When the time comes to start your baby with potty training, you may be beside yourself with worry that your baby will never learn. That’s a feeling that most parents go through, so it isn’t something that you should be overwhelmed by. With the right attitude, the right new baby products, and the right techniques, you can make sure that potty training with your baby is a success and you’re not stuck changing dirty diapers for years and years.
Getting the Right Potty
One of the keys to successful potty training is making sure that you get the right potty to train baby with. A lot of parents don’t put a lot of thought into the potty choice and simply get what’s most affordable or what’s easily available. While availability and price should matter to you, you should also think about baby’s comfort. Your little one isn’t going to have an easy time potty training if the potty you’ve purchased is uncomfortable to sit on. Also, you might want to consider the idea of making potty training as fun as possible and getting a potty that’s made in bright colors or with a theme. Keep these things in mind when you’re shopping for new baby products and think about what will be best for your baby.
Although some parents never consider this, reading your child potty-related books can actually help with the process of potty training. If babies can easily learn about going to the bathroom and why it’s important to use a potty, then they’re likely to have a much easier time making the transition from diapers to using the potty on their own. When you’re shopping for new baby products, try looking for a few potty-related books that will come in handy during the potty training phase. You can rotate them throughout the books that you read to baby during bedtime, and after a while some of this information will start to sink in and be a big help to you when you’re potty training your little one.
Buying Big Girl or Big Boy Underwear
Sometimes, babies need incentive to go through the potty training process, and one of the things that you can use is big girl or bib boy underwear. If you let your baby pick out the underwear that he or she is going to wear instead of diapers, this may give your little one the incentive necessary to get on track with potty training. Give your baby free reign to pick out his or her underwear when you’re explaining the potty training process, and you could have a lot more success!
