Project 52:23 | celebratory [potty training]

Well…last week I was fighting the potty training & dare I say…this week it is done?! The only credit I can give myself is that (a) I bought her two potties (both the Baby Bjorn potty & the Baby Bjorn Trainer) when she turned one & she has been using them here & there ever since and (b) she certainly could “learn by example” because there is an open door policy around here when it’s just us girls around the house.

Last week she decided it was time. For both of us. She was soaking diapers overnight & I was fighting her unsnapping them all day long. It took just about a day…& she is now eagerly using the potty. & then we celebrate. like CRAZY! One m&m or reeses pieces and lots of squeals & smiles. She is so proud. & mama is happy. & now my fingers are crossed that this lasts!

How? I give her the credit. She was completely self motivated. Logistically–here’s what I did: we went straight to undies. Nothing in between. She wears a fuzzibunz both for naps & to bed at night…but they have been totally dry for days. When out & about I have the little Bjorn potty in the back of my SUV (it stays there & the trainer inserts are in the potties at home) & she goes every hour, or when she requests.

I swear, if we have another baby I am screwed…because this was way too easy. Though…she challenges me in other ways. So maybe this is just my little bit of smooth. ;)

Do you have a “secret” that was your magic for potty training? I know I have learned a TON from wise mommies. I’d love your wisdom too!
