Children are able to control their bladder and bowels when they’re physically ready, and when they want to be dry and clean. Every child is different, so it’s best not to compare your child with others.
There is no perfect time to start Training but when you start your child’s potty training use words like ‘poo’ and ‘wee’ and tell them about what you are doing when you use the loo, But remember that you can’t force your child to use a potty. If they’re not ready, you won’t be able to make them use it.
Start With small steps:
- Leave a potty where your child can see it and can get to know what it’s for. let your child see you using the toilet and explain what you’re doing.
- Teach them how to seat on potty seat also make a note that your child is not uncomfortable while using potty seat.
- If your child regularly has a bowel movement at the same time each day, leave their nappy off and suggest that they go in the potty.
- As soon as you see that your child knows when they’re going to pee, encourage them to use their potty. If your child slips up, just mop it up and wait for next time.
- A little praise from you will help a lot. Don’t give sweets as a reward, as that can end up causing more problems.
- When the time is right, your child will want to use the potty and they will just be happy to get it right.
Also, remember to make it your child’s habit to wash their hand after every use of loo and dry their hands with towel.
