But boo hoo, I got so excited that I immediately put the diaper back on and missed the pee and the second poo while I was rinsing the sink out. At least I am starting to get an idea.

When you first started, did you just try to learn their patterns or did you start cueing right away? I cued when she poo'd in the sink but I didn't (obviously) when she pee'd and poo'd in the diaper since I was busy rinsing the sink.

BTW, the other baby is asleep. I figure to make this work, I will have to keep them on different schedules for now.

Congratulations! It's cool that you're trying this with your twins.

Dh and I always wait for the post-poo "cleansing pee." Don't know if all babes do this, but ours certainly does.

Congrats!! That is great!

My dd always pees and poops at the same time (when I'm lucky enough to catch a poop. Still working on that.) But I don't know which comes first! I usually give her a little bit of time. She concentrates. When she turns her attention to something else or squirms, I know she's done.

Anyway, to answer your question. I did both: found the pattern and cued. When I would change a wet diaper, I would say to dd "Psss. You peed." When I would bring her to the potty, I would say the same, except I would make the cue sound first. If she peed, I say "You're peeing."
