I wrote a post about my 20 month old - heard some great advice from people, but I've also been thinking more and wondering about what steps to take, if any, now.
DD was nearing "completion", then we had a bit of a set back and she started wearing diapers a lot more. I think we are moving out of that again, and she pees and poops on the toilet, though still a lot of misses. She doesn't potty on her own, or show interest in going on her own, and rarely tells us she has to go. (except at 5 in the morning! ;) funny how that works!)
I was just talking with my husband, and we decided to try her in underwear more, try and get rid of those diapers. But I guess I'm feeling a bit....stressed. I suppose I hoped she would have graduated by now, even though I know I shouldn't feel that, and that we did EC because we wanted to practice that communication. I've been reading a few other posts and I'm wondering if, OK, why don't I just come out and say it, if we somehow "failed" because we aren't done?? Oh, and also wondering if people are thinking I went to all the trouble of that crazy EC thing and she will probably not be "finished" any sooner. These are all the thoughts that I KNOW I SHOULD NOT BE THINKING.
I'm wondering if we should be approaching things differently now? Are there aspects of regular "potty training" that should start to come in to how we do things? (and what would those be?) I was thinking about trying to get a stool so she could climb up to the toilet and "do it herself" because she doesn't like the potty. I've been talking up "peeing in the toilet" and making sure I vocally observe if she is dry and how that feels, and if she is wet, and that she can tell Mummy or Daddy if she needs to pee....
This is a very non-specific post, but if anybody has any thoughts on my ramblings I'd love to hear them. Anybody with a 20 month old still ECing and not done?
