Potty TrainingWhen potting training the toddler patience is the solution. Just because your child is not as quick as the next child for weeing and pooing in the potty does not mean you have to rush him or her off to the doctor. Children are different, some being slower than others at learning things, just like walking and talking. Well, this goes for potty training too.

Toddlers and babies have a lot to take in as they are in the learning stages. 10 months upwards and depending on if the toddler is ahead of their time, then this may be a good time to introduce them to the potty.

Some toddlers fly through the potty training stage while others don’t. Some may even panic when you try to sit them on it. If an infant shows fear of the potty do not force them too. Once again you will find as you go along when is the right time to be trying them out with sitting them on the potty, again no shouting or using force. Kids have their own way of letting you know when they are ready to use the potty.

Some signs a toddler wanting to wee or poo might include them dancing on the spot trying to hold it in. While the expression on their face is another giveaway signal. For every time you see this mention the potty or try placing them on it. Repeat repeat repeat for as long as it takes when these signs are there.

It can be a frustrating time getting baby to use the potty, but we all have to do it. To the youngster potty training is a complicated issue which includes various types of actions that need to be remembered in order, so bear this mind and consider the little mite at this time trying to take it all in.

Signs to look out for readiness:

The toddler stays dry for several hours of the day and starts to have a specific time for a bowel movement. This shows they gain control over their removal muscles which is a necessity for potty training sessions to be triumphant. Toddlers don’t like to be left to long in a wet or soiled nappy and will pull at it to remove it. You as a mother when you see the toddler squat and grunt should see this as a sign they are ready to open their bowels. Have toilet tissue close by.

Toddlers understand basic instructions and have an attention span long enough to make it to the potty. They will remember the potty is for weeing and pooing in. Just keep on reminding the child frequently to use it. Some kids even though they remember what the potty is for they tend to forget to use it until its too late.

Little boys and girls love the catchy little phrases you say or do for different actions. For instance: the penis might be his Willy or Widgee, and the girl, her Tuppence or Minnie.

Let the child pick his or her own potty when going out to buy one.

An ideal way to begin potty training is to sit the child while still in their nappy on the potty at around the same time every day when you think they need a go the toilet. This will get them used to being, sat on the potty.

Make potty training fun for the infant. This way they will begin to look forward to this time.

Try sitting the child’s favourite cuddly toy on the potty to coax them to follow what the teddy or dolly is doing.

Explain in a funny way this is where they should go if they feel like they need to have a wee like their toy is doing.

Keep the potty in the same place so that it’s always accessible.

Reward charts are great for getting a child to use the potty. Draw up a reward chart and mark a star each time your child uses the potty. Reward them with whatever works best like a piece of fruit being the healthiest option. In my case chocolate worked every go

When your child uses the potty praise and give them big hugs, cheer them on and clap or whatever does the trick. Show how pleased you are with their effort and let them know that they are mummy’s big boy or big girl now they are out of nappies and don’t need anymore
