New mom here too

Hi all!!
I have been stalking this forum for a few months now!! lol!! I thought I should finally introduce myself. My baby Maggie is just about 15 weeks. I just adore her!!!
She is doing well with her potty training, I am also using the bells. The last she had an accident was when she had diarrehea last week.(at least she left it for me by the back door!!) Now you know b/c I just wrote this she'll be having an accident today!!
We are also doing puppy kindergarten together. We are doing it through a trainer that has a small store front that she does it out of. It seems to be helping especially with dealing with her and my kids. She does alot of nipping of their clothes. It's not aggressive she just thinks it's such fun!! Especially my little one who she thinks is a giant squeaky toy. Every time she nips her she yells out or hops or moves. Great fun for Maggie, not so much for my 6 year old. Any ideas on how to help that?
I tried to attach photos I hope it worked. I love looking at all yours!!

She is adorable
Dr Ian Dunbar has a great video for kids (I can't remember the exact name of the video but it has something to do with new puppy in the house???)

Maggie is adorable and just a month or so younger than my Picasso. Welcome to the forum and since you've been stalking for a bit, you already know what a great resource it is!

Welcome welcome. What a gorgeous looking pup. Congrats on the puppy classes. They are EXTREMELY important. Their primary purpose is to teach bite inhibition as well as socialization. Do "nip" the nipping in the bud. We have to teach them human bite inhibition as well. Here is a great article . http://www.dogstardaily.com/training/puppy-biting

What a cutie pie! Glad you finally stuck your toe in the pond and joined us in conversation. You'll find a great group of caring, helpful people here. I agree with Dave (always do) about nipping the nipping in the bud.

You'll find that Dave always has the perfect thing to read, whatever situation comes up with your fur baby. Happy to have you with us.

Welcome- your Maggie looks JUST like my Rolo!! And they are almost the same age-
I don't have any advice for the puppy nipping- except that they seem to eventually grow out of it-
