My daughter is 22 months old and I am 8 months pregnant. I have literally about 30 days between now and the time the next baby arrives, and people keep asking me why I haven't potty-trained my toddler yet. To me, 30 days does not feel like adequate time and I hardly want to deal with a partially-trained toddler and a newborn at the same time. I am willing to deal with two kids in diapers for a few months until things with the new baby settle down. To me, it feels like a more sensible decision to wait until DD is used to her new sister. I'm concerned she will lose her progress with the trauma of a new baby arriving!
Does my decision make sense, or am I really crazy for waiting? I'm tired of having to explain why she isn't potty trained yet.
