Hi all: my name is Yetty. I am mom to Lolu who turned 18 months on May 2nd. Wanted to come around and say hi and thanks. I used a lot of info from this forum when I started potty training my daughter. A poll on this board on when people started pottying training actually helped convince my hubby that it was possible early. So, thanks ladies; you are a great resource

We didn't decide to start early but situations encouraged us to. She was having high fever at about 16 months and they wanted some pee and blood to run test on. Well, they were going to put a catheter on her and I said please let's try the potty (I had catherter when I had C/S and hated the experience). It took a lot of time, turning the faucet on, trying again before we got the most precious golden liquid which meant she didn't have to have the catheter (Yippee). So, I thought since she did once we should probably go with it. She has been doing great. Does both number one and two in potty. Goes and sits on potty by herself at home (often means she sits fully clothed and pee comes through her panties and pant ) but we are still working on daycare folks because they are not taking her as often and she won't tell them (or maybe they don't understand even if she does tell them). Folks at church nursery, though, are wonderful. I told them to take her once this past Sunday and they said she let them know when she wanted to go. The past two Sunday she's stayed dry through church service since they work with her on it (I didn't tell them before because I thought they might see it as an extra hassle; turned out they didn't). We traveled from San Diego to the east coast 2 weekends ago and she made it home with dry pull ups; we just took a toddler toilet seat around with us and pottied on the plane's and airport's toilet seats. She loves her cotton panties and it has really been a great experience for us. Just wanted to brag on my baby and say that it is possible to do this early (18 months).

Sisters, friends forever

Congrats! Glad you were able to avoid her getting a cathetor (ack!) and that she is doing so great! The idea of my kid having to get a cathetor makes me squeemish, so I am glad my youngest can pee on cue for the most part. That was actually one of the reasons elimination communication appealed to me... I really think when they are younger they are much less resistant and it is more of something you just do as opposed to a huge ordeal when they are trying to do things their own way and become their own little person. This way the foundation is set so they can become more independent in their toileting during that time instead of having this whole new concept thrust on them, and having their parents hovering over them to get them to even just try a toilet (which they may be afraid of by that time or have issues in general going outside of the diaper they have become so accustomed to over the years)

Does your child seem interested in the potty chair or toilet, or in wearing underwear?
