hi there! i have a couple of friends that began potty training around 8-9 months and have afully potty trained 11-12 month olds. this is what my mom did with me, but my daycare provider (she starts daycare in sept at 9 months) is not really on board..... my daughter has done a few poops on teh potty and seems unphased by it. she lets me know when she has to poop, and really hates to be dirty. she also wakes up from sleep and naps dry and only poops when she is awake and alert. is it possible to do most of the training at home or does it have to be pretty consistent when she is at day care also? i have not committed to this person, but really like everything else about her and we clicked pretty well.....
please dont use this post as a chance to tell me how wrong you think i am for wanting to potty train early...that is not what i am looking for, and will not give my opinion about 3 year olds in diapers if you dont give me yours lol everyone parents differently, and every child is different.
My friend's son was potty trained at 1 yr 2 mnths. But I have a friend with a 2 yrs old daughter who still wears nappy, & her mom is not in a rush to potty train her. I think it depends on the mom & how she can handle it xx
thanks for the support! i bet if i didnt write my disclaimer a few ppl would have a lot to say to me. as for my daughter, she defiantely lets me know as she starts to grunt and make a face and hold her breath as she 'bears down" lol i know she is getting ready to poop so i say poopoo ? and i take her to the potty. we have had success a few times and we go through the whole thing wehre we flush and say bye bye. i dont know how much she can understand, but i understand her and also, she doenst like to poop if she is sitting in ehr car seat or in a position where she feels pressure against her bum. if she poops in her diaper, often after a nap or in the morning when she wakes up, i will go into her room after hearing her over the monitor and she is in crawling position with her bum up and poops like that. she then looks at me distgusted and wants a change right away.
Well poo is predictable, but what about wee? & while they'r sleeping. I guess I will just give this mission to my mom. She's living with us now, & I guess she's experienced.
hahaha my thoughts exactly! i wish my mom was retired but she has two years left......i was hoping she would be off.
poo is definately where you start and then they sort of get peeing later ..... i have a friend who just went through this process and her 11 month old has been fully trained for a month and cant even walk or talk much yet! i have messaged her and will post her reply on here when i get it
i think they also need to be dry when they wake up in order to really start with pee, they need to be conscious of it, which i have noticed that my LO seems to be now.
