Some kids potty train very easily. Others…not so much. But a few weeks of mess and toddler angst is usually preferable to changing diapers until the kid is in kindergarten. My nephew is about 15 months old. He’s still a little young for potty training, but we have started thinking about it. That’s why I;m really excited that I stumbled across this article by Doman Mom for things that you can do with your baby that will make potty training easier in the future! Check out some of her tips here:
-When you notice your baby “going,” acknowledge it with a word or phrase. Your baby will learn to associate the word (“poo poo”) with the action / sensation.
-Let your mobile baby watch you go to the bathroom, so they can model their behavior later.
-Buy a small potty and keep it around long, long before you plan to use it. Some kids do not do well with new things! Have your baby sit on the potty when he goes, even with his diaper on.
