When to start potty training girls
I have three kids in college and one in high school. None of them are still in diapers, so I must have successfully potty trained them, right?But it’s like blackout drinking. I have a vague recollection of Pull-ups and some of the assorted potty seats that have resided within our home, but that is all. Any notion of how to successfully potty train a toddler has left my consciousness.My youngest is nearly 3, and it’s past time to get this done. She’s been textbook “ready” for quite a while now, but as an inherently lazy person, I’ve been procrastinating for months. I mean, does any parent ever feel like undertaking this task?But as I see my child’s preschool colleagues master this skill one-by-one — using the bathroom like underpants-wearing rock stars while I bring diapers with my head hung in shame — I realize my time for procrastination is over.I Googled “How to potty train your child in one day.” Because there has to … [Read more...] about I successfully potty trained four kids, but I can’t get my fifth to do it
CHANGING a nappy is rarely a pleasant experience, but how would you feel if someone performed the deed on the floor in your living room? That's the situation that one woman faced at the weekend, when one of her oldest pals whipped off a dirty diaper while her soiled baby lay sprawled on the lounge carpet. It probably wouldn't have caused such uproar had it been a number one - but unfortunately there was "fresh faecal matter" involved. Taking to parenting website Netmums, the annoyed woman began with a "disclaimer". "I don't have children, I don't particularly like other people's children, or the fact they impact my life more than I feel they should given I didn't choose to have them, but I keep these views relatively private and am obviously happy enough to accommodate friends kids around, and have a fairly liberal view of the world in terms of rearing them (or at least other people rearing them - I don't pretend to have much right to argue how this should be done given the above, … [Read more...] about Woman horrified when her mate comes round and changes a ‘solids’ nappy on the living room floor… but who’s in the right?
Two-year-old Sophia was told she could pick out a “special prize” — anything she wants — after she successfully completed potty training. She was thrilled, and of course, headed straight for the doll aisle when she walked into Target with her mom, Brandi Benner, on Friday afternoon. Scanning the aisles, Sophia passed a row of baby dolls and headed for the “big girl dolls.” One doll in particular caught her eye: a little black girl dressed in a white lab coat, wearing a stethoscope around her neck. “When she picked [the doll] up and saw that she was a doctor it was game over,” Benner told CBS News. “She got so excited.” “Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! I want this one. I want this one,” she shouted. Smiling, Benner picked up the doll, “Oh, absolutely.” She still had some money left over, so she picked out a Jeep for her new doll to ride around in. Together, Sophia and her mother walked to the cash register to check … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Girl, 2, defends choice of doll to cashier: “She’s a doctor like I’m a doctor”
Finn was an easy baby, said his mom, Meg Murphy. He'd play on a blanket with one little toy for hours. "We just thought he was really laid back," Murphy, a mother of three from Downingtown, Pennsylvania, told CBS News. Her antennae started going up when she and her husband Billy noticed changes with Finn's language. He had started using normal baby words such as "mama," "dada" and "babba," but then he stopped. "They faded out over time. He would start flapping his hands when he was excited. He wouldn't look when you called his name," she said. They thought he might have hearing problems because he'd had ear infections. After trouble-shooting with an ear, nose, and throat specialist, tests came back normal on Finn's hearing. He was also checked for seizure issues and cleared. Meg's mom, who had worked in schools over the years, suggested that there may be developmental issues, but Murphy said she brushed the concerns aside, and was actually a little irritated at the suggestion. "I … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo The journey to autism diagnosis: Earlier is better, families say
