Welcome Nicole!

Quoting luvhubandbabys:

Hi everyone! My name is Nicole. I have 2 daughters. ages 2.5 and 16 mos. Working on PTing my oldest, my youngest sits on the potty too sometimes mainly to encourage big sister that it is fun, family time. My 16 mo old peed on the potty once we were so excited..haha. I will work on her once my oldest is trained.

Im trying to do barebottomed method but sometimes I get too frustrated and put a diaper on her. Then it seems like she holds on for the diaper. IDK.. but its a work in progress. Hopefully everyday we will have more time diaper free. Glad to be here I def need the help.

Welcome Jen!

Quoting jenniferlee_12:

 My name is Jen and I have a soon to be 15 month old boy named Evan. I started putting Evan on the potty around 7 months just to get him so he wasn't afraid of it. He went a few times because I think he heard the water running, but since then he hasn't really had any interest (I know he is little still lol). The past few months I have gotten him to sit on it again though so that is a plus.

Welcome Mandy! Good luck!

Quoting Mrs.Andrews:

My name is Mandy. My daughter will be 3 in December and we are having a new baby in September. We have sort of started some potty training off and on but I just don't feel like she is ready yet. Wish us luck!

Hi Everyone! My name is Yesenia I have a 5 year old girl  and two boys one 2.5 yrs and the youngest 9 months old.  I am having trouble potty training our 2 year old.  He is doing great in peeing in the toilet, but when it comes to his bowel movements he is not interested.  I try to make it interesting by ready to him or giving him stickers as rewards but still he kicks and screams.  Any suggestions?

Welcome Yesenia! Poop seems to be the hardest for most! There are some great posts in here with some really good information on things you can try. Here's a few tips: potty where he might hide to poop, have him help clean up accidents, a prize where he can see but not touch it (drool over it) until he puts poop in the potty (then you have a party and give it to him!).

Good luck!

Hi My name is Grace I am married to a very hard working man, that does his best, but to be honest it has been rocky! I am a stay at home Mom to 2 daughters, Skylar will be 4 in Oct. and Keira will be 2 in Sept. and I am due with baby #3 in January.

Keira seemed like she was SOO ready to train, she was sitting on the potty by herself, even went a couple times by herself, but we were in the process of moving so I decided to wait until we had moved, now that I am trying she is fighting it every step of the way!! I really want her fully potty trained before the baby gets here.
