Potty Training Your Baby From Age 3 Weeks

Potty training a baby traditionally starts between ages 2 and 3. However, there is a new technique which involves staring much earlier - at three weeks!

A new mom will quickly learn when baby is telling her that he is tired or hungry. Baby will also tell you when he is about to soil his diaper - or 'eliminate' in the jargon. The signs are usually a grunting and moving into a certain position. My son used to get this far away look on his face and he would be very noisy so that everyone around him knew what was on the way!

Many moms in America are now practicing 'elimination communication' whereby they watch baby for signs that he is ready to 'eliminate' and then dangle him over the toilet or a potty. The technique does require virtually constant observation of the baby but apparently baby soon learns the procedure and knows that if he grunts hard enough it saves him having to sit around with a diaper full of you-know-what!

The savings achieved through having to buy far fewer diapers are considerable, and of course you would be doing your bit to help the environment.

Potty training at the 'traditional' age of around 2-3 can be a real battle and a scary time for a kid. My daughter stubbornly refused to use either a potty or the toilet for weeks and finally succumbed only when we bribed her with the promise of a new dolly! Starting much earlier would spare you both but the technique does require constant attention and, for this reason, some experts 'pooh-pooh' the idea (sorry!) of starting potty training so early. Heather Welford of the National Childbirth Trust believes most parents will be too busy to watch baby all day and says 'I think it will always be something practiced by a minority of parents doing it for ideological reasons such as being closer to the baby or to help save the environment'. Two good reasons I would have thought.

 

Eight Tips For Potty Training Your Toddler

Getting your toddler to perform toileting independently is a welcome milestone for any parent. Few of us want to be changing diapers much past the child’s second birthday. However, children vary greatly in their adoption of the potty routine which is influenced by a child’s innate ability, aptitude and maturity. However, there several tips and techniques you can use to hasten the blessed day when your toddler says: “Mommy, I did potty by myself”.

Getting your toddler to perform toileting independently is a welcome milestone for any parent. Few of us want to be changing diapers much past the child’s second birthday. However, children vary greatly in their adoption of the potty routine which is influenced by a child’s innate ability, aptitude and maturity. However, there several tips and techniques you can use to hasten the blessed day when your toddler says: “Mommy, I did potty by myself”.

1) Get your child ready - explain to your child that it's time to do "pee-pee" and "poo-poo" in the potty. Promote the benefits of being trained such as no more diaper rash, interruptions for diaper changing, being clean and dry. Discuss training as an important stage of growing up.

2) Make it fun – first and foremost, make this a game. Children will naturally resist anything which is not framed as a fun learning experience. Use play, music, toys, and stories as part of the experience to keep the child from getting bored or distracted.

3) Create a ritual – try to make the experience repeatable so your child knows what to expect each time and gets into the routine of sitting and staying on the potty.

4) Use props – use of books, toys, videos and music all help create an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment which is so essential.

5) Time it right – Try repeating the process every hour for 2 to 4 minutes. If you can do this close to times your child usually has a bowel movement or urination, such as just after a meal, even better.

6) Be prepared - If you are traveling or away from home, bring a folding, plastic adapter ring that fits onto an adult toilet seat is useful. Extra tissue and wipes will be useful in bathrooms that are short on supplies.

7) Give praise – give you child social praise for sitting on the potty patiently or for staying dry. If the potty routine is successful, consider some reward (e.g. special prize, book or foods) that are especially valued.

8) Show your child how to clean up - demonstrate how to wash hands and dry hands on a towel.

Remember that training you child takes patience and perseverance. Staying on task and being consistent send an important message to your child. Above all, don’t let your child feel forced. It’s important to keep the whole experience fun and enjoyable for the best results.

 

Potty Training

You may fight each night with your mattress, and it might be the reason why you are not getting a good night of sleep. Many times, we don’t realize that this can be a problem for our children as well. To be fair, children are more resilient, and can even sleep on the floor without a lot of complaint and no obvious after effects. However, that does not mean you shouldn’t take the time to find a quality baby mattress that will ensure your child is comfortable.

Size is always important when buying a baby mattress, but you should think about a few other things as well. Some people like to get ones that have a slick cover on them, so that nighttime accidents will not go into the mattress. However, these can be a bit prickly to sleep on, and even the best of these can wear down. That means buying a new baby mattress before you are ready to get them a bigger sized bed. If you don’t want to slick coating on the mattress, you can buy sheets that will offer almost the same protection during the potty training years.

Thickness should be a consideration when buying a baby mattress. You want something that fits your crib or your toddler bed with little give on any side, including how it fits height wise. One of the reasons why children get hurt in cribs and beds is because the mattress was not thick enough, or was not wide enough. This happens when the mattress did not come with the bed, or had to be replaced for some reason. Take these things into account if you have to buy a new baby mattress for your child. Safety should be as important as comfort.

One last consideration when buying a baby mattress is something that you may not consider until after you have bought the mattress. You have to be able to find sheets that fit the bed securely so they do not come off the mattress while the child is sleeping. Children move around a lot, and that calls for a secure fitted sheet. Some sizes of baby mattress are hard to find sheets for, and that can make things difficult for you. You are better off finding a size that you know has sheets readily available where you regularly shop. If not, make sure you can find them online if you do choose an odd shape or size.
