Time to potty train! No, I don’t pressure my kids to use the potty. But when they show interest, I know it’s time. Why belabor this, and spend ridiculous money on diapers when they can easily learn over a long weekend? How do I know it’s time for my 21 month old? Here are the signs….
- First things first, I’m going to start keeping a log of when she goes. I’ll write down each dirty diaper, and the time she went. This will help me know what time of day to put her on the potty.
- Next, I’m going to stock up on the Huggies Slip-On diapers. These will teach her how to pull her pants off and on.
- We also use these Kohler toilet training seats in the girls bathroom and our half-bath. I used the Prince Lion Heart POD little potty for Lila, but Emy is partial to the big girl seat. She wants to be like her sister…which is fine with me.
- And lastly, I need rewards. For Lila I used little plush dolls, she was obsessed with little stuffed animals, Super Why was big at the time. And also Elmo stamps. For Emylia, it’s food. She loves to eat, so I’m thinking little Mickey Mouse fruit snacks or M&M’s. Hey whatever works, do it!
