5 Tips to Potty-Train Your Toddler

Childhood Development

Potty training your toddler is very beneficial. You get to save diaper money, you get to save diapers and you get total bragging rights that your toddler is potty trained. Here are 5 tips to potty train your toddler.

Give Rewards


Toddlers will do anything if there is a reward. When you offer them a good reward for sitting on the toilet they will happily oblige. You can use this to your advantage by giving them treats when they successful urinate or poo.

Figure Out Why They Won’t Go


Sometimes a toddler just doesn’t want to sit on the toilet because they are scared. It could be the most bizarre reasons but you need to find out what it is. Then you must comfort them. For example, they could be scared of falling in and getting flushed away. Ensure them that they won’t fall in because you’re holding them and they will never be flushed away.

Determine If They Constipate


Sometimes a child isn’t ready to poo because they are constipating. When you notice that their poo is in little pellets then that means they aren’t ready. You need to wait until they are pooing properly. A sign of good bowel movement is when they let out mushy poo.

Giving Words of Encouragement


Words can mean a lot to a toddler. When you tell your toddler that it’s okay and you are there, they will feel safe and at ease. Encourage them to let it out and you are there to support them. Hold their hand if need be.

Have Them Eat Well


When you are feeding your toddler chips, crackers, and nuggets, you are increasing their chances to constipate. Eating such highly processed foods is the source to constipation. Instead you should feed them veggies and fruits. If they don’t eat veggies or fruits, sneak it in their meals.

    2 year old.. Why so late..? by the time my little brother and I were 18months, my mother had already potty train us.. I was 13 years when my little sister was born and it was about the same age for her.. It’s embarrassing and unacceptable to have your kids wear diapers and not be potty train by the time they can walk.. If a 13 year old can help train a baby to potty train, there is no excuse for any parent to say they can’t.
