Omg this was me the other day I thought I was the only one my baby who’s 10months threw one of her biggest tantrums going to the potty and I felt like a shitty parent and started to over think and feel guilty for working 6days out the week 😭

Girly thank you so much and I’ve never had an issue she likes it and we have fun toys and books for the restroom but that day she was not having it and I guess I got stressed and felt like it was my fault and had a mental breakdown🤦🏼‍♀️and don’t worry children are like snowflakes all amazing and beautiful but none the same so when ever your little one is ready don’t feel pressured! Every child does everything completely different my baby refused to crawl up until probably 8months almost 9 and I had friends who there kids were moving already

Ummm you’re a mom who’s training her 10 month old to go to the potty? Lady, you’re the opposite of a bad mom. You’re awesome!! Mine is almost two and I haven’t even started yet.

I have been there, however now he goes down no problem. One thing I found helped was a routine, I also have my 14 month old in a light weight sleep blanket suit and that also helps as a sleep trigger. Another thing I do is after we read, i spend like five minutes cuddling and talking about the day, then I tell him when I’m going to put him down in the crib and put him in there with the over head light on, and I spend a few minutes cleaning the room and then I get the night light jukebox projector thing running, turn out the overhead light, say good night and walk out. Couple of things- we share a room still, but we don’t go in the bedroom till much later, and there is a pacifier involved in all this. Lol. I hope this helps. Message me if you have any questions.

Hey mama! You’re doing a great job with your baby. We all go through this, and it’s ok for you to feel frustration. My son was like that, especially since he was breastfed for a long time. A few weeks ago I created my own sleep training process that works for all of us. Now when we put him to bed, he cries 2 minutes or less, then falls asleep. Most importantly, he doesn’t climb out of his crib anymore. My spouse and I get to spend our evenings together. Just start thinking about creating your own bedtime routine or sleep training process, and I promise you within a few weeks things will be better. You got this girl!!

Set a good sleeping schedule for her, it was hard at first with my 2 year old but it definitely helps a lot! You’ll enjoy putting her to sleep and then you have time for you and your partner💕
