From Baby Blues to Real Green and Some Faves

Hey Everyone! Hope you had an awesome week. I have had a busy week for sure. Two words: Potty training

We have a 2 year old and a 9 month old, so you can imagine that diapers have made quite a dent in our wallets. As hard as it is to watch my baby girl grow up,  I have made it my mission this week to work with my Tessa on using the potty. We have used 4 diapers with her in the past 2 days which is amazing!  I am excited to see how long we can make the box last. We will be done with formula in a few months.

This will be approximately $80.00 we will be able to save.  I am really excited about this.

Tessa is doing so well with the potty training, but Mommy is exhausted! I can’t wait to reap the rewards from this taxing predicament.  I will finish up with her, just in time to start all over again with her little sister.

I was able to escape the potty world for a little while this week and came upon some great reads! Enjoy!

Congrats on the savings! My son is almost 11 months. Is there a recommended age for potty training? Thanks!

Thank you! Every child is ready at different times. We started with Tessa at 18 months, but I didn’t stick with it and she wasn’t ready. It is so much easier this time around. She tells us when she has to go, and today after a solid week, she had no accidents! It’s not fun,but it will be worth it!

Good points. Diapers can be quite expensive, and while I may have never thought of potty training in the context of another source of saving money, you’re exactly right!

Thanks for the mention, Julie. I really appreciate it.
