Our Crazy Life

Bella is doing the potty dance!

Posted on: February 25, 2010

Yaaaaaaaa!  We are officially in POTTY TRAINING MOOOODE for the 2nd time with little miss thang!  She was doing pretty well with potty training the first time around but we weren’t very consistent, in the mornings she would go with me, during the day sometimes and before bath time.  Well, then she got a really bad urinary tract infection a month ago and had to go to the hospital and that ended up being all kinds of bad!  It was a traumatic experience to say the least, for her & I.  She was DEATHLY afraid of the hospital’s toilet because hello,  that toilet is HUGE! Not to mention she had a fever of 104 and hospital bathrooms are FAH-REEEZING! If I was thinking like a smart mama and not a freak in a huge panic before we left for the hospital, I would have brought her potty insert so she felt more comfortable to pee in the cup!  But, I did not… so therefore, sitting her on the potty did NOT go well, at all and they ended up having to do the cathiter!  😦 BOO! Anyway, that lead to the traumatic experience part and refusing to get anywhere near a toilet!  So we stopped potty training completely and decided maybe she needed some time to get over all of that!

 Sooo, a month went by and we decided to try a second approach with it!  We went to walmart and bought a little frog toilet, I let her pick it out and thankfully it was the cheapest one there! (That’s my girl!)  I wanted the coolest looking one that she may actually WANT to sit on.  And sure enough, the second we got home, we took it in the bathroom and she sat on it in no time!!  Not only did she just sit on it but she had a little tinkle too!!! SUCCESS!!  So, the next day was Saturday (last weekend) and I decided that we are just going to throw some panties on her, put the potty chair in the living room (gross, I know but… don’t judge!) and let her have at it!  If she had an accident, I knew she wouldn’t like the way pee panties felt so maybe she would stop!  Well, she had a few accidents on Saturday but for most of the day, she ran to the potty chair each time she had to go sooo… we are doing something right!  

It is now Wednesday and boy is it a lot of work!  She is a smart little cookie so I know this will be over in no time, however… my biggest issue is PUBLIC.  I can barely stand to use a public restroom, let alone have my baby sit on a public toilet (EWWWWW)… and also, I am not sure how she is going to react sitting on a huge toilet (hence the hospital scenario).  But, I suppose we will see tomorrow because it will be the first day I will be out & about this week so, wish us luck! 

With that said, I will close the post with a few pics and a video!!
