my daughter crawled at 4 months and walked at 8 months and now that she is a year old i dont think she is ready to be potty trained and i am in no hurry. i never have been! i hated that she did everything so fast i feel like she stopped being a baby baby too fast! but oh well thats how she was 🤷♀️ lets hope this one takes her time
@emily526, my MIL likes to tell me what I should and shouldn’t be able to do and how she was able to do it all but always leaves out the fact that she had her mom, mother in law and a housekeeper to help out. Not to mention money was not as issue when my husband was little. I always just want to flip her off. It makes me so mad that she thinks it’s ok to make me feel inadequate for having dishes in my sink or the laundry not always being done.
@josefa Right? I'm in no rush for her to grow up, I know my daughter will walk when she's ready and is definitely not ready for potty training. I'm just enjoying my time with her now while I can. Besides, being further along in my pregnancy I don't want to have to chase her around anyway 😂
@emily526, exactlyyyy !! It’s so annoying , like every kid develops differently ! Like my son , he never crawled he went straight to walking lol started at 10months !
@taegwaltney95 Right? My MIL gets upset my daughter's not walking yet too. I'm like first of all she was a preemie, so she has always been a little behind and second of all she will do things when she's ready relax.
@mswedes My MIL loves to tell me what I should/shouldn't be doing lol I'm not paying any mind to her.
My son is 2 and a half and isn't potty trained yet. I've tried but he just hasn't taken to it yet. He knows what the potty is for and he knows when he has to poop or pee but if I sit him on the potty, it doesn't matter how long he sits there for, he doesn't go. As soon as I put another diaper on him though then he goes right away
With my sister baby my mom was trynna force him too pick his head up and hold his bottle etc at 2m .... like What r u doing ... and said “oh my friend grandson was sitting up by 6 months” like who cares what someone else’s child is doing don’t force another child to do it just to Say he did it early ... I find it so frustrating lol
That’s crazy , I started potty training my son at 2 he was fully potty trained by 2 1/2 , but then my mom tells me “you should teach him how to pee standing up cause so and so grandson does” like ummmmmmm no lol he just got use to peeing in his potty I’m not gonna teach him standing up when he barely gets the concept of using the toilet in the first place 🤦🏽♀️ my son is now about to be 4 and we juuuuust started trying to teach him how to do it standing up but I don’t push him I just let him do what he wants cause in my eyes he will learn eventually ! I’m in no rush to force him to do something like u said ... my mom is just like @twerky, said .... she likes to be able to say her grandson did this or that early/first smh
Any parent that thinks they’ve potty trained a child that can’t walk is the one who is truly potty trained by the child. Some people’s body’s will go like clock work. Just because you’ve figured it out, that doesn’t mean the kid is potty trained and it’s so bad to push them. It can often backfire and take them longer. I feel like mother in laws especially just like to poke at their daughter in laws.
@haslberry My daughter's nowhere close to being ready right now. I don't see the big deal of having 2 in diapers. I'm the one dealing with it anyway and my husband lol she doesn't even visit her granddaughter.
@gorgeousmay42217 Exactly, right now my daughter won't understand at all.
I don't understand what's so terrible about having two in diapers for a bit (That seems to be everyone's argument when you're expecting). Like I plan to give it a shot and see how potty training goes because she's showing signs of being ready, but she was miles away at your daughter's age.
@emily526, right like a year old child does not want to be sitting for hours on a potty. That’s torture
@emily526 I plan on waiting til they can walk and they get to the point where they are taking of their diapers. I think at that point they could start understanding.
