Attention all moms, babysitters, etc. I need some advice. I have two issues with Iz that I can't seem to get a hold of.
1). Bathtime drama. I have finally gotten to the point where Izzy can take a bath without throwing a huge fit. But, as soon as I even talk about washing her hair- its all out screams. I cannot wash her hair without a huge crying fit. I have tried using smaller cups, doing it faster, doing it slower, having her hold a washcloth- and yet the tears reign. I cannot handle this drama- its crazy! Any washing of the hair tips?
2.) Poopy diapers. Izzy has an amazing internal clock. She always poops during her naptime. She sleeps with diapers on since she is not night trained yet (she's not even three). I would really love for her to start doing her #2 business on the potty instead of in diapers. I have tried letting her take naps without diapers- but she has wet the bed- and well, thats just a mess. I have tried moving her lunch time earlier and naptime later to try to get her to poop before naptime. She has a standing offer to get to pick out anything from the dollar store when she poops on the potty. So far, no such luck. Any tips for getting poop where it belongs?
Edit to add a #3)
How do you teach a kid to spit? I'm trying to transition Izzy to real kiddie toothpaste with the flouride- but she won't spit. She has been using a toddler training paste that does not have flouride so she can swallow it. I've tried teaching her to spit with it and trying to get her spit with water, but no such luck! I can't get this girl to spit. Any ideas?
