I have a 2.5 year old, who is not potty trained.
I've never done it with a newborn but I would defiently put the potty where she can see it and encourage her to go for it.
I'm pretty much in the same boat as you are. DD turned 2 in April and while my goal was to have her fully potty trained before Charlotte got here, it just aint gonna happen! She does have days where she wants to wear panties and goes pee on the potty, but I'm not really pushing her, and I feel like I"m constantly asking her if she has to go only to have her have an accident. DH is kinda mad that I'm not being alittle more pushy with the PTing, but it's hard and on his days off he's really no help with it either!
My other concern is that she may regress when Charlotte gets here. I'm hoping that when she sees that the baby is wearing diapers she will want to wear panties more and be more proactive about going potty! I guess we will see tho!
I'm all for delaying potty training if kids aren't ready/willfully refuse.
LOL, yes I know it is on their time, although wish it weren't
DD turned 3 a week before DS was born.
DD is 26 months and we haven't even started potty training yet. As much as it would have been nice to have her trained by the time the new baby arrives, she's showing no signs of readiness (even my doctor agrees) so I've decided not to push it. If I started now and we had some success, she'd likely regress when LO gets here in September anyway. I'll wait a few more months and then reassess. Yes, it might be difficult potty training a toddler with a newborn around but there's nothing to be gained by stressing us both out when she's clearly not ready yet.
