I am dreading this whole 'potty training' thing....
Ryan bought Ellie a little potty today, along with some "Punzel" big girl undies. Ellie is stoked about the undies, (as you can see in the bottom picture....hiking them up past her belly button) but how do I even go about potty training this girl? I have read a few articles where they just dove right in and put the undies on their children, and when they had an accident, just made it seem yucky and told their kiddos that they don't want pee pee all over themselves, so they should go on the big girl potty.
Sounds messy if you ask me.. but I am willing to try anything at this point.
I have also read articles where they have a "potty party" with a full two days of events including rewards of treats and snacks and movies if they go on the potty.
I also read about a "potty candle" that they get to blow out if they are successful.
These all seem great....but I just don't understand how to get them to tell you that they need to go potty in the first place! Lately, Ellie will tell us right when she is going pee in her diaper....but it's always too late.
So....with all this being said, I need all the help that I can get with this potty training stuff!
Mothers! How did you potty train your little one? Any tricks or suggestions?? I would love to hear from you ...because I would be one happy mother if I didn't have to buy diapers again :)
