I never realized how easy I had it potty training my oldest until it came time to potty train baby sister. Oh my goodness! With my first, she went cold turkey from diapers to panties over the two-week Christmas break from preschool. With Sissy, we’ve been at this since May — five months.
She has been in panties full time (during the day) since July, but she still has accidents almost daily. In fact, she went from very few accidents in August (none at school) to multiple accidents a day — every day in September. We went backward!
We recently invented the “Dry Panty Club” to encourage dry panties. Members get high praise for having dry panties – and are often rewarded with jellybeans. It seems to be helping, I think.
With all of our ups and downs in training, her little bum has needed some extra care and freshness. I quickly discovered that using “baby wipes” to freshen up after accidents didn’t help because she associated them with being a baby and wearing diapers. So I switched to Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths – perfect for cleanups, flushable and made for “big girls” they became a big part of our potty training routine.
We still have a way to go with potty training this young one. But we are getting there — she didn’t have a single accident on our four-day cruise last week! And in the mean time I know that her little bum is fresh and clean with Cottonelle.
