potty training ...day 1


yeah, i'm on a long leave now...one of the reason being is, i want to potty train Jihan...a very nice potty was bought few months ago...and she loves the potty...


so, yesterday we started our training...she woke up in the morning, had her breakfast and later her bath...i told her that her diapers were already finished and she only had to wear her underwear...at first, she was quite reluctant...then after a while she got used to the idea...


we reminded her every now and then to tell us if she wants to pee...but as expected, the answer was "No"...she was playing with her toys and reading her books....after 1 hour, i brought her to her potty and asked her to sit on it...but she refused to take off her underwear and pretended to pee on the potty...so, no waste product yet in the potty....


later, i went to take my bath and she was left with my maid and my sister downstairs...soon after bath, i heard her crying....and everybody was laughing downstairs....guess what..??she already peed in her underwear..!!!...i wasn't sure if she cried of embarressment or scared of being scolded or what...but i told her that it's okay and we changed her underwear....


later, my cousin came with her kids and the children was playing around together...while we were having our lunch of homemade pizza, Jihan came around and told me, "kencing..kencing.." and her panty was already wet...this time, on her tricycle...so, 2nd time changing of her underwear...


then, it was time to take her nap...i put her back on her diapers and she slept peacefully....


it was a good experience for her but quite a tough work for me and my maid (to clean all her mess)...at the same time, i realized that she refused to poo without her diapers...and later in the evening, she had difficulty to poo due to hard stool...


we bought more panties for her at Carrefour yesterday...and we'll start training again later today and more and more later....

hello,

maybe u can use this as a reference on what i did to potty train my first daughter:

1. to try make her understand what is buang air kecil and buang air besar means.

2. let her go at the toilet bowl if not they will get scared to do their business at the toilet bowl.

3. have to bring them at least every one hour to the bathroom. even though they did not want to pee at that time. it does take a long time for the water to come out..u can spray a little water at their feet, that way they might get the feeling that they want to pee.

good luck..:-)

hassan pun baru je belajar potty training..so far siang2 tu memang tak pakai diapers la..malam je pakai tapi kena kerap kejutkan dia kencing la mlm2....mencabar sikit le...sebab dia pun mengantuk2 kan...kalau tak memang dia takkan kencing dlm diapers tu...dia tahan...

good luck Jihan!!!
