So as the mother of five now you’d think I would know a thing or two. And of course, I do. After all, I grew up as the oldest of eight children so I was always comfortable being around children. But as any parent knows – it’s different when it’s YOUR child, isn’t it?
Which leads me to my current parenting dilemma – poddy training. Again – this being my third child you would think I knew what I was doing already but each child is so different. When 5MinutesForMoms asked me to share what Wal-Mart was doing with their Baby Step’s Website information I was interested to see what they would have to say. Help for new babies in the areas parents have the most questions about, I thought it would be primarily about diapering, feeding and health.
So imagine my delight when I saw some interesting videos about poddy training! Because this Little Man of ours is definitely not interested right now. Browsing through the poddy training videos, especially “What to Do When Poddy Training Isn’t Working” was reassuring to me that it’s ok to wait a little longer.
See more subjects and titles on the BabySteps Website or 5MinutesforMoms for a full listing of the videos provided. Hopefully future titles will include a Breastfeeding guide or two since that’s the only subject I didn’t see mentioned that I think should be covered. Otherwise nutrition, basic health, diapering and poddy training are all mentioned. This is a link I could see including in a resource handout at an Infant Care Childbirth Education Class.
I was compensated for review the BabySteps Website. I really DO have a three year old who has no desire to sit in “the big boy poddy.” You’d think I would have it all down to a science by now but I really, truly do not.
