So far, she has really enjoyed sitting on the toilet. The real toilet, that is, with a kid-sized seat on top. (I never used a 'potty' with her or the boys. I wanted them to get used to a real toilet since that is what would be available when we were not at home). She likes to hold the handles on the little seat and grab the toilet paper holder. No success yet, but I think the turning point is going to be when I can figure out when she has to go! I try when she first wakes up, before or after nap, and before bedtime.
Maybe I can give her some water and then let her hang out with no diaper on. I have heard about those natural potty-training methods where even infants learn to use a toilet! The key is to get rid of the diaper. I suppose I just have to be prepared for puddles. There's really no rush for me to have her trained. I still enjoy having a baby around. :) It is more for her. She really does not like messy diapers. If I can get her to the point where she could at least do the doo in the toilet, I think she'd be much more comfortable.
There should be some progress in the next two weeks. My goal... she can watch me pour out a doo-doo diaper into the toilet. Yay!
I'd love to hear some of your potty-training stories! What worked for you and what didn't?
