My DD will be turning 2 on May 10th and in the past couple of weeks has taken on the EXTREMELY messy (and GROSS!!!!!!!!!) habit of taking off her diaper pretty much after every pee or poop.<br><br>
The worst is when she poops during the night or her nap and takes it off and plays in it (last time she even included her dolls in the play fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: as they had poop on their little plastic hands like they were shoveling it! EWW!)<br><br>
Lately, she has been pooping and telling me while she poops so I run her to the potty, sit her on it and by then she's already done....... then I put her poop from the diaper into the toilet and she gleefully says "byyyyyyyyyye poopoo!! BYE!" as we flush it down.<br><br>
Obviously, she's getting close to potty training if she's doing all of this...<br><br>
What tips or ideas do you have for encouraging her? She pees constantly, so that's going to be really hard, but I was thinking about putting her on the potty when she wakes up, before and after lunch and dinner and right before bed... does that sound ok? Too little, too much?<br><br>

It sounds like she is ready. It's up to you on how you want to do it. Is she dry when she gets up? Then put her on the potty right away. Then every hour or two put her on the potty. See if you can catch her before she potties and get her up there so she knows where she needs to go. If you don't mind the mess, go for panties.<br><br>
If you need to keep her diaper on for naps, consider either putting the diaper on backwards or using duct tape to keep it on.

Ugh, unfortunately she's mastered backwards and duct taped dipes. LOL<br><br>
Not sure what I'll do about all that mess but we are trying the potty a lot...... She hasn't GONE in there yet, but we'll see <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
