How to teach a child to potty?


There are several opinions about pot. One – to nine-the age of the child on the potty not be planted, and the second is that once the child learns to sit up by himself, drop him on the potty for a minute to get used to. In both cases, practice shows that not all kids to have time to get used to ask for a pot.

It is better to start to put a child on the potty after waking up (if he gets up dry) and after 15-20 minutes after eating. You should not drop off your child on the potty too often, and especially after he had already wet my pants.

Night sits on the potty, breaking the dream, as a rule, useless. Better to gently change the sheet and sliders, protecting your baby sleep.

Longer than 5 minutes to keep your child on the potty should not be, better through some time to sit him on the potty again.

When to start to teach a child to potty?

The main role in this is not age, but urbanpassage and physical development of the child. He is determined to build skills:

the child is able to walk, bend.

can pick up small objects.

Important signs of maturation of the nervous system:

the child can stay dry for two hours or wakes up dry after NAP.

Goes on, at one and the same time.

feels uncomfortable in wet pants and may Express a desire to change them.

Sometimes the child’s behavior, you may determine that now is the time of urination or defecation (the kid froze, stopped playing, got cranky, etc.).

Take a rule to drop the child on the potty before bedtime and immediately after it, after a while after feeding, before and after walking, before and after NAP and before bathing. Be planted no more than 3-5 min.

Attempt to land more frequently may result in the fact that the child will sit on potty for a good part of the day ( because the frequency of urination in children 10 -15 times a day).

To begin, your only task is to demonstrate to the child the benefits of dryness and cleanliness.

If the child still does not know how to sit, you can hold it over a basin. Repetitive idiomaticheskie expression “pee” and “Ah” contribute to the formation of conditioned reflex skill. You should not hold the baby over the sink or tub, because you not only teach your child to write, but also instill skills of hygiene. Do not turn on the water in a “crucial moment”, the baby may experience unnecessary conditional reflex, which links the need to pee and the sound of water.

Never scold a child if he missed it, but if it happened, even accidentally – do not forget to praise.

For some children, more understandable personal example, of course, the model must correspond to the gender of the child.

In two and a half years, the child strives to do everything as an adult, then they are easier to teach to walk into an adult toilet, not the potty. Then you should buy a child seat on the toilet and a bench, so that the child himself climbed up on it.

Never force the child to sit on potty pricev his desires. Do not scold the child if he is after a series of successful attempts started writing again in my pants or the bed. Treat calmly and reassure the child. Maybe you started too early.

If you use diapers, please be prepared to use them up to three years, because the child will be hard to get used to the pot.

When you should offer the child the potty?

During the day you repeatedly advise the child to sit on the potty (because sometimes there are situations when the child is playing, gets carried away and remember the pot is too late). Definitely need to go to the potty on a small need before bedtime.

In “relations” with pot as recommended regularity, as in eating, in the alternation of sleep and wakefulness, etc. Once you are surprised to notice that your toddler is without influence on your part goes on the potty at about the same time. Usually after eating children get the urge for a bowel movement. Noticing the time, now you hold the pot away.

The regularity in this case is set as if by itself. You have only a small correction: the time of going on the potty, try to move to a morning – after Breakfast. This skill is very useful to the child in life. For example, when he is a schoolboy: he will solve their “problems” at home, and during class he will not have “problems”.

From what time you can teach a child to use the toilet for adults?

Until about the age of three the child can use the potty. Some children after two years begin to visit the toilet for adults. Gaining a new skill several makes life easier for mom.

Look in hardware stores special plastic of the seat. This simple device is very user-friendly. The child can place the seat on the toilet, only to climb on it he can be difficult – a tall; in order to facilitate the ascent, you need to keep in the toilet a small bench.

Encourage your child to use toilet paper. Avoid using known for these purposes any other paper, particularly newsprint, which is too coarse (and ink poisonous). Of course, years to three, to four, the child will not be able to wipe yourself clean, so you each will help (he will call), but after four years let the child tries to do everything himself.

Very well, if every time after using the toilet, the child will be washed away. No matter how carefully you do wipe, and the remnants of feces with the outlet remain. After an hour or two they can start to irritate the skin; this causes itching, discomfort, the child will start to get nervous. None of this will happen if you do not be lazy time to wash away the child, and sometimes to lubricate the skin between yagodichkami baby cream or vaseline oil. Smart people in such cases, joking: “love care Appliances”.

After about of year you teach a child to walk independently to pee on the potty. Given that science is not at once and not easy, because the child is still small. But you’re working methodically: would you put your baby on the potty every hour and explain what they want. The child will understand, but he and the memory still short and small bladder, from time to time there are “misunderstandings”. You remain persistent, consistent and calm.

The child grows, and you gradually increase the interval: put him on the potty any more through every hour and half hour. Due to this tactic is the fact that the volume of the bladder in a child increases with age. Every time before going to sleep the child needs to urinate. Even if he refuses, you must insist. Generally you should raise the child so that he is treated with attention and respect to all that you say. This is an important element of discipline. If something you ordered, we must insist on the performance. And in any case not to go back down. And if you have to cancel the order, should be given to cancel a convincing rationale. Otherwise, the child will develop an opinion that you sometimes do not know what you are saying, and it will relate to your words accordingly.

Over time the child learns to get up at night to potty and will go up one to two times per night. You should put him in the pot is always on one place, not far from the crib. Because at night, the child goes on the potty half asleep and usually in the dark. Great would be his disappointment if the pot will not be in place.
