I waited untill Rachel started showing signs of wanting to go potty(following me in bathroom telling me she peed, hiding to go in diaper) We started at about 20 months with her but I think the pullups have slowed her down(and the fear of getting her potty dirty). We try to put her in regular underwear through the day and use pull ups for car rides and bedtime. I take Rachel potty every 45 minuites and she tries to go. It don't always happen but when she does go I give her a treat(applesauce or cookie, her favorite foods). It is hard at first but if he is showing signs go for it.
I have been told that 17 months is to young to start training, at what age did you start training?
We took the diaper of Luka when he was 16 1/2 months old....he seemed interested in the potty at that point and we thought we should use the "window"! He was fully potty trained (day) a couple of months later and another couple of months later - after two weeks with dry diapers - we took it off at night!
At what point do I buy pull ups?
NEVER!! If you want my personal opinion...might as well keep the diapers then...because he'll still know that it's "ok" to go and he'll not feel that it's not comfortable!
Any potty training tips would be great!
Consistency! And againg in my opinion the diaper is either on or off...no in betweens!!
