Of course that ended in constipation and pain for her so she then associated the potty with pain. It took my sister over a year to potty train her for daytime. It turned into screaming matches for them.
lol Exactly what I was kind of thinking by going a bit early...before she realizes she has that option maybe? I do have a stubborn child but I think by showing her early that this is just another way for her to be more independent (Which she prefers more than anything) it will really be helpful for all of us. I do have motivation since 1. I absolutely hate diaper changes 2. SHE absolutely hates diaper changes even more than I do.
