No More Diapers for Madelyn!

Yes you read right, Madelyn is wearing underwear and using the potty regularly and hasn't had an accident since Tuesday morning. We didn't really plan on doing it this early but after a few "poopy" incidences and spending $50 on diapers every couple of weeks for the two girls, I decided it was time. It all started on Sunday night when she pooped on the potty for the first time so Monday morning we put her in underwear and decided to stay home for the next few days minus Kindermusik, which is Madelyn's favorite thing. We had a few accidents on Monday, and one on Tuesday morning when I was about to throw the towel in. Then she came to me on Tuesday afternoon and said, "Mommy I have to go poop on the potty." So we proceeded to run to the potty and since then she hasn't had one accident, including 2 trips to Walmart, and a day at grandma's house. She is doing awesome! I didn't realize it would be so slick. We're so proud of her, she's growing up fast...getting rid of pacifiers and diapers all in one week. Way to go Madelyn!

Good Job Maddie!! That is so exciting! I wish I could potty train my girls so I won't have 3 in diapers but I don't think that will happen anytime soon! Way to go!

Good job Maddie! It's so great only worrying about one baby to change. I have LOVED Colton being potty trained! I'm glad it wasn't to difficult for you.:)

Hooray! I'm debating about whether I should try for potty training.(Well, not ME--luckily I've mastered that. ha ha. I mean for Alexa.) I'm curious to hear how you like dealing with the potty over annoying and expensive diapers!
