Potty Training Day 1

So, we decided to potty train Emma Mae today. We're using the same three day intense potty training boot camp we used for Jake. Yesterday, I spent about two months worth of diaper money on stickers, treats, books and other bribes to positively encourage her to go on the potty.

This morning we got rid of the diapers and handed her some TinkerBell underwear. I have been peed on one time and cleaned up several messes. But, I think she is way more receptive to this than Jake was. He absolutely hated the idea of not wearing a diaper. She was able to get a little pee and one poop in the potty today. I think all of the incidents were more of an accident or just being in the right place at the right time, but I'm hopeful that she will catch on quickly and we will be done with diapers forever.

  1. I'm jealous...and so proud of you. Keep it up and let me know if you need anything from me come Saturday. I believe she'll get it. Geez, that chick was ready when you potty training Jake. No idea when I'll try Max again. - Katha
