The While Baby is Growing Episode:3 "9-12 M"

Toilet Training

When you follow the signs in our article on your baby, toilet training becomes much easier, successful, short term.

We listen to many stories from our mothers; 30 years ago, each child received a full toilet habit before or after the first birthday. But the ones trained here are not babies, but their mothers. Pooping is easy to control. This training is easier for babies who give regular signs. The real challenge is urine control. Of course, some children cry before wetting their diapers; to capture this moment is a small victory. Because collaboration is difficult and the child is not aware of what he is doing. Events are developing as reflexes. These trials often fail.

When you watch the following signs on your baby, toilet training becomes much easier, successful, short-term. Your baby should be aware of the pooping (bowel movements, toilet), should able to stay dry for 2-3 hours, and also able to self dressed and undressed for toilet, should understand the rules and be able to comply. Just because he's not ready for a potty doesn't mean he can't meet him:

Let Your Baby Know What He/she's Doing: It's very easy to understand that the baby's bowel movements begin; crouches, squeezes himself, stops playing, blushes. When you catch the baby, try to tell him what he did, but use the same word to describe it. Then show him the dirty rag when you cleanse him. It is impossible to understand visually that the child will urinate. While in the bathroom or changing the diaper he/she might urinate, draw attention to what he /she is doing and use the same word every time.

Make Sure She/He Sees What You Do: Kids are perfect imitators. In this case, while you are in the toilet, invite him in instead of throwing him out, and tell him/her what you are doing. If you have a older child and are not bored by the audience, you can also include him/her. Tell your baby that the mother, the father, the big brother, the sisters go to the potty, and that he will leave when he is older. If your baby not afraid of sound, make him/her flush the toilet and watch tohether as everything goes with water. If she/he seems eager to sit on her own on a toilet, take her/him a pot and make her try. But don't leave him/her alone, and when yshe/he’s bored, remove him/her. Thus, he/she will be introduced to toilet with his own will and will not be afraid.

Make Your Baby Feel Good about what she/he brings out: Positive personal-image in every kind of training is very important for success. So don't make any moves to make your child hate him/her when he/she does. Try to avoid dissatisfied facial expressions when cleaning his/her diapers

When your child is curious at the end of the first year, make him closer to potty. Never force him into a pot, just encourage him, but wait until he's completely ready. It will probably be ready for serious training towards the 2nd or 3rd birthday.

One Small Note: One of the reasons why the new generation is lazy about toilet training is the use of ready-made cloth. These miraculous cloths can be so absorbent that they do not feel that the babies are wetting the diaper because the skin remains dry. Therefore, it has no effort to get rid of the diaper as opposed to the effort of getting rid of the wet cloth seen in the children of previous generations.
