So, Greg & I used the technique from the book "Potty Train in a Day". We (actually Greg!) used this same technique with Emma and she picked up potty training in about 8 hours. So, we figured that it would take about the same amount of time with Sophie...and we were fine with that. Well, wouldn't you know it...Sophie had the process down in one hour flat. Yep, ONE HOUR! That is just Sophie, if she wants to learn something she soaks it up like a sponge. Especially if undivided attention, praise and snacks were involved. It seriously helped that Sophie is a big attention hog and was basking in all of the praise. :D
Now, this is not to say that she is 100% trained...BUT, she had just one accident yesterday and one today...which is not bad at all. I don't for see too many problems ahead. I am hoping that she will be trained during the night as well soon, but we'll just wait and see.
Here are a few random (not too graphic) pictures....Enjoy.....
The Motivating (junk) Snacks:
She chose "Dora" undies to wear for the big day:
And, proudly modeled them for the camera!
Here she is potty training her dolly first! :)
Dolly (who is creepy looking!) gets a snack for going on the potty: Now it's Sophie's turn too, she wants a snack like her Dolly!
