The time for potty training Lilly seems to be almost here and we are so not prepared!
We haven’t been as encouraging with Lilly yet, I must admit. As she’s not quite 2 and a half yet, I’m in no way pushing for Lilly to start using the potty. BUT – with seeing Amelia using the big girl toilet daily, Lilly wants to be like her big sis!
Boy oh boy are we not ready for this!
I have got the potty out and put it in the bathroom so that Lilly can use it as she pleases – with Amelia the potty was in the living room, but Lilly now associates needing to pee, with going to the bathroom, which don’t get me wrong, it’s good, but I do kind of doubt she’ll always make it upstairs in time!
We’ve already had accidents!
I don’t mean pee accidents either. These are the accidents we were lucky to not experience with Amelia. These are the accidents that require a shower to clean up and not a million baby wipes. Lilly has started to take her nappy off, whenever and wherever she likes, without any warning.
I guess it’s good that Lilly is showing signs she’s ready to start potty training, but I definitely don’t feel like I’m ready yet. It doesn’t seem long since we potty trained Amelia and even with Amelia, it seems like we’ve gone backwards a little as she’s hit a phase of not wanting to go to the toilet and holding her pee in – which leads to a lot of accidents.
If anyone has any potty training tips for the second time round – do let me know! I guess I should just embrace that Lilly seems “ready” and prepare myself for pee everywhere again.
