Top Tips For Successful Potty Training

Article on Potty Training Tips by:  Painless Potty Training

    • A toddler usually potty trains at about the age of 2. Babies who use cloth diapers can be expected to potty train 5 to 12 months earlier. Girls tend to potty train faster than boys.
    • Starting too early will usually result in spending half your time waiting for your toddler to potty.
    • Don’t start if there are big changes ahead, such as: a new baby in the family, you have started working or the busy holiday season is upon you. Potty Training Tips
    • Summer months make potty training easier because toddlers can wear underwear or training pants with just a T-shirt. Less clothing for a toddler to remove when going to the potty means fewer accidents.
    • Remember the toilet seat can seem awfully big to your child. Your first step in training should be to invest in a small potty chair or a seat to attach to your toilet. Choose a color and design that will work best to your child. A desirable potty should allow your child to put his feet on the floor. This helps your child to push when having a bowel movement.
    • Every day, set a specific time when your child is fully clothed and set him on the potty seat. Try to do this during the time he's likely to have a bowel movement. This will help your child to get familiar with the potty and acknowledge it as part of his daily routine. If your child doesn't want to sit on it, that's OK. If he’s afraid, put it off for a few days.

    • Your child will have accidents during his potty training, so be patient. Do not get mad. Do not scold or punish him. Handle accidents with calm matter-of-factness. All children undergo the same process before they become potty-trained. You can’t have toilet training without accidents, and most children will have them occasionally for as long as six months after they’ve finished training. When an accident occurs, stay calm and supportive.
    • Teach your child about the bowel movement and its process. Explain it simply and sweetly.

    The best way of encouraging your child is to constantly praise him:

    • Whenever he sits and tries to go.
    • When he was able to sit for 15 seconds or longer.
    • When he makes progress.
    • Praise your child anytime he “makes” something in the potty-chair, particularly in the early stages.

    Be positive. If nothing happens, tell him, ''That's OK,” or ''Good try, we can try it again later.''

    Gaining mastery over toilet training can be time-consuming, and it varies from one child to the next. Some kids become pros in a few days, but most take many weeks. Night-time training can take even longer. Don’t try to coerce your child into moving faster through the training process than he’s capable of. Let him take his time and get used to the process. Make him move at each level on his own pace.
