We got a potty when Lydia was 6 months because we were doing part time EC (didn't end up working for our lifestyle) and she was into stuff so it was the only way I could go to the bathroom was to put her on the potty. She was crawling.



She sat on it whenever we did until 13 months. Then we moved and she began disliking it again. I didn't want to encourage the fear, so at 16 months we started giving her stickers for sitting on the toilet.



At 18 months she started showing all the readiness signs. She would take her diaper off before she peed on the floor. :roll: and other things. She got a rash and was having naked time and peed on the floor. I told her "don't pee on the floor! do it on the potty!!" so she stopped and went to the potty. for two weeks she would use the potty ONLY if she was naked. Otherwise she peed in her diaper/panties.



At 19 months she was fully potty trained.



She is now 22 months and having some regression due to a scary incident. We're just trying to encourage her to get back on the potty and giving stickers and praise. I don't want to encourage the fear by putting her back in diapers.

Ellie is 16 months old.. She shows no signs of being ready other then she loves the bathroom, but mainly the bath tub... For about 1 1/2 months now we put her on the potty to poop. She doesnt tell us she needs to go. She's usually always a little constipated so when she starts grunting and gets that "look" we take her to the bathroom and sit her on the toilet. Then tell her good job, good girl, etc when shes done.. I bought her a potty chair a couple of weeks ago and she not to into it.. I sit her on it when I go to the bathroom and tell her "peepee"

We arnt like trying real hard yet to potty train her.. Just taking it a little day by day..
