My 8-month old DD will go on the potty when I remember to take her there. Is there any way to help her cue me that she needs to go or is it too late for that? She doesn't seem to mind going in her diaper, nor does she seem bothered by a wet diaper, but I wouldn't mind moving towards more catches that misses. Right now she goes in the potty a couple times a day since I just take her whenever I go to change her and find her dry.

My ds is 10 months and rarely cues and we have been full time since he was 4 days old. I think the key to increasing the number of catches is simply putting her on the potty more. I just put ds on the potty lots all day and lately he has been having only 2-3 misses a day. I guess he holds it cause he knows he'll be on the potty soon enough. He is starting to cue a little more, maybe once a day? I just don't wait for him:)

Ditto Rebecca. We offer at consistent intervals, and DD (almost 12 mths) does great.

:doh: i'm not sure why i didn't think of that. i guess i'll just offer more instead of waiting for her to signal. thanks!! :goodvibes:
