Ugh. I hate those kinds of parents...

My older 2 didn't walk until they were 15 months. My oldest wasn't potty trained until he was 4. (Talk about a nightmare...he was AFRAID of the potty.) My little girl, who turned 3 in February, is just now getting ready to start potty training. Is it that I'm not trying hard enough? No. It's that I actually follow my children's cues and let them develop at their own pace instead of forcing them to feed into some perfect parent delusions that I have. I'm not saying it isn't possible, but potty training at 14 months sounds far fetched. My husbands aunt claims her son potty trained at 16 months, but if you get the FULL story, she started trying to potty train him at 16 months and he was "fully" potty trained by 32 months.

yeah unfortunately she is one who thinks her child is perfect and can do no wrong but yet I have heard her saying how her kid throws a these big fits and starts punching her I finally got fed up and told her you parent your kid the way you want and I will do the same... And Good luck with your first trip to Disney I hope you all have an AWESOME time

My little guy is in the same boat. We are headed to Disney mid-November. For the most part, he's dry during the day. However, I'll be sticking with pull ups while at Disney. It's one thing at home when he says "gotta go!" he can run 20 feet to the bathroom. It's no where near that easy at the parks- what if you are in line? Finding the closest bathroom...dodging traffic through the parks...and so on. I think it will be easier to do that and just deal with any set backs once we get home. I really don't want to lug a bunch or extra clothes or soggy-pee/pooped clothes.

Just a friendly reminder that public restrooms are LOUD!!! My DD4 still hates how loud they flush, and gets a bit nervous going in. If you can be prepared for that I think that is part of the battle, maybe turn it into something funny (wish I had thought of this during potty training) like"oooh did that sound like a Plane??? or a MOOSE?" something to make her laugh at it instead of being frightened???

Also, each child is different, but I found it much better with my 2nd and third, not to ask continuosly, do you have to go? but to just take them at appropriate intervals every hr-hr1/2 or before a long wait, after a long drink, before a boat ride from resort to DTD etc. As much as you want them to realize the gotta go feeling, they don't always until it is extremely urgent, so it is better to just have them frequently emptying thier bladders to prevent accidents (and large ones at that)

by-the-way DD4 still uses a pull up at night, even though she goes right before bed, she just conks out so hard that she can't seem to wake up to go in the middle of the night, and after a few nights of accidents, middle of the night jammie changes, and her climbing into our bed (and once wetting our bed) I went to night time pull ups... Does that make me a bad Mommy???

We just went to Disney and survived this. Got back today with zero wet undies including both plane flights! My 2.8 month son was in undies during the day for about 30 days prior to the trip. I was terrified, but he did great. For the first two days we used the companion bathrooms because he was terrified of the large bathrooms. We brought 'magic post-its' to keep to auto toilets from flushing. The first few days we brought him every hour to two hours because he never asks us to go, but would go if we bribed him. By the end of the trip he actually wanted to use the large bathrooms, and actually started asking us to go. I think the trip actually helped with enforcing potty training. Just wanted to let you know its possible. I have a trip report over in the dvc trip report section if you want to read it:

Just a FYI regarding nakey butt training (the best method, IMHO - I've done others, as well). Forget the panties, just put her in pants, and then when she's 100% in pants, get her really loose panties. It's hard for them to distinguish underwear from diapers in the beginning.

For the parks, pullups over underwear.

There is a cure for that - having more children! I had one who walked at 10 months - and one who walked at 15 months. I had one speaking clearly in full sentences by 15 months - and one who had NO language at 18 months, and needed ST. I had one who potty trained herself just over the age of two - and one who finally got it at 3 1/2 (well, just pee - poop took until 4 1/2).

And they were all different children - ones that did some things first, did other things last. And there was nothing I could do to change the timing.

yeah I decided im just going to let her go in her pull ups she had been doing real good about telling me if she has to go. the only time she has a few slip ups is when im at work but my mother watches her for me and she is disabled so sometimes she just does not make it in time.... but my mom has given up her bathroom for DD because she will only use the big girl potty ( with her potty chair seat) so she just leaves the seat on there and the stool in front of it and she just goes on her own.plus that gives my mom enough time to get there to clean her up and help her wash her hands

Awesome im glad he did so good it gives me hope I have one month and a week!!!!!!!!

and bankgirl no that does not make you a bad mom at all lol. my little cousin would wet the bed almost every night until he was seven but his father would not allow him to wear any night time pull ups so as a result of that he was always afraid he would get yelled at in the morning and he never had any friends stay the night or anything

This is brilliant. I might try this with mine.

I have boys so your mileage may vary, but we've been at this potty training thing since JANUARY and yes I know it is October. we have one twin who is trained except for the occasional accident, which he gets super sad about and is really good at using the potty. However, the other is terrible and goes in his pants because he can. He is 100% with no pants on but as soon as he has pants on he gets lazy and goes in them. We even had a call from "mickey" aka my husband in a passable mickey voice, telling him Mickey REALLY wants him to visit but he has to use the potty. The trained twin was screaming "I help you mickey! but the kid who uses his pants could not have cared less...

I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to be done with diapers, pull-ups, etc by our disney trip, which is looking less and less likely, so we're just doing pull-ups for that week. I figure I would rather deal with accidents in the pullups than in the pants while at the parks. We went on a road trip this summer and they both did so badly with accidents due to the excitement of the hotel, the weird bathroom, the long days that we just went to Target and bought pull-ups even though they had never worn them during the day at any time during this entire process. To me if it "sets them back" a little, I would rather that than have a miserable vacation to disney cleaning up pee pants several times day. (x2) My boys will be 3 in November, BTW.

Yes, they are loud!! But, i think disney put some thought into them because they don't have hand dryers so they are at least not as loud as some bath rooms. If you want to practice in a quieter one, sneak behind the imagination pavilion at epcot, (where the figment ride is) there wasn't a soul there, and my son was able to check them out without all the scary flushing. Also, the toilet in our room was even louder than the park bathrooms, i started flushing it deliberately with the door open so my guy could hear it and would get used to the noise. By the third day he no longer ran away.

Bankgirl05 my son is still in pullups during nap and bedtime. In fact the only time he poops is in the middle of the night. Yuck! Can't wait till he grows out of that. His dad forgot the pullup one nap this vacation and he woke up in a soaked bed ( on our air mattress thank goodness). He thought he was all wet from swimming earlier.

I agree! Good vacation trumps potty training! We carried pullups with us just in case things didn't go well. I would suggest give it a shot, but be ready with plan B.

This made me laugh!

Also, are there two parents? We had two times in line where he had to pee. One parent took him while the other stayed in line. They were both lines where we could sneak back in easy, other parents understand and don't mind.
