Baby Bird has a milestone that is creeping up on us.
I’ve slowly been preparing myself and our family for this one. I’ve been googling, chatting with family and our daycare and having pre-milestone conversations with Baby Bird and Papa Bird. We still have a few months to go, but I’m pretty excited about it.
Is it weird that I am excited? I know it’s going to be stressful on her and us, but I am looking forward to it. I know this milestone will bring defiance and tears (her defiance, probably my tears), but in the end it will be yet another step in her life that I was a part of. Helping her through these milestones brings me closer to her as her parent and helps me to realize everything that my mom (and dad) went through while raising me.
Sappiness aside and excited or not – I still need all of the help I can get on this!
To help make this transition easy on children and parents, Pull-Ups has created a number of starting out articles. They tackle situations at home, daycare and even while traveling.
They’ve even created a Potty Dance complete with steps and music to help turn potty training into something that is fun to learn.
As you know, Baby Bird loves to dance so I think incorporating this potty dance as a part of her potty training experience will help to make her more comfortable while learning this new skill. Both Jessica Holmes and Traci Melchor show how the dance is done on YouTube.
So help me out here. Do you have any tips that made potty training a breeze? How old was your child(ren) when you started on potty training? First time mom here… help!
