Today is day #2 in panties.
Yesterday was her first day out to the store in panties.
Today would be her first time out for church with her potty, but it's like a million degrees out there and I am NOT going to sit outside for 6 hours...
Here is an over-cap of what we did for Hayven's potty training. She was MUCH different then the twins:
(1) Naked!!!!: Like the twins, she ran around naked and I would try to catch her midstream peeing on the floor and run her to the potty. I would make a big deal about peeing on the floor being "yukkie!! No peeing on the floor Hayven!!! We pee on the potty!" I would also make a big deal when she finished on the potty. Everyone would clap and cheer and she would get candy.
(2) Tip: Don't Freak Them Out!!: So Alex is a bit dramatic sometimes :) I love him! And Hayven had been nervous to poop on the potty so she had been holding it for two days. Finally, it couldn't wait any longer...
She farted and out exploded a turd onto the carpet.
Immediately my husband started freaking out, "Oh! OH! OH! NO! What is that?!? Oh!!"
Hayven started screaming.
I rushed her to the potty to finish.
She saw the poop on the floor and started freaking out like it was alive or something.
Needless to say, this set us back a good week from progressing with her because she was scared to sit on the potty.
**I was a bit distraught with her learning style. The twins simply understood when I told them not to pee on the floor. Hayven needed more. I tried briery, discipline, showing her, putting her on the potty every twenty minutes... but she wasn't seeming to get it. But we KEPT PERSEVERING.
So read this along with my previous posts on potty training and hopefully you can glean some wisdom and encouragement when potty training your baby :) :)
P.S. Hayven will be turning 18 months on the 25th. She is 1 month older then the twins were when they were potty trained.
P.S.S. We got internet as of today so I will be posting more often again. Praise the LORD!!! And thanks to my hard working hero: Mr. Babe :)
