See this kid losing her shit over these marshmallows – she woke up on Sunday and declared she was a “big girl” and would be no longer wearing nappies. And just like that she was toilet trained. I shit you not.
I’d like to share my tips with you, except to say the age of three, or roundabouts, has been the magic toilet training number in our house. With Number One we tried to start way earlier when she wasn’t ready and it was excruciating. It dragged on and on. With Number 2 we waited until she was closer to three years old and within a few days she was nappy free and with Number 3 we just decided we’d let her tell us when she was ready. And blow me down, that’s exactly what she did, one month off turning three. A girl who knows her own mind.
Got any toilet training tips?
This is exactly what my Mr 3 did. One night declared ‘I’m a big boy, I want to wear jocks to bed like daddy’. I tried everything I could to convince him to wear nappies because I could not bear the thought of getting on the ‘wash sheets every day/wet mattress every day’ bandwagon while there was a newborn in the house.
Well he insisted so I put 5 towels (no exaggeration) under his sheets and went to sleep. That was 3 weeks ago and there has been not one accident. I really subscribe to the ‘they will do it when they’re ready’ line of thinking with most things … and once again it’s proven itself to be a good strategy!
never. ever. buy. pull-ups … and yep, let ’em tell you. and be aware that factors such as respiratory problems can delay nighttime dryness … think that’s it, except to say thank huggies I never have to go through that again. xt
Ok so I am SUPPOSED to be commenting on your awesome post about raising your girls but … this pic, of your kid. Effing priceless. Love how she burnt the fuck out of those marshmallows.
Love to you, Bianca. Cannot believe you JUST tweeted me when i was on here! Do you have a magic camera?
Yes I have a magic camera. If only I could get it to magic you here. love you xx
