I've been trying to potty train my now almost 3-year-old since right before her 2nd birthday. We made the mistake of moving her to a big girl bed a few months into it to make room for a new baby, and that set her back to square one. So we stopped until after the baby was born. We tried again, and she didn't seem to be getting it, so we stopped and waited another month. Now we're working on hard core training with just underwear--no pull ups, no diapers (except for in bed)--and she still doesn't care that she has pee running down her leg. I'm trying to wait until that magic moment when it just clicks, but in the meantime, I have her grandma (my mom) telling me that so-and-so isn't even two yet and she's potty trained and she heard that if you miss your window, you're just screwed. Since I started this, I've heard nothing but other moms telling me about their miracle children who were potty trained at 18 months, etc. It's getting a little frustrating to hear that when I'm already frustrated with the potty training process. They're starting to make me feel like something is wrong with my kid and I know that's not true. Any advice on telling grandma to butt out?
