HELLO, I SEE ALOT OF YOU LADIES HAVE ASKED FOR SOME POTTY TRAINING ASSISTANCE...MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN FULLY POTTY TRAINED & WEARING PANTIES FOR A LITTLE OVER A YR NOW...



I'M SURE YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW I DID THIS RGT???

--WELL...EXACTLY ONE WK AFTER HER 1ST B-DAY...I BEGAN PULL-UPS & PUTTING HER ON THE POT...JUST TO GIVE HER THE FEEL OF IT...I WOULD TAKE HER TO THE RESTROOM EVERYTIME I WOULD GO



---I DID THIS FOR LIKE A MONTH STR8....THEN I STARTED TAKING HER TO THE RESTROOM EVERY 2HRS...@ THIS AGE...KIDS DO NOT KNOW WHEN THEY HAVE THE SENSE OR URGE TO GO SO IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE THEM SO THEY WILL LEARN....

---QUICKLY I LEARNED THAT SHE WAS USING THE RESTROOM MORE THAN EVERY 2HRS....(SO PAY ATTN TO HOW OFTEN YOUR CHILD GOES)...SO I BEGAN TAKING HER EVERY 1 TO AN HR & ½ (EVEN OVERNIGHT BUT MAYBE ONLY TWICE).....THIS WORKED!!!! SHE WAS RARELY WETTING HER PULL UP B/C I WAS TAKING HER SOONER...





---I ALLOWED HER TO TRAIN IN PULL-UPS FOR ABOUT 3-4MOS...THEN I PURCHASED SOME CHARACTER PANTIES (SHE LOVED THEM B/C THE WERE DORA & SPONGEBOB, ETC) & BEGAN TO LET HER WEAR THOSE @ HME....I NOTICED THAT PULL-UPS ARE SIMILAR TO PAMPERS & ABSORB THEIR URINE...SO SOMETIMES THEY WILL STILL GO IN THEM B/C OF THIS...WITH PANTIES WHEN OR IF THEY MAKE A MISTAKE...THEY WILL BECOME LESS FREQUENT BECAUSE THEY DO NOT ABSORB & THEY WIL NOT LIKE THE FEELING OF BEING WET…



----SO AROUND FEB-MARCH OF 2008…I ALLOWED HER TO WEAR HER CHARACTER PANTIES @ HOME…BUT I STILL PUT HER ON PULL-UPS IN THE CAR & WHILE WE WERE OUT & ABOUT…B/C THIS WAS STILL NEW TO HER AND I DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE TO TAKE A LOT OF EXTRA CLOTHES….



---SHE BEGAN TO NOTICE WHAT IT FELT LIKE TO HAVE THE URGE TO GO & WOULD TELL ME..SO THIS IS HELPFUL & WHEN THEY GET TO THIS POINT YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE THEM AS MUCH…..ANOTHER WAY IS WHEN YOU SEE YOUR CHILD HOLDING THEIR CROUCH…OR BOUNCING/DANCING LIKE THEY ARE TRYING TO HOLD IT IN.

---BY THIS TIME LAST YR….MY BABY WAS FULLY POTTY TRAINED….PANTIES 24/7….



*******TIPS----BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE HSE…ALWAYS TAKE THEM TO THE RESTROOM RGT B4 (& I DO MEAN RGT B4) YOU WALK OUT THE DOOR…..TRY NOT TO GIVE THEM LIQUIDS 2-3HRS B4 BEDTIME B/C THIS WILL PREVENT BED WETTING….TRY PULL-UPS…ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO TRAIN IN PAMPERS…& WHEN YOU MOVE ALONG TO PANTIES…TRY TO USE BOTH UNTIL THEY ARE COMFY ENOUGH TO JUST USE ONE….& WHEN YOU DO USE PANTIES…TRY TO BUY THEIR FAV CHARACTER….THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE MORE PARTICIPATIVE …



****ANY OTHER QUESTIONS….FEEL FREE TO ASK..HOPE I HAVE BEEN OF SOME ASST….
