Parttime Potty User

Some toddlers are happy to use the potty when prompted but don’t ask to go on their own. If your child fits this description, rest assured she is well on her way to becoming potty-trained.

To convince her to use the potty all the time, you may wish to give her a choice of wearing a diaper or “big kid” underwear to see if she’ll extend her preference for the potty when wearing underwear.

Frequent reminders during the day to try the potty and interesting books to look at while he’s there will encourage her to become a full-time potty user.

Toilet Training

Wondering if you can start potty training your toddler? All children develop differently and are ready for toilet training at different times. While potty training at 12-13 months is usually too early, in most cases, some children do train as early as 18 months. Most are trained by age 3.

The key is readiness. If a child isn’t ready, potty training can be very frustrating for both of you. A child may be ready if:

  • He is telling you in his own way that he needs to go to the bathroom.
  • She can pull her underpants up and down.
  • He can sit and stand well.
  • She can sleep through the night without soiling a diaper or get through a nap without wetting a diaper.
