what do you do when your toddler (2 years old, 29 months to be exact) hates both diaper changing AND potty training?
sometimes she tells me when she's pooped in her diaper, others she won't. but either way, she starts sobbing when she knows she's about to get changed. she doesn't fight me when i'm changing her, she just hates the idea of having her diaper changed. like something bad is going to happen? i don't understand why. everytime i tell her it's okay and we need to get her bottom clean. when i'm done she's fine.
i tried potty training about 2 months ago, and we had a little bit of success. she had some readiness signs, she mimicked others bathroom habits, told me when she was dirty, and had an interest in using her potty. i took her to the store and let her pick out panties, bought stickers, and stopped using diapers cold turkey. it took a few days but she used it and did great for about a week. then she regressed and it became a fight getting her to go on it. i think it's my husband's fault for getting upset with her when she had accidents. but im holding off because i know if it's a battle, it's not time. i want to try again next month when she's 2 and a half. but if she cries again, and also cries during diaper changes, what gives?

Do you talk to your massage therapist during the massage?
