I missed so much I think my brain just dumped the first 15 posts I read because I haven't finished my first cup of coffee yet.
Abra- I got my cycle back way earlier, but had crazy baby fever right before also. Crazy baby fever. Followed by me demanding my husband get a vasectomy because my logical brain and my hormomonal brain were fighting and I knew which one I wanted to win.
Re: potty- I think Jaimee is right on. There is absolutely nothing wrong with starting potty learning as soon as a child is ready, but I have never seen full success before 18 months in any kids. I think I have potty learned....probably 15-ish kids. Boys tend to around 2.5 and girls tend to a lot earlier. Kids with emotional or sensory problems around 3-4. ODD was accident free by 18 months, but that is not the norm at all. Most kids continue to have accidents until at least 2. It takes dedication and patience, and a regression is very normal.
