It's Potty Time!!!

We think Mikka's close to being ready to be introduced to potty training so we got her this cute teeny potty :)

 We were told if we really want to train her on how to use the potty, it would only take 7 days (there's also a 3-day version) but it requires for one parent to be at home with the kiddo the entire "training camp". You'd just have to put regular undies on your kid during those 7 days or leave their bottom bare. Since kids hate the feeling of wet bottoms and that there's no diapers to catch their pee/poop, it would leave them no other choice but to "go" potty. I think it's a pretty clever idea! This "technique" works most of the time and I've spoken to a number of moms who swore by this.

However, at this stage, we'd just slowly introduce Mikka to potty training. We're not going to do any drastic steps until we know she's totally ready for it. Introducing the concept might help but I feel that if she constantly sees and understands what potty is, it would be good enough prep for her to do the real thing.

Wish us luck! At least she's not afraid of this and she looks like she can sit comfortably on it ;) Maybe she thinks it's just but a toy... oh well, we'll find out :)
