If you are beginning to potty train or already have been, you may be looking to set up a potty training routine to put your child on a schedule of when to go, so they get used to using the bathroom and to help them remember to go as well.
When children are potty training, they may not be able to wipe themselves. This is normal, since they cannot necessarily reach and they do not have the motor skills yet to be able to wipe themselves. You will need to check your child, as well as possibly continue to help them wipe too up until they are 5 to 6 years of age.
If you have been trying to figure out when to discipline or if you should depending on your child’s age, then you are in the same situation many parents fall into. It can be hard to know when to exact discipline on a child and when the right age is to start, however there is no right time per say. Instead a one year old may not respond to a time out or taking something away, since they are too young to understand cause and effect, as are most toddlers.
Toilet training does need to continue to happen, even when traveling. There has to be consistency when you are potty training. Consistency will be a huge factor in how quickly your child picks up on potty training and the entire experience that you and your child have when they are learning.
Some children have no interest in potty training. Many children will choose to hold their pee or poo, never say anything when they have to go or have gone and completely resist using the potty chair. This is not an uncommon problem for many parents to face. However, you do not want to continue to buy diapers forever and have the potty chair you bought continue to go on unused.
When you begin potty training, you will need to have a potty chair or potty seat for your child to use. The easier it is for your child to use the bathroom, the more likely they will be to want to go.
When it comes to potty training many parents and even children want to keep using the diapers. Parents sometimes allow their child to wear a diaper at night, since they have not been nighttime potty trained yet and they do not want any accidents. Or on long car rides or trips to do errands the child is in a diaper so that there will be less chance of an accident happening.
If you are ready to start potty training and so is your toddler, than there are definitely some potty training products that you will want to have on hand. These are a necessity in many ways, as well as they will make potty training so much easier too.
Making potty training fun is important! Some parents are letting their child use their reward stickers, drawings, bling to decorate their potty chairs. You can just let your child go wild and really make their potty chair their own.
