What you should know about potty training!

Hah!! Probably this post doesn't really suit to those who still has no baby yet or maybe those whose not yet married..Hehe ya lah why need to be bothered by something that you don't have to deal now kan??? Unless of course, you already have a plan to have a baby soon and wanted to learn all things about potty train.

Before this, i did write one post about me wanting to train daughter (she is 21 months now) to use the toilet for small and big business. You can find my post here. The post is about the training pants i bought for daughter. Last month, i thought daughter will be ready to be out from her disposable diaper as she already showing some signs of readiness..So the 6 training pants i bought going to be handy while training daughter. Sekalinya....*doink!!! Slap forehead*. Let me tell you what happend on the first few days of training..(Day time story is based in MIL as i only trained daughter during nite time):
  • 1st Day ~ Wuowwww!!! It was the worst day of all!!! Hehehe Daughter who was never out from her dispo diaper before peed and pooped everywhere she wants. Can you imagine, she poop on the table, floor and her poo-poo (Lembik-lembik poop somemore) was everywhere in our house. I spent most of my time at home cleaning her pee and poop.
  • 2nd Day ~ ditto to 1st day. All, me and MIL can do is constantly reminding daughter that she is supposed to pee at the potty.
  • 3rd Day ~ Daughter managed to pee one time at the potty. Hmmmm..improvement there. But still..my night was spent on cleaning the poo-poo and pee.
  • 4th Day ~ Daughter can tell us she wants to pee at her potty, but still she leaks la. Hehee..
  • 5th Day ~ Nah!!!! Can see amazing progress already. She can pee and poop in the potty most of the times.
  • 6th Day ~ Almost 85 % successful
  • 7 th Day ~ Wohoooooooo!!!!! It was amazing to see daughter finally able to control her bladder. 95 % to graduate from her dispo diaper.
  • skip to 10th Days ~ And yeah!!!!!!!!!! Daughter has graduated from dispo diaper and now, she is no longer using a dispoo diaper nor a training pants during day time. Nyehhhh!!!!
  • Now ~ Daughter can poop and pee anytime she wants.

The whole training seasion took about 10 days and i'm so thankful daughter doesn't need a longer time to be trained. The key of successful training :

  • Though she peed and pooped everywhere, we never punished her for that. What i did was, remind daughter that she is supposed to use the potty to relieve herself. Of course she didn't get it at first, but after constant reminder, she finally understand what we told her.
  • We put the potty at a our living hall. Easy and near mah...
  • Everytime daughter had an accident of pooping, We act nonchalantly like nothing big have ever happend. Cool act lah konon..
  • We praised daughter everytime she used the potty. Kira macam moral support lah..hehehe
  • But funny is, i never reward daughter with anything for her accomplishment. Hmmmm..feel like a bad mommy pulak!!

Now..I'm so happy as i can save at least RM38.90 for disposable diaper. Hehehe I'm eliminating the usage of disposable diapers for daughter now. Yep!! Just bought 3 CD (Cloth Diaper) from cutietots for daughter night use. I'm sure, within few months of probably sooner, daughter will be able to control her bladder and no more peeing while sleeping. Lets hope the best for her.

mom2ashleyaidan said...

congrats!! What a great milestone. Now that she is potty trained, a new set of challenges awaits you. They can't hold on to their pee for long... So when she has the urge to pee... You got to scramble especially if you're out and about.... Good luck! You'll get the hang of it...

elcynthia said...

haha Ty, i fondly remembered those days... ya, sana-sini buat 'bisnes'. one time when my son wanted to tell me he wants to pee, he ran to me (from the living room to the kitchen), so the pee like...everywhere...hahah.
