OT: Potty Training while BF??

We had some real problems with potty training our eldest, BJ. He has recently become (mostly) potty trained (@4 years, 8 months). He weaned at 3 years, 11 months, and I just hope history won't repeat itself on this (potty training). I know it can't just be because he was nursing (that long- as other people would say).

Has anyone had any success with potty training while BF? I would like to encourage Gregory when he is somewhere between 18 months & 2 years. I hope he will naturally start showing an interest when he is old enough. He is just a Little Baby Guy of just over 8,5 months old.

 I was still typing and might have posted it before I was finished typing it. Gregory was very fussy & pulling my hair. :|

Ah, I gotcha. Happens to me too :)

My first was bf until 3 yrs, 5 months, PT at 2 yrs, 3 months.
My second is bf now at 24.5 months and PT at 18 months.

I don't think there is any correlation between bf and pt. They are two completely different ball games.

My second potty trained while nursing. BF was not a factor.

My LO potty trained at a little younger than 2.5 years (our family best record. My others were over 3ys) and she's almost 3 now and still nursing. So my others weaned earlier and pt'd later. No connection. Btw the avg pt age for boys in 3ys 3months; 3 yrs for girls.

I don't think the two are related.

I nursed my daughter for three years and 3 months.

She was out of diapers at 22 months.

My dd is bf and has been potty trained since about 19 months. My son was nursed until almost 4 and was potty trained at 25 months.


Quoting LKRA:
