It’s potty training time in the Pilgrim household. I’m excited about ditching Annabelle’s diapers but I am not too thrilled about how fast this has come upon us. Where does the time go? I’ve received a lot of advice about how to prepare for potty training so I thought I’d share some tips with you. Here goes.
According to just about everyone, the first step in potty training is to get a potty chair and place it in the living room or play room, wherever your child spends the most time. We have done that and Annabelle has become familiar with it. We tell her that it is HER chair and we encourage her to sit on it like it’s a normal chair. We don’t force her to sit on it but we praise her when she does.
Apparently, it’s also a good idea to encourage her to sit on it while she is naked so she gets used to the idea of that. We’re working on it!
Our pediatrician gave me a tip at our last appointment. She said that I should show Annabelle my urine and bowel movements in the toilet and show her how to flush them. I have been doing this and she gets excited about pulling on the handle. Sometimes she runs in to the bathroom when she knows it is time for me to flush. There goes my privacy! Ha.
Everyone says that a good potty training pant is key and I agree. We have been using CVS Training Pants.
These training pants come customized with the absorbent protection that your little girl or little boy needs to stay dry. In an effort to prepare for potty training, we work together and practice pulling them on and off of her each day. She will be ready to do this on her own in no time!
I am currently researching potty training methods right now and we will be starting soon. I do believe that the preparations I have outlined in this post will make a difference. I will keep you posted!
