Potty training freebie up for grabs in this post.
Potty training is a must at two years old….
I am here to tell you it is not…..
I have heard horror stories, really horrible stories of what moms do, to get their babies to potty train from 18months! I felt angered and discussed, I almost fell in that evil trap of getting the diaper off the bum before or on 2years old.
Trust me, when I tell you buying diapers for five more extra months, wouldn’t kill you, you’ve been buying them for 24 months already!
Sorry I know I’m shouting a lot in this post, but ugh, I get so frustrated. Potty training is a milestone on its own, just like walking, talking and back chatting. They realize themselves that it is time to start getting on the potty and walking around with a wet or soiled nappy is no more fun. This mile stone happens around two years and five or seven months. That is why I waited until the end to finally put her directly on the toilet, (had to cause I tossed out the potty, read about that just now) because she understood things way better, it’s amazing how quickly their brains develop in just 5months.
But getting back to me falling for that trap of potty training on two years, like bam, it’s your birthday, take off that nappy.
We had fights, I was walking around with the mop like it was a cane, cause I would watch her with a hawks eye and ask her every 3minuts, do you want to go peepee? and I all I got was a no, but as soon as I turned my back to do something else besides walking after my daughter like a duckling, she would go.. Forcing her to go potty every 5 minutes was horror! she was in tears, I was angry and so frustrated at one point I threw the potty out the door and told her, now she can do her stuff in the bush like a baboon.
I asked for advice on motherhood Facebook pages, every single one of them, and I got the same advice, to time her and to take her to the bathroom every 3minutes, then 5mintues and you get the picture, I’m sure you got the same advice at some point in your life. If it worked for you great stuff, If it didn’t stick around because I’m bringing an E-book out very soon on how I got my daughter to potty train in two days at the age of two years and seven months.
NOW FOR THAT FREEBIE!!
Follow this beautiful short link to my Pinterest board and print it out to use as a weekly calendar for your potty training daughter. I simply just made notes on each block. If she finally asked me to go number 1 or 2, how long after she had something to drink should I ask her to go potty.
