Potty trained

I am pleased to report that Addison is more or less completely potty trained (with the exception of bedtime when she still wears pull-ups). She pretty much refuses to wear anything but her "big girl panties" (regular underwear) during the day. As a matter of fact, yesterday she was putting up a fight about wearing the pull-ups for her nap but I was able to convince her to wear them by putting her panties over them. Leaving the house with regular underwear makes me a little nervous, but I've learned that she is able to hold her urine for many, many hours at a time. Knock on wood, but we haven't had an accident (yet). I say yet because I feel like accidents are inevitable at this age. Regardless, I am so proud of my girl for this huge accomplishment!

Good for you!! Alyssa still wears pull ups to bed as well but I still consider that potty trained. If she wakes up dry we recycle them the next night.

Hey FYI I keep a potty chair in the car. I am not sure what kind of car you have but it truly has came in handy during the potty training stage. Walmart particularly sells a cheap brand that doubles as a stool which is great because it has a lid over it. This was a trick my hubby's aunt taught me and I have used it with all of the kids! Besides...public restrooms are NASTY!

We keep a potty in the car, too! It's come in handy many times, mostly when we're on road trips or playing at the park. Ours is from IKEA. We have 7 IKEA potties in our house/car. They sell them for $3.99!

Thanks for passing along this great tip!
