Potty Training:

When your child is ready, you will want to begin potty training. All kids are ready to be trained at different ages, and the average best time to train is around 2 ½. The very first step to potty training your child is to make sure that they are ready. The following is a list of some of the signs of readiness your child may display:

• Telling you when they are dirty or wet and wanting their diaper off
• Showing an interest in the potty
• Staying dry for entire naps and most or all of the night
• On a regular schedule for bowel movements
• Able to speak well enough to communicate with you that they need to go
• Telling you before they dirty or wet their diaper

Once your child begins to show most or all of these signs, you may want to start potty training. There are many different methods to choose from that you can use, which include the following few:

• The reward method—this can be with or without a potty chart and it is a situation in which you give your child a reward for using the potty like a big kid.

• The naked method—this is the method in which your child wears nothing from the waist down. Many children train very quickly like this because they don't like the feeling of it running down their leg.
This method can be used with or without the juice method, in which you give your child loads and loads of juice all day long so that the opportunity to try to use the potty is more frequent.

• The potty doll method—this is the method in which you demonstrate to your child how to use the potty by using a doll that goes potty on their own little chair. Then, after the doll potties, you celebrate the accomplishment with a party. Then, when your child does it successfully, you celebrate with a party for them too.

• The book and video method—this is the method in which you let your child watch videos and read books while the sit and wait to have to go. If you will be using this method, it is a good idea to get books and videos that actually pertain to potty training for them to look at and watch while they are sitting there. This will help them focus and remember what they are supposed to be doing.

• The PODS method—this is the method in which you aren't using quite a diaper, but you also aren't using just underwear. PODS (potty on discrete strips) can help a child learn to potty train much faster than with pull-ups because they can actually feel the moisture, and it is a lot less messy than going without anything.

There are many other ways to try to potty train your child, and you should do whatever will work best for you and your child. This is the thing that many people don’t ever bother to inform parents of: there is no one right way to do it. Instead, it all depends on you and your child.
