  • you started at 5 months?? wow...never heard of that. well since she's telling you, it means she's interested, so try putting her on the potty every hour. get one of those timers, and every time it goes off, make a big deal that it's "POTTY TIME!" if she goes pee, she gets a prize (like a mini marshmellow.) if she goes poopoo in the potty she can get either 2 mini marshmellows, (or stickers, m&m's, ect. or you can make a potty chart) Gerber also has those panties that have the thick fabric in the middle, so it absorbes more, but doesn't feel like a diaper.
