Could It Be Potty Training Time Already?

Isabelle was bottomless, waiting for me as I tried to reach for the gadgets to change her. Then I heard her uttered her 'poo poo' signal, quite softly. She then started crying as if someone pinched her and while she cried, she said 'Deh-ty' (dirty) and pointed at the floor. She looked a little terrified at the same time and frantically lifted up her hands for me to carry her. And yes, she pooped on the floor.

I have been putting away the thoughts of potty training Isabelle. We have started to let her use potty few months back and then the process stopped. I can't remember when exactly, but I do remember she just suddenly refused to cooperate. We didn't want to force her if she doesn't want to and to make that into a nightmare for her. Perhaps she was just not ready.

Lately, she showed signs of disliking wet napkins and cloth diapers. So, maybe it is time to reconsider the idea of potty training her. Maybe now is the time.

I have received comments that I should start early, or should have started since the day she was born, or I should not wait this long. I am not sure if I am behind any schedule but I believe that everyone has their timing for everything.

To me : Welcome to lots of homework and extra tonnes of patience and endurance!

Hello Jenny~
Yes it is good because we can then save on diapers and it is a good news because nothing is getting any cheaper these days. :) But we are just going to try the training out to see if she is really ready. If not, then no harm waiting ;)

Hello Tracy,
It is wonderful to have you here and delightful to know that you like my blog. Thanks for following and I will surely do the same for you ;)
You have a lovely week ahead!

She can already receive instructions well..Therefore you can start her on toilet training. For me, I skip the potty stage and went straight to toilet.

Actually that is my back up plan. If the potty training fails, then we will just put it aside and just wait for toilet training time. :)
