Potty training question for 21 mo- I am reading Oh Crap potty training & trying to find time to do this over a LONG weekend probably Thanksgiving as it will give me a good lead of one month to practice with my child. In the meanwhile, her daycare has started teaching potty training. When home my LO removes pants, goes and sits on potty by herself when she thinks she wants to pee with the diaper on as that is not something she can remove easily. What approach do you think is the best here?

I have a cousin who occasionally asks me to watch their baby while she and her husband go out.

I was thinking of just using the gift cards to buy something for the baby and giving it back to her but is that weird / rude?
