It seems like I just did this. But Baby Daughter has started staying dry most nights and for us that is the first sign that it's time to start getting serious about teaching her to use the potty. Since we are using cloth diapers, I'm thinking potty training will be a little different this time. With our now 3 yr old, we spent about a year using pull-ups before we switched to regular undies. This time, we are skipping pull-ups. At the moment she is mostly wearing fitted diapers that snap....some of them are cotton & others are bamboo, she immediately knows if she is wet or stinky & asks to change. If we don't change her fast enough, she will take off her own diaper. My favorite cloth diaper store has a blog and every week they give something away. This week they are focusing on potty training!!! The trainers they are giving away look pretty cool, they are a bit pricey, but considering that they will be washed & worn over & over again they are actually much more economical than a years worth of pull-ups. I'm hoping that Baby Daughter won't take a year to get the hang of the potty, but if she needs that long, we are willing to work with her til she gets it down.
