  • I've seen it - and if it works for ppl then they're welcome to it - but in reality your not "potty" training your newborn so much as training yourself to know when they usually go and what their 'cues' are...not something I'm ever gonna try! LOL

  • Sounds like more work then its worth.

  • Personally I wouldn't have the patience for it, not to mention all the laundry I'd be doing. I figured that by the time they would actually be able to use the toilet on their own would be around the same time most people potty train anyway so it wouldn't be worth it much to start real early. I don't mind chaning diapers!

  • Yah I thought it was cool for people who could do it...but honestly...especially for a first time mommy...that's the last thing your thinking of.

  • Here here, i agree that its more work than it sounds. I'd say wait to put that into effect until the little one can sit up. I meen I guess its a nice Idea to get them used to the potty.

  • I have a cousin who did it. Sshe doesnt watch for her babies cues, she just tells them when to go. She holds them over the toilet and says "pssss" like a peeing noise lol, and they go! I think it's great and admirable, but It is not for me.
