If you know my big push to get kids out of diapers fairly quickly this shouldn't come as a surprise to you. No, I am not one of those natural baby, cloth diaper, potty trained before walking at any cost kind of moms. I am of the opinion that a little practice and lots of success before we ever decide to venture out of diapers goes a long way.
I started with Tiger at about 7 months. He could sit very well, and the first time I put him on the toilet he went. Lots of sitting w/o success in the beginning turned into potty trained before his second birthday. He is still lazy about saying that he needs to go at home, but always stays dry in public. We have changed to a time-limit between potty breaks this week, and he is having great success.
