Potty Training!

Posted by on Jul. 25, 2013 at 9:10 PM

My DD is almost 15 months old. Yesterday she unsnapped her outfit twice and both times her diaper was wet. Today, she started pulling at the tab on her diaper, and she was wet again.

Is this a good indication that she is ready to begin potty training? Any tips or advice? Thanks in advance!

 IMO it is a sign she doesn't like a wet diaper, not a sign she is ready to potty train.

This. My son is 15 months and tries to undo his diaper all the time when wet. I think disliking the wet diaper is a good start but they new to be way more ready.
Readiness signs are
-interest in the potty
-can tell you they need to go or tell you when they are going
- can sleep long periods of time without going pee.

Do you take her to the bathroom? Being able to go potty involves being able to control the muscles down there. A lot of kids aren't able to do that until at least 2.

That's what confused me was that all the kids I know are older. No, I don't take her to the bathroom with me, it is hardly big enough for one person :/

And I don't normally let her get that far away from me. My house is pretty cluttered at the moment. Ah, the joys of moving!

I would suggest attempting to bring her with the potty with you. She will never have interest if she never seen anyone use it.

Its just indicates she does like her pamper being wet. But I dont see why you cant start now trying to teacher to potty train.

no - all it says is the little urchin has discovered that a wet diaper is not pleasant.

do NOT rush her into potty training.  

if you never, ever, ever potty train her - EVER - do you know what happens?  hint:  there's a reason they just don't make "diaper cut" prom dresses.
