    Im in the same boat. I just had a newborn and my oldest daughter turns 2 today. Weve been trying and she enjoys going on her little potty but ive been ready to commit. Just a busier schedule plus breastfeeding a newborn. Im already exhausted. Ready to give it a whirl, thanks for the advice!

      Congratulations on your newborn! I totally feel this mama, it is not easy! It will happen! Do what works for you and your family! When the time is right everything will fall into place and your little one will be using the potty!!

    I’m getting ready to potty train my 2yo twins and reading your tips & tricks has really helped me prepare for it! Looking forward to starting my journey! Thanks so much! 🙂

    This was a great read and seems like it’s going to be really helpful. How long did you give your little one to sit on the potty before you allowed her to get up and try again at the next interval?

      Hi Heather! Thank you for taking the time to read my article and I hope that it helps you successfully potty train your little one! To answer your question, If she had to pee it usually happened pretty fast. I would let her sit there for 1-2 min to try if not. Most the time if she waited that long she didn’t go, she just wanted to play with her potty toys which was ok. You start to understand your child’s body language and you will know if they truly have to go. I was giving her tons of water, so like I said if she had to go when I put her on potty it happened right away.

    I am on day 2 of doing this same method, but my daughter has yet to pee on the potty and has had numerous accidents all over the house. She sits on the toilet and literally pees on the floor within 2 minutes of getting off the toilet. What do you suggest? Should I wait and try again next month? Or stick with this a little while longer.

    Thanks for this. We are on day 2 and feeling frustrated. Day 1 seemed horrible, but Day 2 we are doing better sticking to an every 20 minute routine. I am keeping the faith!

  6. This was super helpful! Thank you! My LO has a bad cold right now, so she takes a cup to bed. I might wait until it passes to get her started. Any advice for kids who get thirsty at night?

    Do you give a M&M for just sitting on the potty or do they need to actually go? My little boy (2yrs) can squeeze out a drop of pee just to get a treat 🙂

    Hi, thank you for this article!
    We’ve been wanting to potty train our baby since she turned 2 (she’s 2 yrs and 8mths now)but there’s so much info out there, it’s kind of overwhelming. I was curious as to what kind of toys you put on the potty toy basket vs the prize toys. We’re trying to get everything setup to start asap. With this whole coronavirus situation both me and the hubs are home and it’s the best scenario for this to finally happen!!! *crossing my fingers!!

      Hi! You are very welcome! I agree, there is so much info and that’s why I wanted to sum up all the info I gained and put it into one article because it worked for us!! So for potty toys- I put regular toys that she was into at the time. For example, stacking toys, musical toys, a bath toy.. basically anything to keep her entertained for a little (was not anything fancy) but I made sure the toys in the basket were only played with during potty time. For the prizes, I just went to the dollar store and got a couple of “New” toys for her. Bubbles, a doll, kitchen accessories. Whatever the store had at the time! Anything that was new, was exciting for her! I am right there with you- my second daughter is now 2 and I have to do this all over again! I’ll pray for you, you pray for me! We’re in this together 🤣 good luck ❤️
