Potty Training

After nearly 6 years of changing diapers on a daily basis, it appears as if the end is in sight! Lucie is finally on her way to being potty trained.

It began a couple of weeks ago when I decided that it was indeed time that she begin at least sitting on the potty. If the girl can insist on color-coordinating her Bum Genius cloth diapers with her dresses, the girl is old enough to try sitting on the potty.

She protested at first, but eventually the lure of a jelly bean from our cute etched glass jar was enough to get her to try it. I still haven't been brave enough to switch her to underwear, but she is doing a great job.

Fairly soon, we will say goodbye to the cloth diapers. I admit that the BumGenius cloth diapers have served us well over the past two years. They have indeed fit her from 1 year until nearly 3 years. For anyone who is interested in cloth diapering, I highly recommend BumGenius. They have a wonderful product with a 1-year warranty and fantastic customer service. If we ever have any more kids, I think that I will cloth diaper again. I have saved so much money using cloth compared to disposables...especially considering that my kids have both taken until about 3 years to potty train!
