  1. Kim S. Is there a book you read about this? We also cloth diaper and it would be very nice if we could train our little one to use the potty instead of having dirty diapers.

  2. I don’t believe bribery is a good method. To reward a child with something for doing what you ask them, seems to set them up for some hard lessons down the road. IMO
    We praised and cheered and despite being told age 2 “was too young” we successfully daytime trained in 2 weeks, by simply not leaving the house for 1 week, than making short excursions the 2nd week. For accidents my child had to help clean up, could have been getting supplies, spraying the cleaner or even holding the bag for trash.

  3. Naked!! I kept my daughter naked, well she sometimes wore panties but no bottoms when I was home with her. She would feel herself pee and not like it. Skip the pull ups they were a waste, just a ploy for the companies to see diapers longer for each kid. Always stay consistent and make sure if there is another parent or person involved they are doing the same things you are. Lucky me my husband was deployed and that helped a ton! I will add she was fully potty trained at home and not school. Took longer at school…i’m guessing just how they change the kids and didn’t do as much “potty training”. She was completely potty trained before 2 and has less than 5 accidents ever. She is 4 now and going strong. Now I have a 15 month old boy…..wish me luck!

  4. We started putting our little one on the potty at 5 weeks old! Every time we change her diaper she gets put on the potty. She will go “number 1” almost every time and she goes “number 2” in the morning or at night. I can count on one hand how many “number 2” diapers we have had. My question is, why get the child used to going in a diaper and build that habit for the first years of their life then expect them to completely change? Why not introduce the idea early on and make going on the toilet a normal thing? She is now 7 months old and can keep her diaper dry between changes and during naps (1-2 hours, sometimes.. not all the time…) and like I said before, poopy diapers are limited. I should also mention, we use cloth diapers and it make clean-up SO much easier. 🙂
