Could imagine potty training your son or daughter at five or six months old? Or training them to use the potty from day one without using diapers at all?
Well, if your name is Gisele Bundchen, Alicia Silverstone, or Mayim Bialik, you have.
While I was still trying to figure out a sleeping pattern for my child and myself when he was at that age, these celebrity moms did what most parents thought would be impossible – have them potty trained before they could even sit up or walk on their own. Ambitious, right?
Not every celebrity mother was in a hurry to get their kids out of diapers though – celebrity parents such as Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony waited until their twins Emme and Max were 3 years old and actor Kevin Nealon has his son potty trained at age 4.
Sure, there will always be a debate as to when is “too early” and when is “too late,” but as many parents can agree, it’s not always such an easy task. A lot of messy accidents, bribery, and long hours spent on the potty are usually part of the process. Mom Britney Spears has even said that potty training her two sons was the most difficult job for her as a mother so far.
