At what age did your child really "get" potty training. If you have more than just answer for the first.




Please just answer the poll.
I made a poll to avoid comments. No need to stretch the truth to look like a better Mom than the next :D:D:D

Ugh! IDEK where to start lol. She is so stubborn. She knows where/what the potty is. She loves sitting on it, but won't go. She wakes up dry, I put her on it, she'll sit there and not go. put a diaper back on and goes within minutes. SMH
I know the pooping cues, she stands right in front of me and stares at me, if I put her on her potty she stops going.

I waited until DD1 was three. I felt like at that she age she could understand fully and grasp the concept quickly. She is four and we are still using pull ups at night, but i figure when she is ready to go without them at night she will tell me.

My daughter is 15mo now, so idk how potty training goes for girls. As for my son, he didn't catch on til after he was 3. But, when he caught on, he caught on 100%. He pooped and pee in the toilet from then on. He had no over night accidents and only had 2 accidents ever. I cringe at the thought of potty training my daughter, she's little miss bossy and doesn't like to take direction. So, this should be interesting lol

Thank God! DD1 will be 3 in a couple of weeks and I was worried she'd just never go in the potty, lol! She likes to sometimes and some days she'll just say 'f**k it' and not feel like doing it at all.

DD will be 3 in a month and she is just not having it. So far nothing is really working with her so it's over 3 for us.

We introduced the potty at 9 months or so. She loves it, just won't use it, lol
