- Though it could be said that she was practicing for that moment she’ll run around the bonfire naked in college, I think her streaking is really due to how uncomfortable she is in a wet diaper.
- When wet/soiled she needs to be changed stat.
- She grabs at her crotch area just moments before she pees and squeezes her legs together
- She is grasping the concept of holding it. For example, I took her to WalMart, she took a nap, then had a playdate and it had been about 3 hours since her last pee.
Pull-Ups has an article titled Signs of Readiness. Here are a few tips from the experts:
No matter what your mother told you, there’s no one right age to start potty training. Most children show signs of readiness sometime between the ages of 18-24 months. Some children are ready at 18 months. Some hold-outs aren’t ready at three! Once you do get started, potty training takes about eight months, on average.
The Signs of Readiness
Whether the start of potty training comes earlier or later for your child, you’ll get your cues on “when it’s time” from your child. That emerging independence starts shining through. “No” isn’t the answer to every question. They’re eager to please. Now is the time to start actively watching for these signs of readiness for potty training:
|Your child can stay dry for two hours at a time during the day or is dry after a nap.|
|Your child is uncomfortable with soiled diapers and wants them changed. (pronto!)|
|Your child shows increasing interest in the bathroom.|
|Your child’s b.m.’s are regular and predictable.|
|Your child wants to wear Big Kid® pants.|
|Your child can indicate by words, facial expression or body language that he or she
is about to go.
|Your child can follow simple verbal directions.|
If your child shows two or more of these signs, it’s a good indication that they’re ready to start potty training.

Pull-Ups® training pants did provide me with a Flip cam and product coupons to try out the new iGo Potty iPhone app and document my experience, as well as conduct a reader giveaway with a $50 visa gift card and product coupons. However posts containing video will not show any BlogHer ads, per their network requirements and the same is true for any posts for which I used the free coupon to purchase Pull-Ups. The product giveaway will be held on my review/giveaway site, which does not run BlogHer ads. However, my opinions on the product are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive sentiments towards Pull-Ups® or their products.
