The hardest part of motherhood for me is the time of potty training or toilet training. It can blow your head up and burst your blood out of your nerve! OMG! I must say.
At first (week 1) I was so upset, I’m having trouble on cleaning up the mess. I almost feel giving up; but I was so eager to teach my baby girl that’s why I searched alternative ways on training. I read lots of blog advice and talked to my friend with a fully trained baby. I got her advice and go on with our training patiently. Week 1, I let her wear her training panties; a cloth diaper together with an absorbent/thick cloth diaper and observe the time of her pee or poop. Things get smoothly though it’s tiring every hour and everyday. 🙂
Week 2: Just a pajama alone the whole day except 10.30 am and I taught her every hour to say wee-wee ( pee in English). This is the time of her poop so she has to wear diaper. From 4 pcs. diaper a day down to 3-2 pcs. diaper a day. Sometimes she had her bowel movement 2 times a day so she had to wear 3 pcs of diaper a day. *Training smoothly done.
Week 3: She knows how to say wee-wee when she’s done peeing. Haha how terrible the mess she made. Atleast she can say wee-wee if she knew she’d wet her pants. *Stressful week I had, got to change pants for time to time. 2pcs. diaper a day.
Week 4: She knows how to say wee-wee if she needed to go. Tada! SUCCESS! My baby girl is already half-trained! Half-trained for me means she knows how to pee on a potty chair but doesn’t know how to control bowel movement. I’m overwhelmed today. She said it exactly and done it the way i like. Baby girl is easy to train than a baby boy. And ooops! what i was so happy about is that my baby is only 1.9 years old! She’s so young to half-trained, mostly it’s 2years old and up before you train your kids so they can understand and communicate well to you. I MADE IT! lovelove to both of us.
I add some scenario of us. Earlier today, she said “momie wee-wee” and then I say ” ok let’s go the bathroom and sit on your potty chair, and please don’t play with the water”. She likes to flush her little toilet every time. Then I was surprised she made it in just 5 seconds of sitting; mostly we’re in the bathroom for almost 5mins and she plays water first before she peed. After 1hour she said it again that she wants to pee, badly there’s someone using the toilet so I have to say it to her and help her pee outside. As i was expecting she did not make it. And after 5 mins of playing, she took off her pants alone and went outside,sit and pee. hahaha how cute she was when I’m watching her. My patients on training is worth it!
So that’s my basis on how I say she already half- toilet trained! 🙂
So bad I forgot to take a picture of that moment.. But it’s ok I was recorded it already. Sept. 14, 2012.
