Adventures in Potty Training

I think we have bought our last pack of diapers for Noah! He has been using the potty since Wednesday and is doing great. We stayed at home for 3 days and did nothing but potty and he seems to understand the concept. We finally ventured out of the house yesterday and Noah used the restroom at three different places without any problem. I think this purchase may have helped with our initial success:

Jude, on the other hand, is not happy about our newest activity. Every time Noah says he needs to go potty and we run out of the room, Jude starts screaming and crawls all around the house hunting for us. He is experiencing serious separation anxiety and potty training Noah seems to be making it worse!

What beautiful boys you have! Your comments about Jude made me respond to your post. I recently conducted the national field testing for the new Baby Signs Potty Training Program. One of our moms used the program with her 26 month old. One day at dinner, her 9-month old used the sign for potty. She laughed and just thought he was imitating her, but over the next few days it became apparent that he was using the sign when he was peeing. So she involved him in the potty training process and he was out of diapers during the day by 11 months. You can read her story at

You can show Jude a sneak-peek of the potty training video made especially for kids his age on the home page of this website.

Good luck with your potty training adventures!
