Alyssa - Thank you! If I'm honest, I actually feel a little smug.
All the negative people are like, "Really? She's telling you when she pees in her diaper?" Mwahahaha!
In fact, I had to stop typing this halfway through to go change her because..."Mommy. Pee pee. Pee pee." LOL
L - I'm so proud of her. She's got too much smarts sometimes (baby proofing did not work after she watched us open things a few times...
), but I really didn't think we'd have that kind of understanding so quickly!
Amanda - I'm not sure why she was getting so upset about the accidents. I never made them "bad" things, but I think it was more just that she just isn't quite there to know what she should do when she has to go. And that's okay! I was totally prepared to take a break!
I actually was talking to a friend about it and she pointed out that people potty train newborns (elimination communication), so that it certainly was not THAT early to be potty training. So I totally agree with you that it's never too early!
Your advice is totally valuable! Every kid is different, so every bit of experience helps!
Thanks girls for you help and advice! I appreciate it!
