The Huggies corporation somehow found out that I have a 27 month old and sent me this mailer the other day. (Notice how it says "Free Subscription" in the upper right hand corner... Yeah, it's a "Free Subscription" to their advertising. Lame.)
As if I already didn't feel a lot of pressure to potty train Luke, now I have Huggies taunting me as well. Evidently, according to this mailer, everyone potty trains their child at 27 months old. Who knew?!
Well, Huggies, I see right through your little marketing ploy! If you pressure parents into potty training their 27 month olds, they will be forced into buying packages of Pull-Ups to take care of the inevitable mess that will follow as a result of premature potty training. I'm no dummy.
The question still remains though -- when should I start potty training Luke? We have the all-star seat, but he never really goes to the bathroom on it. It's more like a toy for him. He likes to pretend, but when all is said and done he gets mad if I don't put a diaper on him. Are there any good methods or books I should read so that I can avoid buying Pull-Ups when I actually start potty training?
