Potty training can feel like such a pain in the behind (pun intended!) but it doesn't need to be. I have four kids and each one has been so different when it comes to eliminating diapers and switching to big girl or boy panties.
I thought for sure that I would have all my kids potty trained at eighteen months, then when I had my first child and she refused to potty train, I realized that maybe I didn't know much about potty training.
As the years went on, I have taken ideas and tricks from my friends and off the internet and have put them to the test with my own kids.
Potty Training Tricks!
1. The first thing that we found to be successful and has helped make the transition is reading books about going to the potty and getting them familiar with what is involved with switching from diapers to undies! This is such a fun and exciting time, and what better then to cuddle up and read a book!
2. Switching to Pampers Easy Ups Training Pants so they can easily pull them up and down on their own. Kids thrive when they get to make their own choices and do things on their own. My kids love going to the store and picking out their very own training pants. It perks their interest and makes them way more excited to start.
3. Make sure they have a stool to rest their feet on so they don't get tired and to help them balance while sitting down. If it's not comfortable for them they may get discouraged.
4. Lastly, get a potty seat that is comfortable and has handles. Handles allows them to get on and off easily.
Having the right tools and waiting until your child is ready can make potty training a lot less stressful and a lot more fun for you and your kids.
