Mission Possible?

You guessed it. I am at the first chapter in this new venture - Potty Training!! Sorry for starting off our discussions with such a "shitty" topic, but, face it.... We're all going to get there some day!

Samvit is turning one and a half soon, and I thought I have had enough of diapers. Sometimes, I think it's so much better in India where they limit the use of diapers to a great extent. So, potty training just happens as an outcome of not using diapers. Out here, its like a life saver for stay-home moms (and not to mention cook, dhobi, cleaner, playmate, wife, etc. - all rolled into one). I personally think its a boon. Had there been no diapers, there would be no Deepti by now. Haha, look until what point we get in this parenting ride.

Anyway, all said and done. I decided I should start. I bought training pants and a soft potty seat (and said a silent prayer as I paid the bill for these things hoping that things will move smoothly). Boy, was I wrong!!! But, I guess its way to early to comment since I have just begun the "process". So, this afternoon I put the potty on our toilet seat and made my little man sit. And, the next instant there were wails and screams as if I had thrown him into the mouth of some sort of a blood...er, butt eating... dragon. So I simply took him off the seat and stashed him back in a fresh diaper and flushed away my hopes.

What do I want? A potty trained Samvit. That's what I want!! I'm looking for tips, tricks (and rewards) if you mommies please. Share your ideas (and success stories!!) and help me get this chapter over and done with.

  1. Hey all... Samvit pooped in his potty for the first time yesterday. Thought I should share it with you all.. Its still a hit or miss case with everything potty... but atleast I think this is indeed the beginning of the end of diapers!!
