I think we are approaching that phase...
Noah is still pretty young, just over a year and a half old, but he is really starting to show signs of being ready. His bowel movements are on a predictable schedule and when he has to poop he stops what he's doing, goes somewhere separate from everybody else and does his thing. Lately after he's done (if he's not too distracted) he will actually pull me over to his changing station, point to it or grab his diaper caddy.
Yesterday he did something that really took Matt and I by surprise. He went over and grabbed his diaper caddy and carried it over to me. I figured he was telling me he pooped so I checked his bum - nothing there. One minute later he pooped. So this time he was actually anticipating that he was about to go - now that's really something! It means he's understanding his body signals which is awesome!
So here's my questions for those millions of moms who have gone before me...
1. Do you think he's too young? He won't even be two until the end of summer. I don't want to rush him!
2. If we did train him soon, do you think he'd regress with the new baby showing up shortly?
3. What was your potty training method?? What worked for you?
I don't want potty training to be a long drawn out process that takes months and months. I've heard that once kids get it, they 'get it' and I just need to be consistent with him. That's why I say if he's too young I'd rather just wait then have it fail.
Anyways, Suggestion time mommas :)
