I am not able to be home with him all day so I don't know how well this will go. I really think that consistency will be key for our success with early training. So far things are progressing pretty well. I won't go into all the details, but Tyler is acclimating pretty well. I think it is because he enjoys getting to sit on the potty, and has yet to find this to be a detractor from his play time.
Also the potty that Mema got for him sings and quacks. Yes it is pretty fancy; if you call quacking and singing potty fancy. In this case I do because his potty at home does not. I could not afford a singing and praising potty with fancy feet and a face. He thinks his singing potty at Mema's house is wonderful and waves at it in passing. To him it is just another toy to interact with right now.

Stores tame down the selection to 3 or 4 models with various features, thank goodness. I already have a hard time deciding on this sort of thing, but you give me over 10 choices and I think my brain just shuts down.

Ha, whatever, actually, I had not even thought of matching anything. I just went with something gender neutral and it was just $10.00 so it was a good deal. The one I chose is a stepping stool too, which will be useful in the future. This is the only extra feature that is included with the potty I selected. I get no extra points for that with Tyler. Mema is winning right now with having the coolest potty.
