So my mom has always told me that I was potty trained before a year old and then when my brothers were born (they were preemie twins) a week before I turned one I went back to wanting to only use diapers. I have tried to figure out over and over again how my mom could have possibly potty trained me so early. I just don't see how it happens...My youngest is 9 months old and I could actually see her walking soon (my sis and my boyfriend both walked at 9 months) but I just don't see her using the potty by a year. I'd love to be able to potty train that soon, but I'm not sure if you'd do it the same as with a toddler? I'm not necessarily going to try this as I think every kid is different, but I'm curious if anyone else has tried this early or known of someone who was potty trained this early.
I assume that if I took her to the potty and set her on it a little bit after every meal and as soon as she gets up and right before bed, maybe she'd get it eventually, like the way she figured out crawling to her highchair and making noise tells me she wants food. But even if she got that she could go potty in the potty chair, like crawling over to it, I don't see a child that young caring too much to go use a potty...or at that age do you just always have to take her and sit her on the potty herself? I don't see her sitting still long enough to do the deed and the fact is, she would constantly try to play with her poo and pee as she was going or right after..Maybe if she gets a banana/rice snack (those mum mum things, last awhile and she loves them) each time she'd do it?
Just curious what other people think about this and if anyone has done it or known of someone who has. Thanks.
