Karina will be three in August.
I know what you mean about the book thing. When we were younger my mom always gave my brothers and me something to read while we went potty. We still live with that habit. It’s like poo-poo come out easier when having something to read. I banned Karina from having books in the toilet. One day the book I gave her ended up being drenched wet. We have a bucket of water right next to the toilet so I am not sure if she dunked it in there. But the good thing about her is unlike her moomy who spends too much time in the toilet (because of the book/mag), she gets her business over with quite fast.

Ai! Yo! I having trouble getting Junior to sit on the toilet bowl on his own. Till today, (he is three) still wants me to carry him whenever he wants to poo-poo! I’ve tried Sheela methods of getting him to read books and do colouring but to no avail. He will scream, and scream that his poo-poo is coming out , Mummy carry me QUICK! and the worst thing is: he only wants me to carry him! No one else will do. So, when I’m not around, he will keep his poo-poo!
What am I to do? Sigh!

Hi moomies,
My 28 mo Beatrisya is finally ready to do potty training, I’ve been putting off for so long. She woke up at 4 am on Tuesday screaming that she needed to poo. We were so surprised, hubby took her diaper off, let her do her business but later said she changed her mind. Put her back in the diaper and at 6 am, we checked on her and like what we expected, she did it in the diaper. Last two days, babysitter said she screamed that she needed to poo and same thing happen, changed her mind but later did it in the diaper. Hubby’s colleague said they trained their kid by using some CDs. Now, where can I get such CDs, any moomies have used them before? Or books, any recommendations? Thinking to look for it this weekend and will get serious potty training. And Jennifer, since I’m new in this department, do not have any advice for you but surely love to hear from other experienced moomies.
