Potty Training Tips
Potty training is a significant milestone in a child’s life. But before you try to potty train your toddler, you need to assess if your child is ready to say goodbye to diapers. Pushing your child to use the toilet before they are ready will actually make the process more difficult. Read on for the dos and don’ts of potty training.
How to potty train
Assess your child’s readiness: If your child is able to walk or run steadily and remains dry for about two hours (or when asleep), your child might be ready for potty training. Your child should also be able to sit quietly for about five minutes, pull their pants up and down, and follow simple instructions.
Buy potty training equipment: Buy a comfortable adapter seat or a child-size potty seat that can latch on to your toilet. Involve your child when shopping for potty seats and buy the one that your child wants. Also buy some potty training pants which your child can take off on his own when he needs to use the potty.
