Oh yes, we always did that at the beginning. Now she just
comes down when called. The kids love to build with their
legos and then have Kimmy play with their creation(s). When
her playground is on the coffee table, and we are watching TV,
instead of playing directly with her, occasionally she will
step out of her boundry, but all we have to do is say Kimmy in
a certain fashion and she will jump back into her boundry. And
if she continues to do this to get our attention, we put her
back in her cage. And she SQUAWKS! This gets ignored, and she
is welcomed to come back out after she gets quiet for a bit.
We can see the message is in progress. There is one on one
time and group time, just like my children get.
I was wondering, the kids now build things on a plastic
playpen mat because of Kimmy's feces (easy to clean and
disinfect), is she old enough (6 wks) to start potty training
to keep it down to a minimal. And if so, where/how do we begin?
