question: when did start all this potty training business? And are you just winging it, or did you get a book on it? I feel like I need to do some serious research before battling this monster
We got Hailey a potty chair just before she was 18 months. I really wanted to potty train her then, but we were moving, so I just introduced her to it, she sat on it occasionally, even peed on it a few times. In October or November I tried, but wasn't prepared, so it just wasn't good. I think Hailey and I are finally ready now. I haven't read any books, just stuff online. I set a timer for 10 or 15 minutes. When that goes off she sits on the potty, then I set a timer for 5 minutes. When that goes off she can get up and we do the cycle again. She has yet to actually tell me she needs to go, but I figure it'll come with practice. At least I hope it does.
