I know all our Little ones may or maynot be ready yet but I was wondering what you all were doing to help potty train them or get them ready for potty training.
On our end our daycare has started taking her to the potty, having her sit on it until she squirms off, then replaces her pull up. When I asked they told me that they are slowly trying to get it to click that the potty is where a big girl goes to pee or poop without really pushing her to hard in case she's not fully ready.
Thanks to that slow routine my daughter can actually wipe herself and flush the toliet but it just hasn't clicked yet that "Oh this is where I pee or poop instead of my pull up" LOL.
My mom keeps telling me to put her in regular underwear for a week and it will eventually click but I'm not too sure....I've also heard of letting them run around bottomless for a few days. Still deciding what I want to do....today is a total bust as she just wants to play with her new toys santa and family gave her. So we start tomorrow.
