Lea is practically potty trained. Yay! (I hope I'm not jinxing it by writing this.) I wasn't actually planning on potty training her this early (she's only 23 months old). Our pediatrician said there was no need to worry about it because children eventually potty train themselves. Well, now that I look back, I guess that's what happened. She was the one who initiated it and started showing interest. We just followed her lead!
We are on day 6 or 7 of no diapers. She wears training panties during the day (they are just panties with a little extra padding/fabric in the crotch). For naps, she wears cloth diapers... however, she's usually dry after a nap, so we may just do panties at nap time soon. And, for bed time, she wears regular, disposable diapers. I have NO CLUE how to potty train a child at night time. Her diaper is always soaked in the mornings. She has a habit of drinking water while we read stories, right before bed time, so we'll probably have to break that habit first.
Anyhow. We are so proud of Lea! I can't believe she's potty trained. She still doesn't TELL me when she has to pee, though. I just make sure we go to the potty at least once an hour. I assume she'll catch on and start telling us soon. (For the record, she does tell me when she has to poo... it's usually preceeded with "My tummy hurts." and then a frantic "POTTY! POTTY! follows as she runs to the nearest bathroom.)
More info. than you probably needed about Lea's toilet habits, but that's our life these days! :)
