         Potty
Our Fremont Training Success Story
by Anne,

God has blessed us with a potty trained 23 month old. He did not become
a member of our family until he was 20 months old. We are in the
process of finalizing his adoption, along with his four biological brothers
and sister. We also previously adopted a sibling group of three.

Readiness – In our case our baby did not show any of the “signs of
readiness”, but we, his parents, were quite ready. We feed our kids lots
of fruits and vegetables, and they make an equal amount of poo. We
were motivated!

Awareness – We switched to cloth diapers to stimulate his awareness
of what it feels like when you eliminate on yourself.

Pulling the day diapers – The first thing we did was to tell him there
