Trust us, potty training isn’t really very hard and stressful when you do it correctly. There have been instances where even the very first time and single moms even without even having the dad to help out in the house, have been able to potty train their toddler within a week’s time or even less. You can do it too. Stay with us and we will show you how.
Potty training in Tiny sessions
A 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 as well as in the day multiple occasions at home. Allow them to go around their routine activities of eating, drinking and playing as they usually do, but have them sit on the pot every fifteen minutes. After the session is done, 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 after you get back to your dwelling. On the 3rd day, go out for a session for the entire 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 are not wearing any underwear or diaper, they will find no place where they can put their poop or pee; they do need to place it somewhere – and it would be a fantastic idea to do it in the bathroom. When they are finished 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 into the swirling water and having them acknowledge the nice sound of whooshing.
Give them rewards for getting it right
Some nice prizes for the potty used right can be stamps on head or hand, stickers, bubbles and even just one 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 good job that they have done by spending a comprehensive day in their dry undies or remaining completely dry for the entire night. Special food prizes which could be a pizza party for the meals or nice ice creams or sundae bars for involving the meals (you can put 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 would like something that will not cost as much, then you may find any art project that you can also do together and they’ll have the ability to show it off to others as their prize for using the potty.
