Gee..can i toilet train at 11 months?lol
This is the third morning in a row that Lachlan has woken up(after sleeping from around 7:30 at night, til 6:30 AM) completely dry! What is up with that? LOl...I have never had any of my kids go older than 2 without toilet training and my 3 yo was a bit younger than 2..but 11 months!..I am loving making dipes..she can't train too early..LOL!

LOL! :)

I've said that I can't train Alex until he decides to walk. If I have to carry him to the potty, it sorta ruins the entire idea. Haha!

Well, if you subscribe to the theory that babies are born potty trained and we "make" them use diapers, then you're not starting're late. My mom swears that she put the potty seat for one of our foster children when I was 11 months and I used it right away and never wore diapers during the day again and quit wearing diapers at night by 13 months. I say go with the flow! :)

DS would wake up dry around 10-11 months. That lasted until he was about 2 1/2 actually... the first diaper of the day for him though, he normally flooded! LOL!

DD has been dry for longer stretches lately as well.... she didn't pee at all before bed last night (between about 5pm and 8pm) but when she got up this morning her diaper was *saturdated*. She's had mornings like DS had, where she's dry or mostly dry, and the next diaper gets the flood ;)

I don't know that it's necessarily a sign of readiness to PL, but it is a sign that their bodies are becoming capable of holding larger amounts of pee.. which is sort of a "first step" in the process :)

You can, and it's called EC (elimination communication)! You can go to if you want more info. My dd started pooping on the potty at 8 months and is still going strong. If I catch her right as soon as she wakes she pees in the potty too. She doesn't stay dry all night yet; but I will beging ECing at night soon too. If you have any questions just pm me. There are plenty of moms here that EC. And don't be too upset, this means that you can just start making really cute trainers!!!!!:giggle:
