  • That is only one sign they are getting ready to be worked with, in my opinion. It means they are becoming more aware of when they have to go and it might be a good time to introduce them to the potty if you haven't already....or if already introduced...step it up a bit.

    No matter what, though...don't push. It's always backfired for

  • I was also wondering that because my daughter is 18 mos now and she hides when she poos so I was wondering if I should start also?

  • It's one sign. The more signs your child has, the quicker it will go. Check out the "are you ready" test in the beginning of the book "The No Cry Potty Training Solution".
