I think I'm going to buy the diva a potty this weekend...she's been showing so many signs of possibly wanting to start the process of potty training. My mom has one of those toliet lids that you just slap on the actual toliet and she loves sitting on it.

So, I think I will buy one of those, but also a potty of her own.

Does anyone have a recommendation? I hear some of them make music and talk to you.

Also, how many pottys do you have in your house (esp. if you have mult. floors)? Do you think I need to buy a potty for upstairs and downstairs? Because I read in a book that to familiarize them with the potty, that when they wake up in the morning, you put them on the potty (even if they don't go)--just so they know that's what big people do when you wake up from sleeping...the same for before naps/after naps, and meal time.

we heard not to get the "fun" potties because kids will see it as a toy more than an actual potty.

Good luck potty training. I have no desire to even attempt that yet!

The little seats that fit on the big potty worked better for Lily than a potty chair. She hated sitting on her little potty

I had heard the same as Beth regarding the "fun" potties. We just have a Safety 1st plain boring one. Kaija liked it well enough and used it quite a bit. We had that downstairs where we spent most of our time hanging out and upstairs we had the seat that fits on the toilet for her to use.

Just as a point of reference, Kaija showed lots of signs of readiness at this same age (peeing and pooping on the potty when lead) so I started working with her a little bit and she JUST in the past 2 weeks is finally pooping in the potty regularly, it's been 2 years. I don't want to be discouraging I just don't want you to be upset if she doesn't "get it" right away. Because I'll tell you, there have been LOTS of tears from me and lots of venty rants in Kaija's PR about potty training

We use two basic potties and keep one upstairs in the master bath and one downstairs. We also have a potty ring, but don't use that. Lily uses the regular potty and Vi uses the potty chairs.

I'm all for potty training early. Lily was fully potty trained at 17.5 months and Vi is that age now and fully day trained. She's still wetting every now and then at night though. I lead her at first (put her on first thing in the morning, after naps, etc), but now she just goes and hits the potty when she needs to go. She needs help getting her clothes off and stuff still as well, but that's fine with me.

Lily took a weekend to fully train and Vi took about a week to get to the point where she'd initiate going on the potty all the time.

Thanks girls!

I have a feeling that the diva will be using diapers until she's about 4, LOL...I can't seem to think she'll give them up when "sissy" still has them on..I'm sure she won't want to use the toliet until I start to potty train Natalie--which will put her around 3.5 years old...but I don't care..no harm in sticking her on the toliet..if she thinks it's fun...then cool..it could be her throne..heck, grown men think of their bathrooms as their palace...so why can't a 1 1/2 year old think the same

On Racheal Ray a little girl liked putting her toys in her potty..LOL!..love it.

If it really does take that long... maybe it would be easier to train them at the same time ? Maybe Aly will make it into a competition Kate Gosselin says that her kids PT-ed fast bec/ they wanted to be like eachother
