Earlier this summer Anders and Cade both became interested in using the potty. All of our kids have shown a fairly early interest in the potty and all have been trained by the age of two. I don’t know how it has worked with five kids (even though the little ones aren’t fully trained yet) but if I figure out the secret and can bottle it for those of you sick of buying diapers I will be sure to do it. It may have something to do with using cloth diapers, or it could be because I was an early trainer, or it could be a total fluke.
It’s possible if we waiting until they were older we could bunker down and do one of the 3-day methods that you see floating around the internet but I don’t feel like hiding in my house for 3 days straight with naked kids. We let the kids take the lead and decide on their own readiness and this seems to work well for them. Training the older kids was pretty straight forward because there was one of them to train – they asked, we took them, all done. Training twins is double the work but quadruple the mess. Or at leastthat’s what I’ve come up with if I’ve done my math correctly, ha!
So what have I learned about training twins so far?
