Potty training question!!

My dd is 21 months and I'm thinking of potty training her. I just got her sister, who will be 3 at the end of next month, a couple months ago and now she wants to potty train too! She will poop and pee on the potty perfectly fine, but she more or less likes to play on it. She will say she has to go every minute, just to go get on the potty!! Should I wait a little while until she learns not to play or just keep up with her?

  • Just keep up with her and let her enjoy it. What a blessing that she is interested this young. Hang in there Mom.

  • I would just let her go. If she is ready to poop and pee I'd go for it. The potty is like anything. While she thinks it's fun today the novelty will soon wear off.

  • No keep up with her that is sooo great that she is that interested. It definitely can't hurt to keep trying. GL
