We are in the beginning stage of potty training our 17 month old little girl. You would think after having 4 kids I would be a pro- NOPE. I have learned that each of my children have been different with this matter at hand.

 

So we are in the beginning stages of potty training, WE ARE THINKING ABOUT beginning to work with our daughter on this matter. So we are requesting some TIPS on how you have potty trained your children or child. ANYTHING will help.

 

Today I was at the store this morning picking up MORE diapers, and debating on getting MORE diapers or Possibly purchasing the Training Pants???? What to do??? Well I had bought a small package of diapers, and then talked to my daycare provider this morning... and she had said whenever you are ready!

 

So please help with ideas or thoughts on Potty Training, thank you so much!

Hi AnitaMarie,

I agree with you. With each kid, potty training is different. I have two kids myself and I know that for sure.

Well, to start with, there are some things common to each child. Here is what I think you should do..

1. Set a time to make your baby sit on the potty chair in the morning. I did that to both my kids. Say 8 am in the morning. It all about making a habit and the earlier you start the better. It was a great success with my kids.

2. I make my kid sit on the potty chair every hour or two hours. That way they pee in the potty chair and not anywhere else. And even if my kid has peed anywhere else, I give him a stern look and point the potty out to him. You will have to be patient here and repeat it again and again.

3. Be around your child when he is on the potty chair. Make sounds, laugh, make him feel comfortable. Do not make it a forced chore.

4. Once your kid is comfortable on the potty chair, you may take him/her to the bathroom. Make him/her flush the toilet. Thats fun to watch too for kids.

5. You have to keep patience through out and I know its very hard for a working parent. I suggest patience nevertheless.

All the best!

cheers

Kavieta, that is awesome. thank you so much for your advice- I am going to begin doing so. I have a fabulous daycare provider for my daughter who I know would follow through with her. as she is waiting for me to give a go- lol. she specializes in infants to 4 yrs. so i am sure she is great at potty training and will give me tips too. i just dread the peeing or pooping in spots in bed and areas in our home, that is no fun- but i guess a part of it! thank you so much, i appreciate you taking time and will use the advice you have given me, especially the morning thing. and also at night THANKS! please add me as a friend.
I also have some advise: ( I have 4 girls and they all were full putty trained in their 2 year birthday.)

1- Ask your daughter every 2 hours to sit in the potty.
2- Buy cute underwares(for example princess ones) and tell her to "don't pee in the princess". "pee in the potty".
3- Put Diaper clothes instead of disposable diaper, it helper to learn and feel the diference between wet and dry.
4- You can use diposable diaper at night until your daughter wake up dry for a week.
5- Celebrate when she goes in the potty. YAY !!! GOOD JOB!!! - you can even give her an sticker :-)

The whole process can take 6 months. So be patient and love your daughter a lot. I hope these advises help you. Good luck!!!

I created a star chart and that worked for my 3.5 yr old boy. Also, peer pressure at his daycare was a huge motivation.

We started sitting my son on his potty before every bath when he turned 15-16 months, at first he didn't go at all, but it did get him used to sitting on his potty. Just this month we started encouraging him to sit on the potty after each meal and before and after his naps. The main trick we used to get him to sit for a longer period of time was coloring. We bought a step stool that opens up and we store paper and crayons inside. So when he goes to sit on the potty he takes out his crayons and colors until he pees or poos. The after he does go we celebrate with his favorite sitckers. I hung up a piece of colored construction paper behind his potty and he loves putting his stickers on the paper every time he goes. We also allow him to pick up the insert of his potty and pour it into the big potty, which he likes to flush and waive goodbye to his pee pee. then he washes his hands and turns out the light all by himself. We stick with the same routine and he has memorized it and seems to really enjoy being in control of all the steps involoved. We have not yet switched to the training pants because we are waiting for him to acually give us a sign that he has to go instead of us asking/putting him there. Hope this helps and Good luck!
Jasmine was the easiest girl to potty train. All it took was one accident and she would ask to go to potty every time thereafter. She was fully train day and night within a day or two before she turned 2!

We can see that Elden is following his big sister's footsteps too! :)

Since every child is different, they may be ready for potty at different point of time. I know of a quiz which can help caregivers to spot for signs of readiness in potty training. Here it is Potty Training Quiz

On the other hand, if your looking for good potty training resources, be sure to get this ebook on Potty Training in 1-3 Days. It gives you solid reasons to get your toddler diaper-free
I would not do pull ups. It is basically a diaper and they don't know the difference. I would start out by getting regular underwear with the plastic coverings. You will have to change them a lot but at least she will be able to feel the wet and not like it.
I have learned in potty training my two year old now three year old that I couldn't really use others advice I had to just follow my child's ques. So many people flooded me with their advice and stories of success. My mom told me a friend suggested peeing on cheerios an making a game out of it for my son. It sounded like a great idea in theory until we tested it. We put the cheerios in the toilet an said try it my husband showed him how it was done and Daylan ran out of the room screaming "Daddy peed on the food NOOOOOO!" after that we had a host of other potty training fails that resulted with us in the emergency room with a child who refused to use the bathroom at all even in his diaper. I had almost thrown in the towel and then I said I am going to listen to him and not to everyone else. I noticed what he liked and didn't like as far as getting dirty and what not and I used that to my advantage. My son hated water or anything wet on the floor or on him so one day I said no more diaper or anything and I just took off his pants and diapers and let him be free. He refused to just pee on the floor and went willingly to the toilet. We did this for an entire weekend and by the time school started on Monday he was potty trained. We have been out of diapers now for 2 months an haven't looked back. I personally don't suggest pull up or anything that even remotely resembles diapers it makes them a bit confused. They make cloth training pants that are really thick and are more in line with big kid undies and panties.
