Is It Time To Start Potty

Parenting After changing diaper after diaper over the past two years, you can’t wait to start potty training your toddler. But is it time to start potty training yet? We don’t want to start to early and push our child into something he or she is not yet ready for. So, how do you know it is time to give the potty a try? While there is not set date on when a child should be ready, most of them start potty training somewhere around the ages of 2 to 4. When your child is ready, he or she will let you know by showing some of the behaviors listed below Shows Interest In Potty One of the first ways to tell that it’s time to give potty a try is when your child gets curious about what you are doing in the bathroom. This is a great time to start the potty training conversation. Tell your child in simple terms what you are doing and why you are not wearing a diaper. Un.fortable In A Wet Diaper Are you noticing that your child is getting increasingly un.fortable in a wet diaper and asks to be changed right away? If so, he or she is ready for a potty. Some kids will even give you some sort of indication that they are getting ready to go. An example would be a child that hides in a favorite spot to pee. This awareness of using the bathroom is a big first step toward successful potty training. Can Undress Himself / Herself Another big sign is your child’s ability to undress him or herself, or at least make the attempt to do so. As you can imagine, being able to pull pants up and down is an important skill in potty training. When your child is showing any of the signs mentioned, go ahead and give potty training a try. As long as you don’t force the issue, you have nothing to lose. If you read your child’s signs wrong and he or she isn’t ready, you will notice it within a few days. Just go back to diapers and wait a few more weeks before trying again. On the other hand, your child might just be ready and take to the potty within a few days. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
