  • potty training daughter with my ic?

    I have been having the most difficult time potty training my daughter! As much as i go to the bathroom i take her in there with me. sometimes she dont want to go cuz she dont have to go when i do. my husband says that a mother should potty train their daughter, and father train his son. banghead Well, this is frustrating me cuz im tring so hard and shes really trying to be a big girl, but its not east with my ic and training her. I have been taking her every hour. and if i have to go i show her and she tries it too. a couple of times she acually went and we have been putting her in pull ups instead of dipers. Can you other mothers give me some sugestions on how to make it easier on both of us or am i doing it right? hi

    Just suggestions, but instead of taking her every hour or other time frame --- try asking her every hour if she needs to go. When she's ready she will do it. And if she tells you after she goes, she's almost there. Give her lots of praise when she's successful and don't mention the "accidents." Some children are ready for potty training at age two or younger, but most are closer to three --- so don't try to rush her.

    Most of all, be relaxed about it.
