Don't waste you $$ on cute little "potties" or on Pull-Ups. It take a toddler only one "accident" to realize the Pull-Ups are a glorified diaper. They are not going to feel any urine running down their leg and they will watch as you dispose of if in the trash (just like their diaper). Use real cloth underwear and an adult sized toilet. How many public bathrooms have a toddler sized potty ? And do you really want to carry the small plastic potty everywhere you go? If your child is ready it will only take weekend; not weeks or months.

I never comment but had to share my feelings. I have potty trained three kids and can tell you to avoid the chairs with all the extra music and stickers or whatever else they may have. All those distractions turn the chair into a toy. I have the one with the stickers - cute idea but putting a roll of stickers in full view of the child is just too tempting to leave alone. Get ready to listen to the music all day every day, too. Especially annoying when you have multiple little kids in the house. I suggest the simple Ikea potty and then you can add your own embellishments as rewards (that are in YOUR control).

I love that first pic of the baby with the newspaper. Hey everyone who is working on or getting prepared for potty training. I liked that the potty chairs advertised referred to training "the baby" not so much the toddler. I've got the sweetest potty training technique ever. As a fun way to put it, since most parents call it the "dreaded potty time" I call it my sweetest "Taboo" potty training. I successfully trained over 10 babies by the time they were less than 15 months old. The technique is easy but it gets a little lengthy just getting the parent/caregiver on board. I'll find out how I can share my technique with all the interested moms. One thing I can say is "you only need a simple potty, not bells and whistles as those things are distracting and usually don't get the child to sit there. My way the baby likes it, usually from day one. I'll be back in touch soon, but I just had to send a little comment today.
