What comes first big girl bed or potty training? New sibling on the way!
I’m pregnant with our second child who is due to be born in 12 weeks. Our first (girl) just turned 2 last month. She is not potty trained and still sleeps in a crib. My 2 year old will be moving to a new room with a new bed so the baby will be able to move into the “nursery” at a few months old. What should happen first? Move her into her new bed in her new room or try to tackle potty training? Should I try to do it all before the new sibling arrives on scene, or wait until after the newness of the baby wears off? She sleeps like a champ in her crib right now so I just hate to mess up a good thing. Or am I going to have a huge mess trying to care for an infant and make all these big changes with a toddler too? I’m not sure if she’s even ready to potty train. She shows an interest in sitting on the potty, but sits there for about 1 second and then stands up to check to see if there’s anything in there. Lol. Some people are talking about potty training at like 18 months, our pediatrician said it’s usually closer to 3 when kids are ready. I’d love to hear about how people navigated this with kids so close in age and the positives and negatives of your experiences. Sorry if this is a rambling mess. It’s 4:00am and I can’t sleep. Lol.
