103 203
Every parent is anxious for the time when I don't have to buy diapers anymore.
These are a burden and expense for many Americans, as well as other people in the world.
It's not like the old days when we used to use cloth diapers.
These things are enormous expense so it is important to know when your child is ready to start using the toilet and work with them in order to attain this.
All children are different, and every one of them has their own mindset and their own timetable for using the toilet.
For the most part, children are normally ready to start being potty trained around the age of 24 to 30 months.
The following are some signs that you can look for to see that your child is ready to begin training.
  • If your child goes big potty around the same time every day.
  • If your child is able to keep their diaper dry for periods of longer than two hours, and if they wake up dry after they have taken a nap, this is a sign.
  • If your child can tell when they are going potty.
    For example if they make certain facial expressions that signify this deed, then they are ready.
  • If your child tells you that they have a dirty diaper and would like you to change it, then they are ready.
  • If your child is at the stage in their life when they are eager to make you happy and help you with things, and they are able to follow simple instructions, then they are ready.
  • If your child tells you that they want to use the toilet or if they determine that the don't want to wear diaper anymore and that they want to wear underwear, then they are ready.
Any of these things can signify that your child is ready to be trained to use the toilet, but there could be other signs as well.
You as the parent or the only one who truly knows your child, and all you need to do is pay attention really.
If you think that your child is ready, then there's some tips below that may help the process go a little easier.
  • Your child needs a potty chair.
    If your child is willing, have them sit on the potty to get used to it while they are doing the deed with a diaper on.
  • Children learn by watching, so don't be ashamed or afraid to let "your child" of the same sex watch you use the toilet so they understand and can see how it is done.
  • Make sure that your child has clothes that are easy to get off, as most times it's a matter of split-second timing to get them on the potty in time.
    Pull on like pull-ups and such make it a lot easier than normal diapers.
  • Whenever your child has a successful encounter with the potty, make sure that you raise them and reward them for doing so.
    On the other hand when they don't make it on time, don't scold or chastise them and keep your tone casual.
    Accidents are common and often times frequent, but persistence and patience pays off.
  • It may take your child longer to learn how to control their bladder then it does their bowels.
    This is normal.
    If your child can tell when they have to go pee, and try to get them on the toilet every 30 or 60 minutes.
    Every time they are successful praise them, and give them encouragement when they have an accident.
Getting mad or impatient or irritable with your child while going through this process will not help the situation at all.
It takes love and gentle kindness to work you child through this transition in their life.
