I'm just starting to think about potty training....even though I probably won't attempt it for some time. But I was wondering what you other moms did. Sitting or standing? Did you buy one of those little toilet seat things to put on the toilet?
I can't pass the buck on my hubby as he works and I stay home. I'll be with my son much more....so....any suggestions?

When I was potty training both my boys I had to work alone since my hubby was deployed. It was a tad awkward. I taught them sitting down, telling them to just "aim towardsthe water" LOL I was able to however, after a few weeks, tell them to just stand up and aim for the water. I used a lot of reward charts and positive reinforcement. It all worked out well, although to this day I still have to tell them to lift the toilet seat to tinkle and put it back down when they are done. Some never grow out of that LOL. Good Luck!
