Toddler Tricks – 2

Ways to trick your baby:

Problem:  We’re in the middle of potty training, and oftentimes when we need to go out, it just doesn’t make sense to go without a diaper.  But after spending all day barebottomed, I know at least my toddlers will throw a right fit about putting a diaper on, to the point where I’ve been pinning down a 27-pounder with the adrenaline strength of baby Hercules with one hand, while trying to strap a diaper on her with the other.

Solution:  When we have to go somewhere now, I tell them a few minutes before that we have to pick out our diapers.  Then I bring them two diapers to choose from – a pink pullup or a white traditional.  The pullups are new in our house, and they’ll always pick that one, but the point is, they pick it out and then they let you put it on.  Choices are a huge deal to them.

Ways your baby tricks you:

Problem: Sometimes your new shoes really need to go potty.

Solution:  Don’t ever leave the room during potty training time.  Alternately, wear only flip-flops for the next three years.
