Mom Monday Episode #6 Potty Training.

It’s official. I hate potty training and I want to give up!

I’ve reached potty training and I’ve tried the naked approach, the 3 day approach, the record charts, stickers, big boy toilet, potty in every room. I’m convinced his not ready, because his so surprised when it occurs. We’ve tried to get him to wait and his wont. he just strips off.

Here is a summary of what’s not worked for us.

Naked 3 day Approach

When your child wakes up in the morning, change his soggy diaper and bid farewell. Have your kid throw the diaper out and say “bye-bye.”

Change your kid into one of the oversized T-shirts you got and explain there is no diaper to catch the pee-pee or poop, so he has to put it in the potty. Give your kid breakfast and an extra drink. Afterwards, lead your little one to the potty. It should be a successful trip after all those liquids. Go on with the day, but remember, no leaving the house for three days. Play, read, colour and watch cartoons. Have a constant  cup of water at your kid’s reach. Just like crate-training a puppy, walk your child to the potty every x amount of minutes, all day long for three days.

Cut off all liquids and snacks after dinner. Complete one final potty mission before bed. Wake your kid up halfway through the night to pee. (Yes, set an alarm.) Repeat for the next two days. Don’t get upset about accidents. They’re not a big deal. Don’t react.

Wait and Pee (child led)

You encourage and praise your child to use the potty when you see the right signals, however you don’t insist on it. The idea being that he will eventually get it, hopefully before his leaves home 😉

The Potty Planner

You allocate a week at home, where you’re whole life evolves around the potty schedule, by navigating the potty at regular intervals.

Training or Pull-up Pants

A more expensive nappy that’s suppose to help develop the sensation of wetness without all the mess.

Reward Chart

Simply reward your child with something small, like a sticker or song every-time he achieves it.

Big boy Pants

Say bye-bye to the nappies and just go for it. It’s definitely the messiest approach, but its the easiest way for them to feel the real thing.

Then of course there’s just the wait option. He’ll do it eventually. If you know of any other method, tips ,tricks, hacks. At this point I’ll take any advice. Drop a comment below I’d love to hear from you.

  5. After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts
