Let me tell you potty training a toddler it's not easy at all we tried potty training because we thought our daughter was ready should be talking to her diaper and saying PP a time she did make a P so we tried for three days and those three days and not go as I had planned so I decide let's just give it a break and then come back at it when we think she's ready which we thought she was back then anyways what are some tips I said how do you know that your toddler is ready to go and to be potty trained and how long does it take you to potty train your children
I did it with both my kids. My son is now eight and my daughter is three. She still wears pull-ups at bedtime because I'm still like, okay, maybe she might pee on herself or whatever, but she goes to the bathroom during the night.
My oldest was easy. I had him potty trained by like two and a half. So with my toddler, I'm just going to wait until he shows more signs. I'm not going to rush it because I've heard that rushing makes the process long.
Sounds like your baby girl was ready. It really just boiled down to consistency For my son he was like that as well. I Wanted to give up after a few days, but I talked to his daycare and they said for us to just keep on going And it took a few weeks
So I would say just be consistent even though it doesn't seem like you're getting anywhere be consistent and try not to go back to the diapers actually did a three day training potty training method if you wanna Google it
I definitely agree with just being consistent. Accidents are going to happen and regressions are a thing. I started potty training my oldest when like two months before her third birthday and I was like,
And she's done awesome since. I will say that it probably took her about two months to feel completely comfortable using the potty. Um, it took about a month for her to poop on the potty so I was cleaning up accidents all day.
Regardless of the accidents, patience is key. I know it's hard when you're constantly cleaning up pee or poop or whatever, but it's definitely worth it in the long run, especially if she's showing all the signs.
Okay, thank you. Yeah, I totally think she's starting to show all the signs. Um, I'm just like worrying because it might be a long process and like I work from home so probably training while I'm working is just it's not going to be doable but we'll work it.
I don't know, I'm still struggling with this. My daughter is almost five, which I know I'm probably gonna hate hate for, but I've tried. Since she was two, I've been actively trying to get her to potty break and tried all the secrets, read books, nothing has worked for me and it's just on her own time.
I see like kids they go at their own self pace too right so like I don't believe in like pressuring kids to do something that they don't want to do because it's obviously not going to help the situation.
So I kind of did the same thing. I kind of did it way too early, but then I went back and when he started like going to the bathroom in his pants and he knew and as soon as he would do it, he would say, ew, I peepee in my pants or
would go and hide and go to the bathroom like in his pants and then come out and said, Mom, I pooped in my pants, blah, blah, blah. Well, he did that like for a long time and it took forever, you know, for him to be comfortable on the toilet and.
That was really hard but I do recommend getting like a potty stepstool like with a seat to make them more comfortable. My son loves ours. I think we got it off of Amazon. It's like the potty seat and the little stepstool.
Okay, yeah lately my daughter's been like she'll pee and she'll go pee pee pee pee and like just acknowledging that she did pee So I'm just wondering if I should like start up again and try potty training her again if it's a good time or not.
As a mom of older kiddos, I think too many moms stress out over this. It's walk by one, talk by two, potty train by three. And I think we need to just stop pressuring our kids and just make a game out of it, make it more fun. That's my biggest thing.
