Letting my daughter go naked/pantsless has been the biggest step forward in getting her used to using the potty!

My best tip would be not to force it!

I only have a 13 month old, so I have yet to experience the potty training stage yet, so I am really not one to give advice… But I would say positive reinforcement and consistency is what I plan on doing when the time comes!!

I absolutely loved teaching my daughter how to sign potty/poop early on so that she could communicate with us even before she could verbally say those words!

Put soft, non-buttoned pants or shorts on your little one while potty training so that they can get them on and off easily so they can learn independence.

Don’t attempt till your kid is ready, unless you know they are ready and just being lazy…in that case push them hard! :)

i have used ‘potty sounds’ with my son since he was a few months old, & now he sometimes (at 18 months) will make the sounds when he has to pee.. or as he’s peeing.. or sometimes after! :D it’s all about ‘potty awareness’ for us right now.. i will let him sit on his potty when he feels like it too & cue him with the sounds, mostly to get him used to it, but he has peed in his potty a few times!! :)

Start in the spring/summer so there is less clothes for your child to remove when he’s running for the potty. Also, if he can run around naked outside, that can be helpful.

I have not potty trained any toddlers yet, but I’ve heard don’t force the issue. When they’re ready to be potty trained, they’ll potty train.

Be consistent and sometimes if the child is being stubborn like refusing to poop in the potty then you may have to make the child change them self and get their own little hands dirty. They really will not like this and usually they only have to change themselves one or 2 times before they decide pooping in the potty is better than using their training pants.

I haven’t done traditional potty training, but we have been EC-ing our son since day one. He is twelve months old and started getting the hang of it around 9 or 10 months. It looks like he will be out of diapers before his second birthday and I think he really enjoys keeping his diaper dry.

Reply

15 Melanie June 5, 2012 at 11:33 am

I don’t have a tip per se because my little one is just 4 months old, but we’re already doing EC with her. We just give her the chance to sit on the pot when she’s likely to have to go, and praise her to the sky when she does (which is pretty often). She loves her half-naked potty time and will hopefully catch on very soon!

Pull-ups didn’t work for me. They are too much like diapers that catch the pee so your kid can go about their day. Putting my little girl in undies for 3 days left me with a lot of cleaning but when she realized her pee won’t get caught by the undies it made her think twice about where she was peeing.

my daughter is only 4 months old so we haven’t potty trained yet, but my little girl loves to pee and poop when her diaper is off so we’re already thinking about potty training!

I have 3 older children, and a 1-year-old. My best advice would be to keep consistent, no matter where you are or who you are with. Children get confused with potty training easily. So when you are both ready, do it and STICK with it.

I don’t really have one as I’ve never potty trained a child before- I guess persistence is key

use training underwear to prevent messes at night

21 Richelle June 5, 2012 at 9:52 pm

My best tip is follow your gut not what other moms or babes are doing. I felt pressured into rushing my babe into training and it back fired like I knew would happen. I backed off a month or so and they showed me when they were ready. It doesn’t matter when you or your husband or whoever were trained. Each babe is their own person :) And it will be so rewarding when it happens for all.

training tip…for boys use dye. I read online that if you put food coloring as red or blue and have them pee in their potty the colors will change to orange and green so they will aim better.

We are in the middle of potty training, so we are at the ‘try this, try that’ stage! But my daughter loves blowing out candles, so we have matches and candles in every bathroom and most of the time that is an extra incentive for her to sit on the toilet :)

26 Ro'Chele A June 6, 2012 at 9:57 pm

I’ve never potty trained, but my much younger cousin really enjoyed putting a song with the actions. We’d sing “La di da di, we like to potty” in a Slick Rick voice. She loved it!

I’ve been familiarizing my daughter (18 months old) with the potty for a couple months – reading potty books, talking through what I’m doing when I use the bathroom, having her sit on the potty, etc. I started having her sit on the potty clothed to get her comfortable with it, but this last week have started taking her diaper off first – and she’s going! The last four days she’s peed in the potty each day at least once, and pooped twice! We’re keeping it casual and she’s still in diapers. If I ask her if she wants to use the potty and she says no, then I don’t force her. At this point I’m mainly trying to make potty time part of our daily routine.

Follow your child’s cues for when they are ready to start and follow their lead.

Not sure in the advice department. My older son did it himself before he could talk he pointed at the potty. I put him on the potty to see what would happen. He peed immediately. That was it. Then right before he turned four he said he wanted to wear regular underwear to bed. That was the end of it. Stayed tuned to find out what happens with the second verse. He will probably be in diapers until he is ten seeing how easy thing number one was. Great ideas out there.

We start out by taking our daughter frequently during the day to the potty then follow their lead as get hang of it.

I think my best advice is to give it time. its so much easier when its not a fight. we don’t do a rewards system and that has worked well for us. just praise and high fives. we let them do the naked thing too, but just give it time and it will come!

My potty training tips- Take your little one to the bathroom often (I started with every 15 min) and I did a sticker reward chart and my son gets a chocolate covered o (from trader joe’s) every time he goes to the bathroom. The chocolate o’s are working the best! haha :)

I have only potty-trained one so far but I think it helped him to see us use the toilet (it’s hard to keep kids out of the bathroom!) :-P And I let him run around in just a t-shirt, he figured it out pretty quickly! I also made sure there was a potty close by to where he played the most, so it made it easy for him to get there in time.

My first is still on the way so I don’t have any tipes. But the best advice I’ve heard is to wait until the child is ready, don’t try andpush potty training on them.

I haven’t potty-trained any kids myself, but my friend’s kid would hide behind something when they were soiling their diaper–a sure sign she was ready for training, because she was aware of her action, and it could be directed to the potty!
