Okay, mamas, I'm back with another potty-training question.
If you didn't read my other thread, the short version is that my 16 M.O. DD started peeing/pooping in her little potty yesterday morning. Since then, she's peed every single time I've put her on it and pooped in it twice. I've been trying hard to teach her the sign for "potty" so she can tell me if she has to go, but she hasn't caught on yet and so far things have only "worked" because I've been taking her in there every hour or so. Her diapers have NOT all been dry, in between potty trips either.
Sooo, am I wasting my time? Making life harder on myself? She seems to like using the potty, but I'm just not sure yet what I'm doing or if it's worthwhile right now.
I have ordered her some padded, cotton undies and I'm hoping that helps her figure things out. I just don't want to be wasting my time with something that she's just not ready for yet. She does HATE diaper changes, so I am hopeful about this but it seems silly. Today at the gym childcare I asked them if she could use their baby potty (since she hadn't gone for an hour or so) and they clearly thought I was nuts because of her age. But she DID pee in it.
Help?! I need advice? Should I just chill out and let her use it whenever, or should I keep putting her on it every hour to catch the pee as long as she seems happy about it? What am I doing?!
