I bought my daughter a potty for her first birthday.

I know she is too young to start potty training, but I want her to be comfortable with it when that time comes. Well, she likes playing with it and keeps putting her toys in it . .. lol. Anyway, this won't be a big deal will it? I sit her on it and she smiles really big! She thinks it's fun! This isnt a bad idea, is it?

  • THat's exactly what I did. around 16 months or so I would put her on it after baths and left i in the bathroom so she could copy me. At 26 months she's now gone 3 days w/o an accident! I had to wait until 2 becuase she had surgery and I knew it would thorugh her off anyway.
