I have used the little potty before. My DH laughed his head off about that one, but we were just starting out with the PLing, my LO was afraid, and I was wanted to show that it was not scary. I didn't make a habit of it, but it helped.

This is oddly, weirdly fun. Kind of like CD's
Okay, so I have peed in the potty twice so far (DD told me, "Mommy, sit!") but she is up and down so fast and so often - i think i need to get some new toys / books just for the potty. Since we havent ECed previously i am backing off a bit and just working on the communication bit, and getting her aquainted to life without a staydry layer. I have been trying to keep her in gerber trainers as much as possible when we are home (i woh so it's evenings and weekends) and tonight she started saying uh-oh when she peed. Probably didnt help that the dogs were trying to lick it up - YUCK! But the recognition is happening and at some point life will slow down a bit (right? Please?) and so we might try a modified, half-attempt at a 3 day weekend in Sept or Oct. My MIL thinks Im totally batcrap insane

I have actually regularly used our little ikea potty to eliminate in, bc it allows for a full squat. My pelvic floor is a wreck from delivering my DD, and sometimes I have to be in a full squat to start/complete elimination. I just keep clorox wipes at hand and clean it out after each use.

Maybe that makes me the queen of the crazies? Meh, oh well. ;-)
