OK, this is going to seem really weird to most of you :) haha! Here in South Asia most babies are potty trainied by the time they are one... yes, I did say one :) This is what they do: When the child can sit up (with support) then they will start the training. They figure out when the baby goes to the bathroom (ie - right after a nap, after eating, etc)... and put them on the toilet at that time and say something (like "shushu" - the Hindi word for pee... nice hunh? or make a shhhhhh sound). You keep them on the toilet until they pee (up to 15 minutes or so)... Anyway, supposedly by doing this, the baby is potty trained by one!
So we're attempting it... The first time we put her on the toilet, it took about 10 minutes, but now she goes almost immediately after we put her on. She always smiles really big after she goes too - I think she's really proud of herself :) It will be interesting to see if it works. We took this pic (below) just for fun - haha!
