#1, #2 and #7, three you haven't done, are what made the BIG difference for our little girl (2 years old). #8 really depends on your definition of criticising/punishing, but certainly whatever you do, don't be angry about it. We don't discipline for toiletting accidents. Toiletting is now entirely her responsibility. We assist her for aspects she cannot ...

I did/am doing EC with both my daughters. One is 2 and mostly potty trained, the other is 6 months old now with some #1s and nearly all #2s in the toilet. The 'squat position' you're reading about is some variation of the child sitting on your hands, with a clear area in between for the pees and poos to fall down. Yes, the position does change as they ...

Disclaimer: I've been reading about EC in preparation for my son's birth, but I haven't tried it myself. Since nobody else has answered the question, I'll try to summarize what I've read for you. Hopefully others with more practical experience will chime in later. The basic idea of EC is that babies are aware of what's going on in their body and can ...

I'm not a parent but I know people that got their kids to stop using binkys. Let them use them, but each week cut a little snip off the tip. After two or so months there won't be any left.

Twenty months is quite young to expect a child to be potty trained. It will happen when he's physiologically and developmentally ready, and there's not a lot you can do to move it forward, and good reasons not to try: frustration and icky messes on your part, tears and shame on his part, and a lot of conflict between you two to no purpose. If it isn't ...

I think you should wait a bit. Ideally, your child should come to see you right after soiling his diaper to get it changed. We tried very hard to potty-train my second daughter, but it only worked when she would come see us to get a diaper when she was naked and needed to pee. Before that moment, she wasn't ready. That was at about 30 months old, by the ...

All the sudden attention the new baby is getting is likely to perturb your 3-year-old, due either to jealousy of the new interloper, or fear of your loss of interest and attention, or a bit of both. It's quite normal for older siblings to regress somewhat when there are stressful changes in their immediate environment, partly because it feels easy and ...
