Trust us, potty training is not really very hard and stressful when you do it properly. There have been cases where even the very first time and single mothers even having the father to help out in the house, have been able to potty train their toddler in a week’s time or even less. You can do it as well. Stay with us and we’ll show you how.
Potty training in Tiny sessions
A whole lot of books have been written which suggest that you need to start with potty training in routine sessions. This method of training suggests that you would want to train the toddler in the morning time as well as in the afternoon multiple times at home. Let them go around their routine activities of eating, drinking and enjoying as they generally do, but have them sit on the pot every fifteen minutes. When the session is completed, just put them back in the diaper or their pull ups and continue with your regular activities of daily. If you take them out, then have a session as soon as you get back to your home. On the 3rd day, go out for a session for the whole day. When leaving the house, just make sure that you are carrying out a potty in your car or only visit places that are sure to have restrooms for the use of the general public.
Try some naked time
Allow your toddler to go around all their activities naked, or just put on a T-shirt. Since they’re not wearing any underwear or diaper, they will find no place where they can put their poop or urine; they do need to place it somewhere – and it would be a good idea to do it in the toilet. When they are done using the potty, be certain that you get a look so you know all is well. Make them understand that flushing is a huge deal by pointing them to the swirling water and having them acknowledge the wonderful sound of whooshing.
Some nice prizes for the potty used right can be stamps on head or hand, stickers, bubbles and even only 1 part of M&Ms. You can even go the extra mile and take your toddler to a dollar store where they get to pick out the special reward for the fantastic job that they have done by spending a complete day in their dry undies or remaining completely dry for the whole night. Special food prizes which could be a pizza party for the foods or ice creams or sundae bars for between the foods (you can place some gummy bears, sprinkles and cherries in different bowl and have your toddler produce the sundae in their own) are all awesome ideas. However, if you want something which will not cost as much, then you may find any art project which you can also do together and they will be able to show it off to others as their prize for using the potty.
