Yup...I think you pretty much have everything covered in the potty training department. Not the easiest stage and definately not a fun stage either. Definately depends on each child. I know my oldest one was terrible for potty training. It took us about a year and a half before he was without a diaper completely, and even after that he still was peeing in the bed 4-5 times per week. With my little guy, he picked up right away, he has been potty trained since he was about 2 and a half. We hardly ever have to wake up in the middle of the night to change his sheets...thank god!!!
