I have just been reading about this and I am so interested in doing it! I was planning on starting in our summer (Nov-Dec) From what I read most babies wee just after they wake up so the idea is to sit them on the potty after every nap. You are suspose to get in tune with your LO once you start but we will see I am still not 100% in tune with her feeding routine!
As for your question. I dont really have an experienced answer but I doubt it will hurt her by you doing it at home and maybe you can convince her minder to get on board once she gets use to your LO. I would give it a go. Good Luck!!!
I was fully out of nappies by the time I was 2. But my brother was still in them at 6!!! (at night) def think it depends on the babe, apparently I would take my nappy off as soon as it was wet. My LO would quite happily sit in his own poop for ages...
If she's ready then go for it! If she doesn't like being wet/dirty then she must be ready!!
We'd like to start with Reg early as we have another LO on the way.
There wasn once a lady on here that potty trained from newborn. I can't remember what it's called though?
I'm just thinking about starting after a little suggestion from my mum. Its good to know people have had success as I am still trying to decide if I am or not, but I think I am going to start with my little girl.
I was fully potty trained by the time i was 1. I'm definitely going to my mum for advice!! i plan on starting when poppy is crawling! i dont see anything wrong with training early! like you say... lets not give our opinions on 3 year olds in nappies...
OOh I'm also interested! I doubt anyone will say anything negative in this thread hun
I was planning to start as soon as Ethan was crawling and understood more, so won't be too long. About 10 months maybe. I want him to be able to understand the whole 'well done woooo wow' crazyness that happens after he's pooped on the potty!!! I can def. tell when he's trying to fill his nappy and he doesn't like being dirty either. I'd have to get my mom on board though as she's having him 3x a week once I return to teaching part time, so I'd maybe try at home first then ask her to have a go. It's difficult asking ppl to do things that they think are not yet appropriate (i.e. I think my mom would say it's too early, the same as your daycare provider).
What did she say when you asked her about it? Of course, a lot of it will rely on her being in tune with your LO and she won't be will she? It's a tricky one. I guess if you do it a lot at home then he will learn anyway (can't remember if you said you were working pt or ft).
Does she not have any children on the potty? If it's a daycare centre then surely there will be some but I guess then it's a question of - all the potty things are in the toddler room and your LO will be in the baby room? Maybe there are rules that insist that the babies can't go in the toddler room? Sit down and ask her again maybe, once you've continued to do it at home for a while longer. |It is very time consuming so I guess if she's being honest and saying she can't or isn't willing to fully support it then that's better than her saying yes and not really doing it.
I never would have tried that early with my son I think I used to think he would NEVER understand so when I started to potty train him just before he turned 2 I had a real nightmare on my hands, it took months & months to get him to use it, even getting him to sit on at first was a struggle! Now I'm thinking maybe the earlier you start the easier as they are less aware & I could distract easily with a toy or book? Plus they can't run away lol When I first read your daughter is 7 months I was shocked but if she can go on the potty then thats excellent, I think I will definately start potty training early with my daughter this time and see how it goes, I bet she will take to the potty better then my son did!
Funny you should mention this. I noticed Alice getting very interested in the toilet and people using it (!) recently. I've also found tht she wees as soon as I take her nappy off and likes to look at it, so I've tried her on the toilet and she has done a wee every time. I've looked into elimination communication, but it seems that the window of opportunity is from newborn-6 months. After that, they are too used to using a nappy. Despite that, I think it's good to get them used to using toilets or potties. I had no experience other than my experimenting, but I've been making a psst noise when she wees (even on the floor!) and tell her she's done a wee. I've not managed to catch a poo yet! Whether she'll be potty trained sooner, I don't know, but it's no bother and she's enjoying it, so we might as well!
As you can tell, I've no advice on how consistent you need to be, but I'd have thought anything you do at home is a bonus.
