So for the past few months, it's been pretty clear that Baby Girl is ready for potty training. It's me who's been the slacker here. I should have had a training toilet already, but I just kept putting it off. Well, no more! It's time. For the past couple of weeks, I've been taking off her diaper now and then and trying to teach her to run (yes, run) into the bathroom when she thinks she has to go. She's super scared of the toilet! She'll run to the bathroom, but when she gets there, she stops dead center and won't move. I thought this little training seat below would help (sorry for the poor picture quality).
No, it didn't help at all. She's still scared of sitting on that big toilet! We're going to have to get her one of those little toilets. I was trying to stay away from that, thinking that it would be easier for her to just start using the real toilet with the help of the seat (not to mention - way easier to clean). But she won't even get near it (dang it! I thought the princess stuff on the soft, puffy seat would help). She's afraid she'll fall in!
But YAY for training pants! She likes wearing them, so there IS hope!
We'll be getting a small toilet for her soon in hopes that it will help the potty training. And for Christmas she's getting a set of Princess big girl panties. =0) A good thing about potty training girls...We can put her in lots of cute little dresses during this time! LOL Wish me luck, everyone!
