DD is 19 m/o and we can now officially take her out and about in just underwear! She is going all night with no potty or wetting her dipe.
So now for my questions.
Is it ok that she holds her pee for a few to several hours? (longest ever was 14 overnight plus 2hrs until she went) When we are out she refuses to go on the big potty and will hold her pee for 4hrs if need be (although I am going to get our little potty back today from a friend)
At home she will pee whenever and wherever still...How can we make it so she won't want to just pee on the rug or wherever she is at home?
Also she still is not actually communicating when she needs to go. Sometimes she will fuss and act like she wants to nurse but she really needs to use the potty, other times she won't communicate at all. I offer every hour and she gets frustrated with this, but since she is not giving me a valid signal IDK when to potty her. I am trying to just trust her. She won't wear the waterproof pants over her underwear anymore and I trust her with that and I ask her if she needs to go but she won't answer me still or will say yeah and then not go. So how can I encourage her to actually communicate it? (we have been doing EC since birth but she had like a 6 month log potty strike from 9 m/o) I always say "pssss" and potty, pee, poo etc
