Potty training...

Yesterday we had a very successful day!!!  We only peed on the potty!!!  And that was with us going over to my mom & dad's house, out to eat & to Old Navy!!!  But, she did not poop yesterday.  That has been the big struggle.  The 2 days before she pooped in her underwear, not on the potty and then yesterday didn't go at all.  I am trying so hard, I will be so excited once she gets it!!!

And, for the record, Kobe was WAY more easy to potty train than this.  I started when he was around 2 years & 4 months.  S was 2 years & 3 months.

Some kids do that with the poo poo category. If you give her some extra fiber, and then put her on the potty numerous times with some new books she has never seen, and a timer that helps. If she stays there until the timer beeps, she gets rewarded even if she doesn't go b/c she tried and stayed there for a bit.
I had a friend who even brought in the mini DVD player for her son to watch his favorite DVD to get him to learn to poop in the potty. That kept him sitting there for a while, and it worked! :) LOL
Whatever gets them to get it, I guess. That is funny thAT KOBE was easier to train. They all are so different, I guess. Kendra was 2 years and 1 month old, and was amazingly easy! I sure do hope Grant is that way too :)!
HOpe you have a great day with the kids, and that she gets the poo poo category soon! Yay for the pee pee! :)

o trust me, i brought out the mini DVD player early next week because I had work I needed to do and couldn't sit and read to her like I did for kobe :)

the timer idea is a good one and rewarding for trying would be a good idea. i may try that depending on how today goes :)

thanks for the tips, I try everything, just with my own twist on it!
