- She shows a big interest in the potty when I use it. (She even happily yells, “Pa!”, which means potty.)
- Occasionally, she wakes up from her evening naps with a dry diaper.
- Somewhere down the grapevine, I’ve heard that girls learn to potty train sooner than boys. (Myth or not, it’s a reason to try!)
- I don’t like changing diapers, duh!
So we bought her a really simple but cute lime green potty that converts from a little potty to a trainer seat and stepping stool. It was only $9.99 at Walmart! Not too shabby and she likes it. If this whole potty training phase extends for quite awhile, I might upgrade to a princess potty or a singing one but for now this one will do. I had her sit on it twice so far; once after a dry diaper-nap and today just for fun. She didn’t go potty but I’m a patient person… (well, for this potty training phase at least!!)
Take a look-see at all the fun she was having…
Please wish us luck on this new adventure! And just know, I don’t expect her to learn to be completely potty trained at twelve months old. I know that is truly a matter of when she wants to learn, I just like to be on top of the game. 😉
