i only started training ziyi when she was 2 yr 3 mo. it was not easy at all! she'd only sit on the potty for a few seconds and refused to pee in it. besides, i was not consistent in training her too, she only goes diaperless on weekends for about 2-3 hours each day. initially she'd wet her pants and cried!
lately i tried to be more consistent, like letting her wearing only her panties in the evening after i picked her up from her kindy and also on weekends when we are not going out. here's a summary on her potty training timeline:
2 yr 3 mo:
mummy started potty training but was doing it inconsistently.
2 yr 6 mo:
mummy getting a bit more serious on this and there's a little improvement. ziyi's willing to tell that she needs to go but still cry and refuse to pee in the potty. so mummy had to tell her to squat down and splash her down under with water, pretending to wash her up. this worked well with her so far.
another worry cropped up in my head: will i be having problem in getting her to sit on the potty since she is now used to squatting down??!!
2 yr 7 mo:
when she started her new kindy, i told the teachers that ziyi would be diaperless from the 2nd week onwards, and surprisingly, i received good feedbacks from the teachers. she pee-d on the adult potty and she has only wet her pants once! that's a big improvement for ziyi. i do not have any problems getting her to sit on the adult potty to pee (with the kiddy potty cover on top), and she will tell me each time she needs to go. hooray!
next challenge: getting ziyi to poo poo on the potty... *scratch head*
