A Little Victory

We got a BBLP for X-Mas (actually got it today b/c we celebrated w/ family today). I went to put my daughter in her nighttime diaper and my daughter's "used" diaper wasn't really wet. I was thinking, 'Oh great, now she's going to pee soon in this new diaper that she has to be in all night.' Then I remembered the potty. I brought her bare-bummed across the room (while she was still holding her book that she was playing w/ on the changing table) over to her potty. I then carried her (still sitting on the potty) over to the bathroom. I turned on the sink for a few seconds, but that didn't have time to do anything b/c I turned it off b/c I felt like we were wasting too much water. Then after us reading her book together for about a minute...SHE PEED!! I was so proud of my baby that I thought I was going to cry. I called my dad to tell him b/c he bought the potty for us and he said it was beginner's luck. I told him that I'll take it. I was so excited and even though she didn't even seem to notice what was happening, I am still proud of her and I was psyched that she had one less pee in her diaper tonight. Thanks for everyone that suggested the BBLP. It's the perfect size for her.

Re: A Little Victory

Hooray!!!!!
Have you been working on a cue sound with her? I found that ds learned our cue sound really fast, little babies are so amazing. We use "sss" and when I make letter sounds, he looks at me all puzzled for the letter s. Its so funny.

Re: A Little Victory

It was the first time she's used a potty and I've never held her over a toilet or sink before, but the one time I tried to get her to pee while she was on the changing table (in an attempt to again have her in a dry diaper a little longer), I made the cue sound, but she never peed. I will definitely try the "sss" sound next time. As she doesn't know what it means yet, should I make the sound when she pees so she associates the sound with her action or before she pees, or both? Sorry if this is a newbie question.

Re: A Little Victory

Make the cue sound whenever you catch he peeing and when you want her to pee. Does she wear diapers that you can tell immediately when she pees, like a fitted without a cover or something? And have naked time with her and when/if she pees, make the sound, even if she is peeing on the blanket or whatever you put her on.

Yeah, if she doesn't know the cue yet, make it when she's actually peeing until she makes the connection.

But yay for the first catch! It's totally addictive

She usually wears one-size pocket fitteds w/ a cover, so even if we skip the cover, I can't tell when she pees.

I'll definitely make the cue sound when I catch her peeing, like if she goes on the potty again. We use to do naked time while she sat on a pee pee pad, but now that she keeps trying to stand I don't know how we could do that w/o making a big mess.
