Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Well, dh gave Mags her bath tonight. She likes to play with her potty. When she's in there and has the opportunity to sit on it, she'll sit there for a while. Usually clothes on and all :)

He was running her water and she pee-peed in the potty a little. No prompting at all. He said when she got up, he just noticed some peepee in there.

I'm very proud and I did make a big deal out of it for her.

do y'all think I should start trying to train her?

Part of me is bubbling but part of me is cautions not to get too excited.

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
If she is showing interest - definitely try it. If she isn't ready then you can try again later.

Good luck!

Yeah, see it seems so early but I hate to miss the opportunity. Like this morning I asked her to go, but she wouldn't sit on it. I don't want to push it on her just to cause problems down the road. I'm gonna try to do it "gently" :)

I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
wahoo!! do it do it do it!!!

A has been showing a lot of interest lately also as well. She likes to sit on her potty. I too feel it is a bit early but I don't want to miss the opportunity. I just leave the potty out and if she mentions it then fine. If not oh well. Good luck!
Check with your
doctor first!
