You aren't going to believe this, but just as I published that last post, Joel squirmed a little in my lap, then made a push, and I quickly zipped him over to the trash can next to the desk, and HE WENT POTTY IN THE TRASH CAN! It happened fast, but I remembered to make the "mmmmmm" sound so that he can begin to associate the sound with the poo-poo action. I'm so excited! Maybe we can really do this.

So I've learned one important thing so far about infant potty training: Do not dress the baby in anything that takes more than three seconds to remove. :o)

Infant Potty Training??

Okay, well, I've been hearing a lot about this phenomenon known as infant potty training, or elimination communication, etc. And seeing I have an infant handy, I think I'm going to give it a try. Today I've just been watching Joel, who is three months old, trying to pick up on his "signals" that indicate he's going to "go". It's difficult right now, because he grunts all the time, not just when he wants to "go". But we're giving it a shot, and I will keep you posted.
