase before we have a really big mess.
I have heard so much advice on potty training and waiting has been the best thing for us. She just tells me when she needs to go and is starting to use it on her own more often. I just have to make sure she’s dressed, and washes her hands.
Other mother’s around me suggested that if I ask her every hour to go potty that will help and to stay home for 3 days straight to keep from having accidents in the car seat. Hmm, my kids drink a lot of water so I’m really nervous about all this but since I know she’s ready here we go. Now, bigger than potty training, how do I deal with her not needing me?
Wish us luck!
Of course, some of you already have and thanks for that!
