Potty Training Tips Needed
Little ones almost 19 months and it is time to start considering potty training (sigh !).
My intention was to wait until they are a bit older, so they understand the concept of using the potty a bit more and then hopefully potty training would be a shorter process but DD has over the past couple of weeks signed to me "nr2" when she has soiled her nappy and "change nappy" on several ocassions so I think she may be ready ...
The truth is, I have no idea how to start. Do I just leave a potty around for her to use at will ? Or do I put her in her potty in regular interval and just hope that one day she will actually do it in there, instead of in her nappy ? When do I stop her from wearing nappies ? So many questions ....
There are, I am sure, plenty of books out there about this subject but I never had to use any books to teach me how to look after my children but maybe this time, I really should get one ?
For once, since the little ones were born, I feel completely lost as to what to do and how to do.
So, if you have any advice/tricks at all, please do not hesitate to leave a comment for me. I would love to find out how you did it !!!
