Potty Training-Learning-Teaching

Whatever it is you call it, I need your wisdom! Eliza has been going on the potty for a few months now. It is nothing we push upon her, it is before and after bed and then if she tells me she needs to go. She does great at telling me, but usually while she is going or right after. I think this is wonderful as she isn't even 18months.

When we try and go potty she either instantly goes, or just wants to play with bath toys or look at books. I do not use rewards(besides lots of praise), but I am starting to wonder if that would boost her interest.

So this is why I come to you mommies....reward or no reward, that is the question!!!

I don't have any little ones myself, but I work in a daycare where we use stickers! And when their sticker sheet is full they get to take it home. Another little boy I have watched, his parents made a chart where for every 10 stickers he got on his chart, he got a matchbox car. He picked it up really quickly, and I've always loved the stickers charts! Inexpensive, but a fun treat that isn't candy. =]
