It's my Potty

Conrad gets up each morning with Isabelle and puts her on the potty in hopes of potty training her. Me? I'm asleep with Grace..or more appropriately, usually JUST went to sleep with Grace. That's our arrangment: I pull the all nighters and he does the potty training :) Since I'm nursing, there's really no choice there, I guess!

This is Isabelle holding her Jelly Beans, which she gets to choose one if she goes potty. Anyone else have any tips on Potty Training? I haven't had the chance to read any PT books...so we have NO CLUE what we are doing or if we are doing it right?!

Jelly Beans are good - with Carlie, it was M&M's - I would take Carlie potty about 15 minutes after she would eat or drink and before she went down to sleep and when she woke up. She took to it really well and was potty trained in about a week. Lots of cheering goes a long way too. Good luck!

Danielle & Conrad - I need you to figure this out! Remember, I read your blog to know what to expect w/ Abby. She peed on her toilet the other day, kind of by chance..(she was getting ready to get into the bath so she was naked and sat down and wa-laaa). So, PLEASE, read the book, go through the trauma, and write an educational post to spare me the trouble. :)

We used a sticker chart (it's the same reward system as the jelly beans). I had a harder time with Maddie. She had no interest in the potty, and then all of a sudden poof she wanted to use the potty. My best advice is repetion repetion.
