My baby is 1.5 years old and I'm dreading potty training so much! FYL, OP! I can just imagine your annoyance!
There really is no reason to dread it.. The worst thing you can do when potty training is get annoyed or upset. There will always be accidents you just have to expect them.. Kids pick up on things and if you are dreading it they will have a negative reaction to it too.
Best thing to do when potty training is to put them on every 20-30 minutes (depending on age, how much they drink/pee). At the beginning of potty training it's just the parent being trained. You just have to keep putting them on trying to catch them before they pee until they finally learn the feeling of how to make themselves pee. Start with every 20 minutes and you should be pretty good. It's basically you being trained to put them on the toilet at the beginning. Oh, and reward them with a gummie or marshmallow every time they pee on the toilet, or we've even done a brand new toy to play with for a few minutes after they pee, then you put it back on the counter where they can see it and they get to play with it when they pee on the toilet again. Great motivator!
