Stress Free Potty Training Tips and Tricks

The first thing to consider if if you little on is ready to potty train. Check out my other video for the signs your child is ready to potty train. Once your kiddo is ready check out this list of my stress free potty training tips!

  1. Gather the Right Supplies-Use a potty training chair or seat, buy some disposable wipes, set aside time to work on potty training. It does require a bit of patience and continued effort. If you are able to, I recommend planning to use a long weekend to start potty training!
  2. Read a Book– Read stories to you kid so they understand the concept of potty training before they even begin!
  3. Set a Schedule– Set a time for every 20-30 minutes. When the timer goes off take your little one to the potty.
  4. Period of Nakedness– This may sound odd, but spend the first few days of potty training where you child only wears a shirt. We want to break their lifelong habit of using their diapers and we want to remove anything that feels like a diaper. It may be beneficial to block off parts of the house to avoid accidents all over your house! When to Use Pull-Ups- After your child begins to successfully use the potty you can introduce big boy underwear or pull-up back. This ensure they don’t associate pull-ups as diapers and they will continue to use the potty.
  5. Celebrate!– Every time a child goes on the potty, reward them! Use skittles or screen time or whatever motivates them as a reward.
  6. Avoid the Stand and Pee– If you are potty training a boy, don’t introduce the stand and pee too soon. Have them master using the potty sitting down first! You can use cheerios as target practice whenever you do start the standing to pee.
  7. Make Potty Training Fun– Use books and songs to engage your child in potty training and keep them motivated.
  8. Model Potty Training– Have your kid use their favorite animals to pretend potty training.
