My daughter is not a "talker" yet.....meaning she is delayed in speech only but grasps the concepts of a daily routine, what is right or wrong, etc. I have tried potty training with her during the summer but we have had to stop due to her frustration levels rising. So I put her underwear away for when she is ready only problem is now she's showing signs of being ready to train again. She's even pulled out all the underwear I've put away and started trying to put it on. When I go to the bathroom myself she follows, sits on her potty, and helps mommy flush the toliet. Her daycare teacher also has noticed signs of readiness and has mentioned that they are willing to help me any way they can in the training process. Right now they have only been taking her to the bathroom to potty before nap and after nap to see if she's at least willing to learn.
When I stopped I thought to myself that we would wait to see what is said about her speech development before continuing because one of our problems was telling mommy she had to go to the potty. Now I'm not sure I should wait because I do not want to loose this spark of interest again.....my sisinlaw waited and now they are having a rough time with my nephew.
Any tips or tricks I can try with her, even the little ones, would greatly be appreciated!
