Potty Training Ideas- A List Of Tips To Get You Started
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you about to begin the process of potty training your child, and in need of some potty training ideas? Here’s a list of potty training ideas and tips for you to consider:

• In the beginning, sit your toddler on the potty once an hour. This will help the child to develop a routine.

• If possible, begin potty training in the spring or summer. We wear fewer clothes during this time, and it will allow your child to get in and out of their clothing much easier.

• Consistency and commitment are key! Once you have taken your child out of the diaper, they should stay out of them. Going back and forth will confuse your child and can significantly slow down the learning process.

• Make sure your child eats lots of fruits and veggies during this period. Eating fruits and vegetables will produce softer bowel movements. A difficult or painful bowel movement may scare your child and discourage him from wanting to potty train.

• Everyone that will help with potty training your child (grandparents, daycare provider, sitter) should be on the same page and following the same rules and approach when it comes to potty training.

• Keep the potty in a place where your toddler can easily get to it.

• Never hesitate to change your method or approach. If one approach doesn’t seem to be working, try a new one!

• Teach your toddler good washroom habits. Make sure they learn to wipe themselves and wash their hands properly.

• Be patient with your toddler. If at any time they refuse to sit on the potty, don’t force it. Try again later.

• NEVER punish your child for having potty accidents. This is a learning experience for them, and they will not always get it right.

• When they do make mistakes, give your child the responsibility of changing their own underwear. Place clean underwear in a place where your child can easily access it.

• You should still potty train, even when you and your child are on the go. Bring along a portable potty, or a child adapter seat when you are out and about.

• It’s okay to reward your child for their progress with special treats or gifts. Let them have their favorite snack or a small, inexpensive toy.

• Use potty training videos, sing songs and read books about potty training, and play potty training games. This will make potty training more exciting and fun for your toddler.
