I ain't going to lie. Potty training is the biggest part of my childs life that I wish I could avoid. But if I did, then she'll be wearing diapers all her life. Every child NEEDS to be potty trained and sadly I waited too long. I use to joke around with my sister in law about training her son really early. She trained him at 7-8 mos and hello little boy is still wearing diapers and they're almost 4. My daughter & nephew is just months apart. But, I hate it (!) potty training. I'm trying everything and this is a journey I dislike the most.
I've used the binky on my children, I've taken away her bottle when she was a year old, and her binky when she was 9 months old. Cold turkey. But potty training is just something that takes even MORE patience than I thought.
I swear sometimes it's just so frustrating. I want her to go in public and tell me she has to use the toilet. So, yesterday (day4) she has this tendency to hang out in her grandma's room which is right next to ours and she'll just play and play and play and play and do #2 in her panties. Like, c'mon child.
Yesterday, I put her favorite tinkerbell stool in the front of the "big potty" so that she could have an easier time using it without my help climbing on. Well, she decides that she wants to "play", so I thought and it seemed, because she'd go on literally every 10 minutes. So, i'm get upset and I ask her what she's doing and she said "using toilet, mommy, make shishi" okay so I'm letting her go until the 7 or 8th time she's doing this... Then, after all that time hours later she poops in her panties. Like, OMG are you frickin kidding me.
The other day, she successfully POOPED in the potty. She's also got "morning" pee time down. But, other than that. #2 just takes time, REMIND YOU!!!
Okay, now we're on Day 5. We'll see how this day plays out.
