She Said Goodbye to Daytime Diapers

Oh yes ! The trick is, we have to remove her diapers at daytime for her to tell us it’s time to do the potty. When she’s with her diapers, most of the time, she won’t even bother to inform us that it’s poo time. So here are the tricks which worked for us:

- Encouragement. Kids love to be applauded and praised – and know what, this doesn’t cost a thing. Louna is just so proud when she does it. There was one afternoon when she wanted to keep her potty because Papa hadn’t seen it yet. And Papa was still at work! So I tried to negotiate to keep the potty chair inside the toilet, without 'flushing’ the content, but she wanted it to be near her inside her playroom. She doesn’t trust Maman when it comes to potty matters. Imagine the odor propagating everywhere inside the house! Panic! I called up her Papa and explained the situation. They talked over the phone and Papa said Bravo Louna. After then, she took her potty chair and headed to the toilet. It was ok to flush her business. Whew.

C'est bien, bravo louna! ready na yata to go to school.
Ganyan din si cathy at louis noon, ayaw dalhin ang potty to flush in the toilet kaya we bought a toilet seat reducer. It does helps and it is less messy, less odor since the waste goes immediately into the toilet to be flushed away. you might try it, kids always likes to press the flush button. :-)

Hen hao tukayo, hen hao! can't wait to see more of Louna's progress. But me sure, she'll grow-up nicely.

And thx to your post, I'm learning too once I have my own.

I also have a 3 month old baby girl (na super kulit) for the moment she is still sooo cute kaya kahit super heavy ng diaper nya happy pa kami ng husband ko to change them.. but to be honest about it im scared when she reaches certain age how will we learn her to do her own..thanks for sharing this post..

Thanks Mommies ;)

Lucille, I already have one, kaya lang, medyo na-trauma yata si Louna coz we tried it when she was still too young and muntik ng mahulog.. she still doesn't want to retry it.. she's using toilet reducer chez la nanny tho ..

Hilda, cross the bridge when you get there, different strokes for different folks.. i've listed the strategies which worked for us, which is not a guarantee that they would work in your case.. but you know what, you will know what would work for you in time - mom's instinct, ya know.
