Potty Training My Little Girl Azumi

by - 1:31 AM

My oldies here have been telling me to start potty training Azumi since she turned 18 months(she's now 19)... I do but not that serious. I'm not actually ready yet lol.

Most Japanese start potty training their babies as early as 6 months and most of them are diaper free at the age of 2 --wow.

I don't want to pressure myself and my toddler. She seems at least close to ready though that I let her on her own. Potty training varies on your own personal methods and your own beliefs anyway.

My personal way is letting her know first the difference between poopoo and weewee. WHen she pooped, I tell her in an exaggerated way ---saying "PooPoo...!!! smells bad" along with an equally exaggerated facial expression, then I tell her to sit on her potty (for not more than 1 min) and wash... I figure if she knows what poopoo is and why I let her sit on the potty, then she would eventually figure out where she should poop.

Soon enough, she tells us when she pooped and peed on her diaper. I just couldn't try to start taking her diaper off yet..

Sometimes, she follows me in our Comfort Room and I let her watch and learn lol

ANd guess what, I think I succeeded because just a few weeks ago, she started to get inside her little house whenever nature calls. I guess she thinks of it as her own Comfort Room. It was funny at first coz all of a sudden, the room was so quiet. I thought it was coincidence at the same time but she did again the following days. Just don't try to peek her coz she would stop lol.

If there is so called Comfort Room, my lil kawaii prinsesa has a Comfort Zone =)

Today (June 1, tuesday), my little girl made me proud again because she pooped on her potty by herself while I was cooking for dinner. That was a big milestone for me that's why I'm so excited to start writing down about my lil girl's Potty Training.


We're getting there... Patience and persistance is the key... But honestly, I'm not that persistent although I'll be (and should be because of persistent advices from my oldies) now that my baby has seriously showed me her interest on Potty Train. Slowly but surely =)

  3. Awww..so proud of your lil prinsesa!Way to go,Azumi chan!!Ganbatte neeh!Taihen darokedo,Bambie mo ganbatte kudasai!^_^

  4. WOw, congratulations for the success training of your little daughter. I bought a potty training for Faith, but did not used it, instead I put the lid of the potty training in our bowl whenever she pooped. It was hard at first, my training was a bit hard I guess because I let her sit there for 15 mins. She would squirm but now when she feel to poop she would grabbed my hand and said poop and would run to our bathroom, then there it is. I still have to be there when she poop because she can't sit to the bowl herself yet, its a bit too high for her. Anyway, congratulation again Mommy! You did a wonderful job.

  5. Wow! How kawaii (cute) you're daughter is. I don't have a baby yet since I'm still single, but I am a new aunt to my 8 month old niece. I love her very much, but when she poops I just can't stand the smell. lol. :D My sister in-law then would tell me that I should learn how to change diapers this early, so that when I have kids of my own, I'll be used to it already. But I guess I'm not yet ready as well. hehehe... :D

  6. Ang galing naman ni Anzy. Sana si Askim ganyan den kaso katamaran ko. My bad.

  7. @Genejosh

    Thanks sis.. ako din, hindi ko pinipilit si Anzy.. baka ma-pressure diba.. ako nga nappressure na sa mga oldies ko dito eh kaya tinatamad ako magpa-potty train lol

  8. @anne

    Congrats sis, finally ok na si Baby Faith.. No pain no gain ika nga.. Gayahin ko din ang technique mo minsan.. Thanks =)

  9. @carensmoja

    Hi girl =) You must be a pretty and proud Aunt =) Well kadiri talaga, kahit naman ako dati, I couldn't stand kahit ihi lang.. pero once na baby mo na, ok lang hehe.. Don't force yourself, matututo ka din pag meron kana baby =)

  10. @Mrs. Kolca

    Thanks Sis.. ok lang yan, ako din tinatamad din talaga.. pero every diaper changing, I make it fun lalo na pag nasa mood ako hehe

  11. she's good! eventually she'll get used to it :) challenging talaga mag potty train!

  12. congrats to your achievement...
    my toddler learned to use the potty at 23 months... ung sa'yo 19months lang! way to go, mommy!

    advantage is, you don't have to buy diapers na. ;p

  13. Yes, that's another milestone for your baby. Japanese are really very disciplined. Here in the Philippines, we let the baby relieved herself in the disposable diaper until we feel that she is ready to personally poop in her own potty pan. Ang cute naman si Anzu doing her own thing, lol. Madali siyang matuto dahil matalino kasi. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  14. Wohoooo, a great milestone for Anzy, way to go Mommy Bams and Anzy!

  15. Hi Anzy! mom will also potty train me soon. hihi!

    tita Bambie, Anzy is soo cute. Can we play?

  16. Wow! Good for you! I haven't potty trained Jamjam yet. She's turning 21 months next week. I don't think she's ready pa eh. But you just inspired me to potty train my baby. :)

LOL... si mommy pa ihehelp dba? si Alyssa din, I didn't force her. We started potty training before she turns 2 na then she was fully diaper free at 25months...
