:: Family Happenings - potty training day 2

We decided that before this little one comes at the end of March
we needed to potty train Reese.
I don't want to have two in diapers.
And recently, she's been coming to us to change her diaper,
so we knew she was ready.
So for 3 days, we're doing the 3 day potty training method.
We did this with Ava and it worked . . . I was amazed!

Yesterday was day 1 and Reese did awesome.
It's all about positive reinforcement and letting them think they're in control.
Constantly telling them, "Let me know if you need to go pee pee on the potty"
instead of "do you need to go potty?"
By the second or third time yesterday,
she was coming to me to tell me that she needed to go.

With Ava, day 2 was the dreaded potty training day.
So I wasn't looking forward to it today, but she's only had one accident this morning.
And since then she's done great.
Hopefully the rest of the day and tomorrow will be just as good!

It will be so nice to have a 2 month break from diapers.
