Full access to the potty.
Juliet is actually pretty good as long as she is not doing something too interesting. She is about 2 potty uses per 1 accident.
Woohoo! Are you also going diaperless while out and about? What about sleep time?
We're pretty much diaperless at home except for sleeping. We've just started using the potty outside the house. T acutally asked to use the potty at the JBF sale this morning. Her diaper was dry, she went big pee in the potty, and was dry again when we got home. This might be a diaperless day!
No diapers at home during waking hours. She did wake up from her nap dry. The diaper is on the change table, ready to be used again.
We've started on the potty train, but not full time. We do a potty day whenever he decides that he's not going to keep diapers on - like yesterday. Today though he's completely left his diapers alone and has zero desire to go to the potty. And I'm glad that I bought the cheap IKEA floor potty because the kid insists on only using the big toilet, just like mommy and daddy. Aiden usually doesn't tell us that he needs to pee, we have to watch his actions (so it's more mommy training ). When he does go we're working on peeing DOWN into the toilet and why point it DOWN is best. One step at a time right? We do underwear at home when he decides that he's not going to use diapers.
We had an awesome morning (she initiated two pees and two poops, no accidents) but then this afternoon she peed on the ground outside (not squatting, just not paying attention) and then again when I put her new training pants on her...DH got a kneeful. But then when I took it off she ran to the potty and peed in it. Baby steps!
wow! I haven't even started with PT yet. I'm trying to sleep train right now! One thing at a time! ha ha
We tried PTing DS around 2 years old and it was a total disaster. I'm hoping DD is not the same.

Girls are, on average, both easier and earlier to train than boys. But of course that's just typical, not a rule or anything! I'm sure she'll let you know when she's ready to start. Addy's been waking up dry from naps, etc., and showing lots of interest, which is what you look for.
Ended the night on a great note---one more poop in the big toilet! That's a whole day with no poop in diapers! YAY!!!
Well done potty trained people.
Tobey often takes himself to his brothers potty then does nothing and 5 seconds later pees on the floor. I think it will be a while before we are near doing it properly. Like well over 2
