My DD is 23 months and LOVES being naked ... and has for a while. about 5'ish months ago, we got her a potty just to have around, get familiar with and play with. she used to sit on it in the bathroom when i'd potty. cute she never did anything more than sit on it and play and we never pushed anything at all with it. now she doesnt like it at all. she'll open it, maybe put a toy on it, maybe take the soft seat out ... but she has NO desire to sit on it. which is fine, but she is doing some other potty type behaviors that are interesting to me and i wanted to see what people thought ... she is our first, so I dont know!
we let her be naked whenever she wants at home and over time, she has learned that she HATES to pee and have it go down her legs. SO, now when she has to pee, she'll usually tell us - pretty cool and i'll say "would you like to sit on your potty" -- 'NAH NAH!" ... "would you like a diap on?" -- "Okay". we use a lot of cloth and she'll literally pee in 2 minutes, then say she needs the diap off. which i do and she's ready to roll. she usually naps naked and no accidents. She seems to 'hold' for a long time .. i dont know what is normal for a length of time? but i was surprised that it can be hours.
we also have dogs ... and sometimes when DD has to pee ... she says "need outside" ... and she pees there. so, apparently, i have housebroken her lol
i was thinking about buying her underwear for fun as she really doesnt like to pee sans diap. and she really doesn't care to wear a diap unless she has to pee (or poo).
i assume this is all normal and that she will eventually want to sit on her potty on her own. i'm in no hurry, just wanted some thoughts as i hope putting the diap on or putting her outside are not entirely counter-productive.
