The toilet training journey

I'd say Sara is about 75 percent toilet trained now. The journey begins here, and it has been almost three months now. Since last month, we decided to forgo the nappy during day time, so now Sara is totally diaper-less and nappy-less (which in turn results to lots of butt-pinching. Hehe, who can resist pinching a baby's butt? Not me ;p)

I bought her a toilet seat for baby (only RM13.90 in Jusco) last month and since then, she never wants to poo unless we put her on the bath seat. However, since she can't talk yet, what she'll do is usually tugging her pants, points to her butt and do the cute poo-poo face (muka tengah meneran ;p) so we will immediately bring her to the toilet.

However, is she wants to pee, she'll cry for no reason and and we'd have to ask her "Sara wants to shi-shi??" If she doesn't say anything, then it means yes! bring me to the toilet NOW!

We are very lucky that we are able to toilet train Sara this early. Our primary motivation is because she seems allergic to EVERY brand of disposable diapers and also cloth diaper. Besides, she (almost) never pee when she sleeps. She WILL wake up when she wants to pee, crying while still closing her eyes, we (okay fine, my hubby) will bring her to the toilet, she'll pee and immediately goes back to sleep.

Accidents do happen. Sometimes she pees on the carpet, in the store room, on the bed...just everywhere. But, its getting less and less. In fact, in the last two weeks, if my memory serves me right, there has only been less then 10 accidents and all that happen while she was awake, due to our inability to understand her language. She somewhat told us she wants to pee, but we thought she wanted something else. Hee...

And lastly, since my entry feels incomplete without Sara's pic...
