Potty training...

We are asked frequently how we "potty train" and I simply say...stay home for at least a week... then the parents usually walk away discouraged... Seriously, people are so busy running around that simple things like potty training is rocket science.

It is pretty simple around here...first, make sure your child is ready...good signs are dry at nap and especially when they wake up in the morning dry!!! We let our two year old wear underwear and use a timer every 30 min to remind mom...then when it dings we go try...if they go, they get a treat...(usually whatever candy I have) most likely m&m's...then we keep trying...if we go out, I use rubber pants over the underwear. If they don't make it to the biggy...we just do alot of changing of clothes...of course summer is easier when they can just run around in underwear.

Someone gave these to me and they are great!!! We usually wear ones like these but never payed these prices, people gave them to us...and we just keep passing them from kid to kid.

This site as well as many other's have some interesting advice.
