Many experts will say that when the child is ready, he will naturally get rid of the diapers and go to the toilet on his own.
On average, girls are 29 months old and learn to go to the toilet. The boys are 31 months old.
Experts say that children between 18 and 30 months old have the ability to learn to use their own toilets. Although the age is different, 98% of children can learn before they are 3 years old.
Here are some tips for training your child to go to the bathroom:
1. Pay attention to whether the child is ready for
more than two hours, the diapers are not wet, or take a nap, get up in the morning without getting wet, will have a bowel movement at the expected time every day, a large amount of urine Then the child may be ready to train.
"Behavior, children who want to change diapers, or want to wear underwear, they want to be a 'big boy' or 'big girl', and children love independence."
2. Direct use of the toilet
There are children who think that the adult toilet is terrible, and the parents may use the pot as an adaptation period. However, if the child volunteers to try to use the toilet directly, do it.
3. The urine is not the same.
Some children are afraid to wash away the stool. Parents should be patient and try to explain the biological reasons - things that the body does not want.
4. Resting when needed When
faced with constipation, the child will be afraid of toilet training. You can stop for a while and then retrain. "Give your child more water, eat more red cabbage, apricots, figs and corn."
5. Coordination timetable
To understand the child's physical time to adapt, pay attention to the shortest trip. Parents "for safety" will use paper diapers for their children, but this will only confuse them.
6. Don't stop asking your child if you want to urinate.
This is a question frequently asked by parents, but experts say that asking questions will prevent them from thinking about themselves and whether they need to go to the bathroom.
7. Wash your hands after going to the toilet.
Remind the importance of washing your hands after urinating. Simply put: Don't want bacteria to get into your mouth and make your stomach uncomfortable. The 2-year-old child understands this concept and avoids “carrying” the child to clean his hands and let them know that the parents trust the child to do the right thing.
8. Wiping the butt
Parents may help the child wipe the butt to ensure that it is really clean. However, doing so will delay their study of independence and self-care. "Teach your girls to wipe front to back, and the boys will move from the back until the toilet paper is clean."
9. Accidents will happen
If the underwear is stained with urination, it should be treated calmly and treated as a small matter. "Don't let your child feel embarrassed or uncomfortable."
10. Falling asleep
Keeping dry during the day is not the same as getting it at night. "Physiology, sleep habits, and temper are all different. Parents can use diapers before going to bed until the child is stable and dry."
