Poo Poo In the Pot-tay

Yes folks, its that time again. Potty Training, take 2!

Monday I had a luncheon with some lovely ladies who suggested that I let Kyra run around naked for a few days. I didn't quite understand how that makes her pee-pee in the potty, but I was willing to give it a try.

Tuesday, Run Naked Day 1- I take her to the potty every 15 minutes, not one accident. Granted she held her poo until I put a diaper on her for nap time, but none the less, I didn't have to clean up the floor once.

Wednesday, Run Naked Day 2- Good gosh, I can't believe this is working 2 days in a row!

Thursday, Run Naked Day 3- This is working so well that I decided to put panties on her after supper. Trouble hits, I'm cleaning puddles up off the floor. Its good thing I have hard wood.

Friday, No More Naked Baby Syndrome- Panties go on shortly after breakfast, the puddles begin.  We change her panties.  This goes on through 4 more pair of under-roo's, and then it clicks! The remainder of the day is spent in the same pair of drawers! Yea!

The most exciting part of the day is that not only is Kyra taking herself to the potty, but on one of these occations she poo'd in the potty! We clapped, yea'd and made a great big deal out of it. And just because I thought she needed to make it a little more special, we called my mom so Kyra could tell "Ga" what she did. After the phone call Kyra was so proud of her self every time she went to the potty she wanted to call "Ga".

This potty training is turning out much simpler than I thought, or maybe I've been really lucky on this one too. Hopefully I'm not jinxing the whole process...


  1. This is AWESOME news!! :D :D :D

    We haven't actively tried potty training yet for any length of time, but this whole naked theory is intriguing. Of course, it probably won't work for us because I'm a lazy sob and whisking her off to the loo every 15mins would probably drive me insane.

    I suppose as she grows we can just go from diapers to depends, eh? ;)

  2. i'm nervous to do the whole potty training bit and then have to stop every hour while driving cross-country next month ... maybe we'll try in between moving back there and the baby being born. hmmm ... have to think about that one.
