The Potty Training Challenge...Might be long...lol
Ok, so we have been working on DD with potty training, this might be a long post, but am bouncing around some ideas, so no bashing please...suggestions only. Right now DD who is 2 and a half (she'll be 3 in March) still sleeps in the crib. I don't think we're ready to try a big girl bed just yet...am hoping to hold off til DH comes home from Korea. She is finally wanting to sit on the potty...just nothing happens yet, no biggie, we're still practicing! lol But she is stripping down while she's still in the crib and it's a big ole mess...am trying to get her to not strip down to avoid the mess, but I don't want her regressing...make sense? I think she's scared to relax on the potty and pee in it. Idk if I should even buy a potty chair for her at all, since she enjoys sitting on the potty like a big girl and the part I feel bad about is when we're all asleep and she has an accident, I feel bad that I didn't hear her call out...am trying to get her to say "Mommy, I need to go potty!" or something along those lines! lol...i know, I'm rambling here...lol! And I know accidents are a big part of the training process...for those of you who went straight to underwear...what were your routines? Just getting some idea...she loves her pullups at the moment...i don't want to rush, but I'm thinking that if she's stripping because she's had an accident and she doesn't like to be dirty/wet, she might be inclined to wear underwear and pee/poop in a potty? Just some thoughts please on your little ones....Thanks!
