Sienna decided to surprise mommy and go #2 in her potty on her last day as an EIGHT month old :)
How did I get her to do it?
well I go by a method called elimination communication (exact definition here)
basically, I follow her cues of when she needs to go and sit her on the potty. I try to keep her on a daily schedule as far as naps & meals so her poopy times are usually around the same time as well.
I know some 2.5 year olds who are scared of the potty, I wanted to make sure she was not one of those kids and that is why I bought her one this early on...to get her familiar with it. I'm not hardcore training her yet but its nice that she sits on it without being scared, once she went poops on it - I rewarded her with a snack so hopefully she continues to use it and make mommy proud
I even caught her in the process on video but for obvious reasons I cant post it here, not that you'd want me to anyway :)
