I must be crazy!
 
Starting today I am trying to potty train Kiefer. I didn't want to start before McKinley was born and have a whole bunch of setbacks so I decided to wait (plus he honestly wasn't ready). Well now he is more than ready and I'm home all day long with him so we are gonna give it a go. I'm feel crazy for attempting to potty train a 2 year old while caring for a 2 week old by myself but I'm sure it has been done by millions of women before.

Please wish me luck! He has already peed on my leather couch twice!

Good luck! I potty trained our 2 year old a month and half ago. It is so nice having NONE in diapers...although that will be changing soon. One in diapers is better than 2, right? :D I hope he picks it up quickly!

Good luck! DD is officially potty trained and has been for a few months and it was a bit of a struggle but its nice to not have to deal with diapers! My mom keeps saying to expect setbacks once lil man comes but I don't think it will be a problem cause DD still gets a gummy snack for going number two which she loves and she hates being messy lol.

Valerie- is it just me or do you feel like you are changing an 8 year old compared to changing the baby? I feel like Kiefer is HUGE compared to her (he is actually tiny for his age, 5th percentile across the board). I just feel ridiculous changing his diaper all of a sudden.

I agree! Bourne has aged by years in the last week. He is barely in the 5% across the board and he feels gigantic compared to Bodhi!

And Bourne will start potty training next week, but the lady that keeps him during the day will do most of it.

Good luck!

I was spoiled and my daughter practically potty trained herself.

Well yesterday went pretty good. I just let him run around naked all day. We had a couple accidents but he was starting to get the hang of it. However, for some reason, this morning he flipped out and started screaming and crying after he woke and I asked him if he was ready to go on the potty. He completely freaked out and didn't want me to take his diaper or his clothes off. So I guess we will try again tomorrow. I'm not going to push the issue. I know my son all too well...if I push it and he doesn't want to, it will be a disastrous day for all of us.

i give you credit for potty training with a newborn
i tried once with my two year old and it was disastrous
we waited about a month and tried again and he was good to go from there on out
not set backs yet

Good luck!! I hope he gets the hang of it quickly. I PT Lily when Abri was about a month old. Like you, I knew not to push it or else it would backfire.
