Effective ways to potty train?
I'm starting to potty train my 21 month old son. We are using a toilet insert on a regular toilet and he has no problem going pee, but every time he goes he sticks his hands in his pee stream. I've tried telling him no, holding his hands to the side. Yes, it's sterile in and of itself, but he then touches his face or tries putting his fingers in his mouth. Gross! Any suggestio... More
My 25 month old was doing pretty okay with potty training. He started saying he needs to poop every time he needed to poop so I wasn’t cleaning poopie diapers or accidents for awhile but lately he doesn’t tell me he poops on his pull up. He didn’t poop for like two days because he was sick and really didn’t eat much maybe he forgot through out those days? Has this happen to any other mom? Any a... More
My son is 4 and I am going to try potty training again. We have tried sitting him on the potty when he wakes up dry but he just cries and holds it and asked for the diaper. Would it be better to get him one of those kid Potts? What has everyone else found that is successful?
My daughter is 26 months and will walk up to the potty and pull down her pants, but she has already gone in her diaper. Her daycare is against pull ups, but I bought some of the Huggies Cool to learn pull ups that have a cooling sensation when wet. I want to try them on her for a few weekends with a potty watch to alter us to try to potty frequently to see if it clicks with her that she has to ... More
I'm starting to potty train my two-year-old. I figured since she hates her diaper changed now, she might be ready to start potty training. So I'm wondering what other ppl do to maybe hurry along the pee? Lol I sat in the bthrm for an hr waiting w her last night.
Disciplining my 4 y.o has been an uphill battle. She throws tantrums and just won't listen. I have not always been stern on following through with my "threats". Most punishments are just time in time out until the yelling and stomping stops. Today enough was enough. I took her phone and she got no dessert. Shortly after I went in her room to check on her only to be welcomed by a ... More
So I’ve been thinking ahead( unfortunately it’s like a disease lol) and am wondering what are your thoughts on potty training a boy? Do we get a seat for toilet or one of the potty seats and graduate up to that. When we potty trained my niece we went froggy potty and then she started using the big one the way it was - we never even thought to get her a seat for it.... what are your thoughts and... More
My 4 year old has been potty trained since he was 2 1/2 years old but we still can’t nail down the nighttime training. He wears pull ups and soaks them through some nights and other nights I’ll have to strip the bed because he leaks onto the sheets. I do not feel comfortable taking his water cup away at bedtime as I would not like it if that was done to me. The air here is very dry in the winte... More
My LO turned 3 in October and is really good about telling us when he has to go potty. Typically when he tells us and goes on the potty, he pees. He has pooped on the potty before, but I guess he doesn’t remember because he seems to hold it in. He will go in his pants than tell us he has to poop in the potty. Who had felt with this problem and what did you do to overcome it? It seems to be a cy... More
My son who will be 3 in April has been daytime potty trained for a few months- did great, picked it up so quick and self initiated for both pee and poop. Now, poop is iffy- sometimes he will do it in the toilet, other times he holds it for his nap time pull-up. Just looking for some tips in what I can do to help him get back to self initiating poop. Thanks in advance :)
Yes my son just turned 1 yrs old but I’m getting curious about how early can we start potty training? I heard somewhere that you can start before they turned 2 yrs old. Also, there are some daycares who prefer potty trained toddlers. Any tips, advice & recommendations about potty training? Thanks!
My 7month old was on breast milk and only pooped 2x a wk. which is ok for breast feed babies. But As of Saturday She has been strictly on formula and hasn’t 💩 yet. Wondering how long it will take for her to start 💩? I’ve tried some stuff but no luck in getting her to 💩. I think she needs to go because when I put her on the toilet to potty she tried to 💩 but Starts crying and wants to stand li... More
My son is doing great on day 4 of potty training...however he’s having trouble pulling down his undies in time, so we’ve been letting him go free! Any tips or tricks to help him with this? Also, just curious what parents do early on when leaving the house. Do you put them in undies? Pull ups? Travel potty? And pooping on the potty tips greatly appreciated as well! TIA!
I’ve started putting my 7 month old on the potty and she will pee almost every time and she has been pooping in the toilet the last 3 out of 4 times she has pooped. I feel like she actually is trying to go potty when I put her on the toilet. Has anyone done this early and what was you routine of time you took your baby to the potty? Would love some info on it?
Looking for any tips, tricks or advice... my very potty trained 4 year old has been having quite a few accidents lately. He gets too excited or focused on things and either forgets, or outright refuses to acknowledge that he has to go and then by the time it’s dire, there’s no time and he doesn’t make it to the bathroom. We’ll pick up on his mannerisms and recognize that he has to go and try to... More
My mom bought a really cute potty for my son. He’s going to be a year old pretty soon and I’ve occasionally started potty training him but I haven’t been consistent at it. Sometimes he goes poo very quietly and by the time I get him in the potty he’s already pood in his diaper. He doesn’t quite understand that potty is for poo yet probably cause I’m not very consistent with him and that’s on m... More
