It’s our first TT Tuesday edition of Ask the Moms! I’m so excited about this because I get to share your genius with you. This week’s topic was Potty Training Secrets. I took to the interwebs and asked all my Facebook and Twitter peeps their best training advice.
Let me tell you people there were a lot of naked babies running around these parts over the last few years! Watch the video for some other tips. Then check out a few morsels below and please, leave your own tricks in the comments section for moms who still need to know.
Some great ideas came through you Super Moms! Here are a few:
Nicole said: Just take off the diaper and never look back! If you are brave enough for this, here are some tips that got her through.
- Line the car seat with a trash bag for quick accident clean up
- Tiny toilet in the trunk for emergency on-the-road moments.
Helen says, “consistency with routine and make sure your child is ready, not just you are ready.”
Catherine (You’ll see why you should listen to this woman, please!) “After 7 kids I say just wait ’till they’re ready then stay home in underwear and a top.”
Jessica said: “Pants off three days straight. Done.”
And she was just one of many who sang the praises of no pants. There must be something to that!
I’ll tell you one of mine pooped every day on a potty chair in front of Dora the Explorer in our living room. Disgusting? Perhaps but it beat the alternative which was intestinal damage from severe constipation. Never fear, she wasn’t in our living room for long so there is an argument for do whatever works because it really won’t last forever!
What are your potty training secrets? How about your potty fears?
