What was worse for you- teething or potty training?

I'd take a teething baby any day over potty training! How about you?

 Teething. Potty training was easy.

Teething. My kids were fairly easy teethers. Potty training is a nightmare. My dd2 has been potty training for a week (our 3rd attempt at this with her) and she is doing amazing this time around! But I'd still take teething.

Neither my biggest battle was tying shoe laces

I would take teething over potty training any day. My daughter was easy to potty train but my son who will be 3 this month absolutley refuses to use the potty. I put underwear on him and put him on the potty and he will not go. But the minute he gets off and starts doing something else he goes. I just dont know what to do, shoe laces was easy with my daughter because she was very curious and wanted to learn.

Teething by far.

Yeah I would rather go through teething again than potty training.  DD will not poop in the potty and its driving me insane!!!!  I'm hoping that since we are about 1 1/2 weeks into wearing big girl panties all the time, except at bed time, that we are in the home stretch.  Especially since I told her I might start throwing them away when she poops in them because it was so gross and I'm tired of cleaning them out.

Neither, they weren't that bad at all.

Teething was really easy for us, potty training makes me want to disappear

I would take 10 teething babies over trying to potty train my youngest...that was the longest & hardest thing I've ever had to deal with (especially since my oldest trained himself for the most part in less than 3 days with only 2-3 accidents).
