Marshmallows...their like magic!  We used marshmallows to reward potty activities.  Big for #2, Little for #1.  Each time they went on the potty, even just a little, they got a marshmallow.  We NEVER gave them one besides potty training.  We started when they were aware of the toilet and could understand.  At 2 yr b-day, they got underwear.  Many pairs, because it will take...oh...about 5-12/day until they start to understand!  Every hour, we put them on the potty (even...

My baby is 4 1/2 months old and we have the Kanoe. It is great. We have started using it. We put it up next to the bed for easy access. She sleeps in it for most of the night, then in the morning hours I pull her into bed to nurse and sleep for a few hours. I don't think I will give up the bed sharing for quite awhile. I am happy with the kanoe, but i'm not sure it was a necessary purchase. The way its going, if I didn't have it, i would bed share then move baby to...
