Baby’s First Day Of Potty Training

You will be amazed to know that I spend around RM160 just on disposable diapers for Baby every month. I have been procrastinating potty training her as I have been terribly busy with my online store. Alycia and Sherilyn were potty trained when they were 2 years old. I know Baby is highly trainable too but I am just too lazy to get out from my comfort zone and break my back while potty training her. But now, all of a sudden, I feel the big pinch on our wallets. So today, I decided that I MUST potty train Baby. Before I took the diaper off her butt, I talked to her …. face to face, seriously and gently. I told her that she has to stop wearing diapers. I told her that she has to help daddy and mummy save money. I told her that the money we save can be used to buy…. ICE CREAM for her haha! Since she loves going to school and absolutely yearns learning ballet, I have been telling her that if she wants to go to school and learn ballet, she cannot wear diapers anymore. She seems matured enough to understand everything and I managed to knock sense into her head. So far she has been A-ok wearing a panty…. though she would go to the potty every 5 minutes initially… and I have been breaking my back washing potty. The potty is placed in the living room for her convenience to ease herself anytime.

I shall see how the 2nd day of potty training goes tomorrow. Wish us luck!!

  1. Get the maid to wash the potty instead of you doing it yourself.

    I know it can be quite mah my JL, likes to use the adult WC, there’s once she wanted to climb up herself and almost fell in it, now every time i make sure I follow and carry her up and down the wc.

  2. hey there,
    stumble upon your page from barbs! interesting story you got here. I’m already learning how to be a mommy in the future and these stories will help me a lot. I love how your so gentle with your kids ๐Ÿ™‚ love reading your entry!


  3. Good luck… I started potty training my daughter (about the same age as Baby C) when she was 1.5. Really saved a lot since then. Now she still uses diaper at night as I was lazy to get up in the middle of the night. But we did save a lot since she stopped using diapers!

  4. good for you… i’m delaying william coz his speech is slower than his peers and my prev maid was a useless bum, and now i’m letting the new maid settle down first before i put him off diapers.. lotsa excuses.. but i seriously dread all the “accidents” lar… haha. i think will be tough for me coz he loves his diapers, unlike his sister last time
