Potty training at 18 months…I must be mad! DAY 1

Although it might seem early (especially to my dear mum who thinks Harry is way too young to start using a potty) every child is different and it is so obvious when Harry is doing a stinky – contorted face, bright red cheeks, bulging eyes and not to mention the sound effects! It seems a shame not to start putting him on a potty. I must admit I started trying him on the potty when he was 12 months old. He seemed to take to it and really liked putting his foot in it – had to nip that one in the bud rather quickly. So anyway, considering we are now trying for a second baby, it seems like as good a time as any to go cold turkey on nappies during the day. Harry is sitting in front of me at the moment with his chubby little bum on show and seems to be enjoying the freedom down below. We have already had one accident – he wee’d in his shape sorter 🙂  “No problem” I said, “but you must do wee,wee’s in your potty next time”. This coupled with racing to the potty every 5 minutes so he can sit on it just in case is what I shall be doing for the next few days. With any luck we will get a wee in the actual potty and then he can get a sticker on his chart. That should set some cogs in motion.
