7 Simple Ways to Potty Train Your Toddler

Potty training is an important milestone in a toddler's life. It can be a daunting task for parents, but it doesn't have to be. With some patience and perseverance, you can successfully potty train your toddler. Here are 7 easy ways to get started:

  1. Introduce the Concept of Potty Training

Before you begin potty training, it's important to introduce the concept to your toddler. Talk to your child about using the potty and explain what it is for. You can also let them watch you or an older sibling use the bathroom to help them understand the process. One of our favorite books to introduce this concept is Potty Time by Caroline Jayne Church.

  1. Buy a Potty Chair

Invest in a potty chair that your child will feel comfortable sitting on. Place it in a convenient location, such as the bathroom or the child's bedroom, and encourage your child to use it regularly. You can even let them decorate it with stickers or markers to make it more appealing. The Baby Bjorn Potty Chair is a fantastic option and it comes in multiple colors too!

  1. Set a Routine

Establish a routine for using the potty. Take your child to the potty chair at regular intervals, such as every 30 minutes, and encourage them to use it. You can also take them to the potty chair after meals, before naptime, and before bedtime. Why not try creating potty time reminders by using the Hubble Eclipse+ Soother? The built-in sleep trainer can be programmed to create a reminder of when it is potty time.

  1. Use Positive Reinforcement

Positive reinforcement is key to successful potty training. Praise your child when they use the potty chair and offer them a small reward, such as a sticker or a piece of candy. This will help motivate them to continue using the potty.

  1. Let Your Child Choose Their Underwear

Letting your child choose their own underwear can make them more excited about potty training. Take them to the store and let them pick out their favorite designs or characters. This will give them a sense of ownership over the process and make them more invested in it.

  1. Be Patient

Potty training can take time, so be patient with your child. Don't get frustrated if they have accidents or if progress is slow. Keep encouraging them and offering positive reinforcement, and eventually, they will get the hang of it.

  1. Don't Rush It

Finally, don't rush the process. Every child is different, and some may take longer to potty train than others. It's important to let your child take the lead and not push them too hard. If they're not ready, it's okay to take a break and try again later.

In conclusion, potty training can be a challenging task, but with these 7 easy ways, you can help your toddler successfully transition to using the toilet. Remember to introduce the concept, buy a potty chair, set a routine, use positive reinforcement, let your child choose their underwear, be patient, and don't rush it. With some patience and persistence, you'll be celebrating your toddler's potty-training success in no time.
