  • Started at 14 months, but it took 4 months to get it down, she is 18 months and totally day time trained.

  • We bought a potty when she was a year and 1/2. She peed in it once then never wanted to try again. She's now 2 1/2 and has just learned how to completely control her bladder during the day. She just walked up to me one day a couple of weeks ago and said, "Momma, I go poop in the potty!" So I ran her to the potty and she peed! We've been talking to her about how its the cool 'big girl' thing to use the potty for a few months, so I guess she finally decided that it was her time ;-)
