Potty Training!

The time has come to start potty training my grandson. With two more grandchildren ready to start potty training in just a few weeks.  I am hoping the journey will be smooth. My daughter started doing elimination communication with him around his first birthday. It has gone very well and he caught on quickly. He is very interested in the potty and goes every time he sits on one.

I have been reflecting on my potty training experiences with my children. I was blessed with children that were very easy to train. I have to admit I did not have any struggles with this experience. I am not sure why! I just know that some parents have at least one or more problems while potty training.  So now that I am helping my children potty train their children I am not much help when issues arise.

The good news is there is much more help and information out their for all the problems that may arise as we make this journey together.

Any suggestions my readers have on this subject are very welcome.

  4. Both my children were so hard! My son had medical problems and all tho he wanted to use the potty it wasn't always possible. My daughter however she just didn't care for it... I got so fed up I just took her diapers threw them away and said to bad for you! then i brought her to the potty every hour the first day every 2 hours for a couple days then every 3 hours for 3 weeks and it was over... it was easy once I got it going...

    I am having a weekend long give away with over 10 prizes (being posted every couple hours threw out the weekend) Hope you can follow back :)
