Potty ideas?


so Jackie is still rocking it on the potty! she has been going all the time at home with no accidents for a few days now...only issue is she wont use the potty unless she is on a little potty.....so my question is do we just keep one in the car and bring it with us....how do you get them to use a reagualr potty.....lol and yes in my vocabulary the word restroom, bathroom, and toliet have all been replaced with potty......

Jackie is getting SO big and starting to get pretty opinionated too! She defiantly knows what she wants and gets upset sometimes if she does not get it, and has a hard time understanding why she can not do certain things at certain time...like why she can not go swimming at 11pm why the baby can not come out of my belly, why she can not fall back into mommy's tummy anymore, why she can not wear a sweatshirt in June in Utah......
But we are really really lucky with her, she is pretty good for the most part and does not have too many outbursts! She just always wants to be doing something and be on the move...she has SO much energy and a love for learning that she hates to hold still for too long! She wants to be running and playing and discovering all the time she keeps us on our toes and we love it!

Hey...yay go Jackie! So I am pretty sure I will be there at least, Bret won't know until closer to the wedding because of his job. But I will let you know for sure when I find out! Are you naming her Abby?? That is so cute!

We do have a fold-up potty in our car/bike trailer for gotta go outings. The liner soaks up the pee and it ties into a little baggie... but like I said, emergencies only.

Maybe have a lovely discussion that until she can go on big potties she wears the training pants out.

With Ryker we got one of those fold up potty seats that sits on a big potty but is small enough to fit in the diaper bag. That works with "normal" potties, but he does not like the sound of the loud potties so he still doesn't want to go in them. Good luck! Its a tough one!

At least she is going potty....I think McKenna is ready, I am not really sure how to go about training her. Did you read any books or do anything besides get her a potty and have her go when you were going?
Oh, by the way I would love to have Jackie over for a few hours in the day, and then we could switch. That would be great! She can come over anytime, just let me know.
