Questions? Comments?

The reason why I haven’t posted in awhile is because I don’t know what to write about. Things have been going pretty smoothly and I haven’t faced any new challenges in awhile. I know I have some new readers who are new mothers and I was wondering if any of you had any questions for me, comments, or suggest a topic for me to write about.

Potty Training

I haven’t officially started potty training Kiana although she has shown an interest in using the potty for about 5 months now. I will put her on when she asks or if I ask her and she says yes, but I haven’t gotten serious about potty training her. Lately though she has started pulling off her own diaper so I think it’s time to start. I just don’t know how I’m going to go about doing this. My idea is to let go without a diaper, but the problem with that is that I’m unable to pick her up and race her to the nearest potty at the first sign of having to go (I have a potty chair for any room in the house and potty seats on both toilets). I recently bought Pull-Ups and my other idea is to just put her on the potty every hour and see if she goes, and praise her when she does.

I’m not into rushing this, but does anyone have any suggestions for what worked for them?
