**I stocked up on underwear for my daughter. I am trying to prepare for potty training. We have all the supplies including the pink little potty, Days of the Week panties (how do you resist?), Pull-Ups and flushable wipes. Now if only I had a plan in place about how I am going to tackle this feat. Leave a comment of any suggestions. Maddie is very interested in the potty and says that she is "wet" or "stinky", that is about all that we have worked on.**



  1. You are better off than I am. My son will be 3 in October. We tried potty training a few weeks ago. On day 3 we were both in tears. Needless to say he is not ready for potty training. I figure we will try again in a few weeks.

  2. Hang in there Jennifer...I guess I was lucky, my daughter will be 3 in July and was potty trained at 21 months! Every child is different.


  3. I have twins who are 3 1/2 (both girls). One has been potty trained for about a year, the other just did it this week. I truely believe if you have to really "work" at it then they are not ready. She was dry in the morning and after nap for a few days before we switched to underware. I've also had good luck with just letting them go bottomless. Now that the weather is nicer, that is easier to do. Good luck! It wil happen when she's ready.

  4. Yep, I can vouch for every child is different when it comes to oh, lets see EVERYTHING! :-) My son was completely potty trained at 27 months, my daughter 18 MONTHS (I know - Crazy!) and my last daughter is 27 months and wants NOTHING to do with the potty! :-) I might try and work with her a little in a month or so and see what happens! I agree with the letting them go bottomless - I had good luck with that too! Don't sweat it though . . . that's not fun for anybody!

  5. had my daughter potty trained at 18 months! I worked in daycare for years. the kids who potty trained the fastest were the ones who used cotton training pants- NOT PULL-UPS!! We used daipers at nap and night and she got it pretty quick- she was consistently dry in about 2-3 weeks.
    but, of course my Lucy was rediculously easy with the potty (at least we had that one thing she was easy with!) The only thing I really recommend is skipping the pullups- it's cheaper too!

  6. My sister is going to have a portable potty seat in the car since they are out and about so often couponing and such. I think unless you are going to stay home all day and night with the kid then that is brilliant! Lots of kids arent secure with public potties and who wants their toddler holding onto that dirty seat for dear life? I might have to get a minivan JUST for the portable potty seat when the time comes.

  7. My daughter was potty trained by the time she turned 2 and was more interested in it at this age then my son. He was 3 when he finally started. I only kept her in underwear the entire day, no pull ups or diapers. She had many accidents on the floor (thank god for hardwood)and we went through many pairs of underwear through the day, but she finally realized she didn't like the feeling of wet underwear. Soon she was running to the bathroom everytime she felt the need to go. I also tried this method with my son and he could care less if he was walking around with wet underwear! Good luck to you! I also noticed that my daughter was more into it when I got her character underwear (Dora, Elmo).
