Potty Training Tips

Anybody wanna start a tip thread with advice about potty training? BTDT moms chime in please! What's worked/working? Pullups vs. regular underwear? Night time training? Helping boys aim? Spill the beans on it all!

Caleigh was scared of the potty at first, she would "no, no, no" a lot when I put her down on it. It definitely took a lot of talking it through and practice runs before really trying it.

We found the classic "training" pants in 18 month size (for those with small fries) at KMart! They were the only ones who carried the smallest size. I also found Elmo undies there. Smile

Buy LOTS of undies! In our first day, we've gone through 5 pairs before afternoon nap time.

We're not doing rewards other than praise. I personally think it might set up expectations that are hard to break later on.

I haven't really started with Jamie yet, but I have helped, if not done it all myself with a lot of kids I have babysat for. We will be working with a kitchen timer.. every so many minutes in real underwear. I *hate* pull-ups. It goes back to working in daycares and having to take off a child's shoes to get their pull up off and the hate has grown over the years. We will start in the next few weeks. We are taking a break from big boy things after all the big things this week lol.

We will do * potty snacks*. It has worked wonderfully with daycare/babysitting kiddo's so I will use it with him too. Usually just a gummy bear or something.

We plan on getting him a potty after he turns two. So I have no tips or advice at all, but I would love to hear what has/hasn't worked for others. Great idea Beth!

I look forward to hearing everyone's advice on this topic!!
I feel like Olivia was more interested in the potty deal when she was ONE than she is now at TWO! I've heard not to push them if they're not ready, but wonder, how do I know if she's really ready??? Maybe I'm just holding back because I feel like I have NO clue what I'm doing when it comes to potty training!!

I have to keep a supply of whatever makes Mariah happy around near the potty. Because it will be enough to distract her so she sits and stays put until she is done. She's liked crayons,books, sometimes Playdough, today she liked her toy boat to hold onto. I usually get her to use it first thing in the morning and usually if she has to poop. Is she close to being fully trained? I doubt it. I don't feel that we are ready for the training pants stage yet. She can be pretty active and really want nothing to do with the potty most of the time.

M&M's!

Don't even worry about nighttime or naptime training at this point. And don't use pullups at night. It's more cost effective to use diapers and the pullups could leak.

Which is better, the potty seat that snaps on top of the regular toilet or their own potty chair?

We have this potty:
http://yahoo.shoptoit.ca/shop/product--catId_1002760__locale_en__productId_2704788.html
It's both a chair and a potty that fits on the toilet. But the music is freaking LOUD!!! And then you walk around with these stupid little songs in your head:rolleyes:

Great sticky! Dirol I really need to get Helaina potty trained! She is now 35 lbs. :eek: Size 6 diapers are leaking at night on her and I need to change her at in the middle of the night to avoid wet pajamas. Sad

We have NO clue either! We just jumped in anyways! Wink

The Huggies Pullup Video (order it free if you haven't already: http://www.pull-ups.com/na/special_offers.aspx ) was actually pretty helpful -- but we disregarded everything about the PullUps. It gave pretty early ages for starting -- from 18 to 24 months. I think if they can communicate the potty need, then you're good to go.

Here's the Huggies' take on signs they are ready:

Your child can stay dry for two hours at a time during the day or is dry after a nap.
Your child is uncomfortable with soiled diapers and wants them changed.
Your child shows increasing interest in the bathroom.
Your child’s b.m.’s are regular and predictable.
Your child wants to wear Big Kid® pants.
Your child can indicate by words, facial expression or body language that he or she
is about to go.
Your child can follow simple verbal directions.

If your child shows two or more of these signs, it’s a good indication that they’re ready to start potty training.

I don't know if that helps!

Thank you! I needed to hear from another mom that it's okay to wait on bedtime training!

We're using a potty chair (the First Years 3 in 1 comfy potty -- it does have the ring you can put on the big toilet, and it will work as a stepstool later on). I found it at Walmart for a reasonable price.

For us it works well because we could put them in places where Caleigh is most active. It means we don't have far to go when we stop playing to take a potty break. Caleigh's also pretty intimidated by the big potty. She doesn't like the noise of flushing yet. Plus she's a small fry and climbing up/down would be tough.

It does mean some extra cleaning, though. But not much.

p.s. No worries, Lisa! Smile

When we first started, we didn't worry about training pants or underwear, we just used (cloth) diapers or let him run around diaperless all day. We started using underwear when he had a pretty good grip on the idea of using the potty.

The waffle weave underwear don't really hold the pee any better than "regular" underwear, so I wouldn't bother with them. I'm glad we only bought two pair. He loves his Cars underwear and his firetruck underwear. He fits a 2T, which really surprised me since he's such a skinny kid.

Babylegs are great to keep their legs warm in the winter and not have to deal with pants every time you go to the bathroom.

We use a toilet seat that sits on the regular toilet. As for aim with boys, might I suggest being cautious when you kneel in front of them while they're peeing? I barely missed getting a faceful earlier this week when he shifted mid-stream. Lol I make sure it's pointed down when I sit him on the toilet. It's typically not a problem beyond that.

We started potty training when he was aware of the fact that he had just peed and started to want to be changed right away. I had no intention of potty training this early, but when he started showing signs of readiness I figured I'd go along with it. If he ended up not being ready, we'd have gone back to diapers, no big deal.

We don't do rewards other than verbal praise, and even that I try to limit, especially now that he's pretty good about pottying. I tried to make using the toilet a matter-of-fact part of our day, something else that we do along with brushing our teeth and washing our hands and whatnot. No big deal, it's just what we do. I didn't push the issue at first - if he said "done", I took him off, whether he had peed or not, to keep the toilet from becoming a negative experience.

I have specific times that we *always* go potty, and then I check with him at regular intervals during the rest of the day. He will sometimes let me know when he needs to pee, and he will sometimes be so engrossed in his play that he doesn't notice until it's too late, so I check with him to remind him to listen to what his body is telling him. Our "scheduled" potty times are morning, before meals, after drinks, before naps, before going out, and before bedtime.

They're still babies, accidents happen, it's no big deal, and making it a big deal is not likely to be constructive. When accidents happen here, I put him on the toilet, clean up, and remind him to let me know next time.

Keep a few books in the bathroom to read to them. Usually it's just a quick "on, pee, off", but sometimes I know he needs to go but he's taking a while and reading to him keeps him from getting antsy or from saying he's done before he really is.

This isn't a tip, but a question for the working BTDTs. How the heck did you manage potty training with your LO in daycare? I just would not wish that upon my dayhome lady. Am I supposed to just potty train her on weekends? That would seem so confusing for Claire! My dayhome lady does potty train her kids if the parents so wish, but Claire's poops are sometimes huge and messy. I can't imagine having to clean that up! Plus, I wouldn't be able to send her with enough dry pants! I'd be doing laundry every day after work! Maybe I should just wait until I'm on mat leave?!?! But, Claire seems ready now. I don't know what to do!!

Lisa, have your babysitter do it with you. You can not only potty train her on the weekends. You need the consistency. I have helped many many many moms potty train their children. She chose to care for children so she probably expects to help out. I would just flat out tell her that you are ready to start potty training Claire and would like her to help you out while she is at her house.

I agree with Angie -- let your daycare lady help you out! I'm sure she's used to messes! You might be surprised to find that even the huge, messy poops are easier to clean in underwear (and definitely less messy if it's in the potty!).

And I'm doing tons of laundry right now, but it is getting better. Just buy lots of underwear! We go through lots of pants, too. So my kid's clothes don't match for a good part of the day, but I don't care! The plus side to it is that I'm catching up on all sorts of laundry -- not just our clothes. So that I don't have to waste a load of laundry with a few pairs of undies and pants, I've been tossing in our bedding or whatever I can find. I'm about to pull down all our curtains to toss in. LOL!

I thought I would add that flushable wipes are awesome!

And here's our latest discovery -- asking if Caleigh has to go potty results in "no, no, no" about 75% or more of the time (yeah, we're still in the no, no, no stage!). Which then leads to much frustration when she pees in her pants 10 minutes later! We switched tactics to just taking breaks from what we're doing to say "let's go sit on the potty". She doesn't fight it at all when we do that. We're less frustrated and we're getting way fewer accidents.

I'm just thinking ahead to when we do start Potty training....
Anyone have a great carpet/furniture cleaner that they love?? Being in a new house, I foresee DH flipping out if we end up w/ puddles on our carpet or couch.....
Just want to be prepared!

We use Resolve foaming spray. It works well here for spills and such. You might invest in a steam cleaner if you are really worried. They are about $200 though, but I want one so bad!

I think I'm heading out to the store today to pick up a potty today. There are so many out there!!! AURGH! I don't remember much about potty training Tyler...my parents and my ILs did most of it. I know they had a seat on the big toilet for him, which I'm really not into right now.

I like the idea about the flushable wipes!!! We'll be using the Cheerio method - little boys pee in the potty, trying to aim for the Cheerios. LOL. Totally not into the sticker chart, though I know a lot of people are - I just know I won't be consistent with it, though I think Gray would love it.

My SIL just potty trained my 2.5 year old niece and she had a travel potty, which I thought was uber convenient. I'll have to find out which one they used.

I think we'll choose underwear and such later - I just want to have it around the house for now. I think he's ready - I'm not. LOL

LOL - I'm sure they will involve trucks, either construction or rescue. He may surprise me, though! I totally spent too much time at the library and then the orchard today - I don't know if I have it in me to head out to Target today or not. We'll see...I feel like maybe I should go with a list and just jump right in - wipes, training pants, potty and all. I'm so indecisive. NOT a good sign for this. Wink

So we went out and picked up a potty, pull ups and some regular underwear, along with some flushable wipes. Gray was so happy, singing the potty song and he was so proud. he was telling EVERYONE in the checkout line.

So we get it home and he's telling my DH all about it. We sit down to lunch - Gray didn't want to - he was excited about his potty. Next thing we know Gray pulled down his pants and sat on the potty. LOL! He then wanted his diaper off - so we stripped him down and next thing we knew he WENT PEE IN THE POTTY!!!

I know it's such a freakish thing and I wish it will be that easy from here on out - but I'm happy he at least knows what's going on. THAT make me smile. That and I got to see my baby's butt. Biggrin

Thought I'd share. Dirol

Yahoo so glad he's excited about it!

ETA: so a question, ladies...

when ds sits on the big potty (with the seat) and pees, he pees straight out onto the floor! As many times as I try to "tuck" it downward into the potty it's just not working. He will poop on the potty and says "listen!" when he hears it hit the water, but he can't hear the tinkle because it's going onto the floor instead! He doesn't want to sit on the little potty, advice??

Do you have that little cup thingy on the front? Otherwise either you or he will probably have to push it downward so he can hear it. Keep some cheerios or fruit loops in nearby and put them in before he goes (or as he's on it) and tell him to hit the circles - works both for sitting down or standing up. I think, anyway. HTH!

Aw, that's great Hannah! Way to go Gray!

Carrie, I find that DS needs to spread his legs a bit before he starts peeing. That seems to get everything pointed in the right direction for him and he's never missed. There was only once where he sneezed mid-pee and I almost got it in the face. Lol

Carrie, I love the "listen" commentary, haha:) Sounds like something Malik would do;)

Cynthia, I seriously LOL when I read about him sneezing and peeing. I am still chuckling:D

So just wondering for future reference.... is there a reason everyone is teaching their boys to go sitting down? Has anyone tried to let them go standing up? I know I still have a while before Ezra is anywhere near ready Biggrin But I was just curious.

Easier for me to catch poos when he just always sits. That way we can try for a poo every time he goes to the bathroom. Didn't figure it would be difficult to teach him how to stand when he gets older - here's a Cheerio, point and aim, clean up any mess you make. Sitting as the default also works well for whenever we're not at home and don't have a step-stool to stand on (since he definitely wouldn't be able to reach without one at this point).

to me it's just easier - if you have to have them hang out for a while why waiting for them to go, might as well have them sit. MUCH easier to get Gray to sit and read while waiting than standing. Just a consistency factor - always sit for now and then once we know he can go then we'll get him standing up.

Nothing new. we've been away from the house a lot and he's not even successful at home, so I'm not gonna dare try when we're out at a store or a friend's house Smile

I took a pic of him in his undies on Tues... I should upload it.

Carrie, that's actually where we had some of our recent progress -- at church or friends houses. It's funny because I think she liked checking out their bathrooms. Yesterday we were out at a friends house and she figured out which room was their bathroom and just wanted to go use it. But at home she really could care less about our big potty! :rolleyes:

Stores are a different thing, though because of all the noises like automatic flushers and such.

I don't think Drew recognizes that he has to pee. I dont' know if he doesn't know what pee is, but he always says "i pooped" Hmmm. never I peed.

Carrie, that's funny. Malik is the same way! He always says poop-poop for pee and everything. I don't think he knows what pee is either. I think I am going to have to do some naked potty bootcamp for him. I think once he sees the pee and learns the mechanics of his body he will start to understand better and we can hopefully have some success. Right now he asks to go sit on the potty AFTER he has peed or pooped.

Rachel - Hayden wants to go standing up but I won't let him. He's not big on using the potty anyway and hates the big toilet, he just has this obsession with wanting to stand to wee. I guess that's how he sees his Dad do it.

I think it is waay to hard to teach them to aim at this age. Plus, and this is waaaaaaaaaay tmi, he's not exactly gentle with it and sort of mashes it and points it in every direction. No way am I waiting to see which way the wee does go Smile

I've read that if you carry around a little stack of post-it notes and stick them over the sensor before she sits down, you can block the LED that triggers the flush.

Ok, a question. Do your shopping centres over there have parent's rooms in them. And, if so, do the parent's rooms have kid sized toilets? Every major shopping centre around here has parents rooms on every floor and in some major department stores. All the centres we go to have at least one room that has a kid sized toilet in it too (usually has a normal toilet and a mini version beside it.) Hayden is more likely to go to the toilet at a shopping centre then at home because he likes these 'baby' toilets.

The parents rooms themselves have change areas, play areas, a toilet that you can fit a pram in to, chairs and / or couch and cubicles if you want to bf in peace and privacy. They also have things like microwaves, etc, for heating bottles / food.

I don't know about anywhere else Gemma, but we DEFINITELY do not have those here! I consider myself when I can get the stroller into the larger wheel-chair accessible stall. I so wish we had little toilets here - they must be so cute Smile Sabrina is actually pretty good about going when we're at a store/restaurant/etc. because, like everyone else, she wants an excuse to check out the bathroom. At friend's/relatives' houses though she couldn't care less and if I don't put her in a diaper I end up cleaning up a mess and apologizing profusely to our hosts. At home she's pretty consistent about peeing on the potty but more often than not still tells me she's pooped after the fact.

Also, I have one of these that I keep in my diaper bag for when we're out - she totallly loves it and I love that it folds up.

Tina -- I've never seen a squishy one that folds up! That's so cool!

Pam -- I never carry anything at the store (I don't even have a purse), but I may have to start so I can do something like the post it trick. My nephew is 4 and still hates the auto flushers. He won't use a public restroom that has them!

Gemma -- I wish we had something like that! The best we have for "family" restrooms is an extra large single seater with it's own real door at a few stores. You can usually fit a cart in there. There's certainly no luxury features in it, though! But at the church nursery, we have a mini potty that Caleigh uses all the time. She loves it. Smile

In the city I lived in, the bigger malls had rooms like that (although I don't think I ever saw one with a microwave!) - kid-sized toilets, a small play area, a quiet place to nurse. It was nice and did come in handy a couple times. They definitely don't have them in the little town we're living in right now though, lol.

Tina, that folding toilet seat is so neat!!

I *think* Cadi may be ready to start potty training - the thing is, I'm SO not!! I can't imagine being able to be remotely consistent with a newborn. I actually forgot to change Cadi the other day for over 8hrs! :eek: But when I get her up for the day, or from naps, she's usually naked, but recently has started putting on her pjs or other bottoms with nothing underneath. She'll frequently take off her wet dipes and yesterday even her dirty diaper in the middle of the day. She's woken up from naps dry once in a while, and she does go quite a while between pees. She's interested in the big potty and even likes sitting on it once in a while, but has NO clue she's supposed to do anything on there lol. She's been in the bathroom with me all along (not interested these days lol) but I let her watch the pee come out once, and said "pee-pee"....LOL....she thought I said "baby"!!! So every time I pee she points at the toilet and goes "baby, yeah its the baby"!!! :rolleyes:

I just have no clue how to start. If I just put her in undies instead of diapers for the day, will she be confused/upset if I put her in dipes for outings/naps/nighttime? (I can see her doing that.) She does know when she's pooping, she hides under the kitchen table, but no idea on peeing.

My plan was to wait til Delaney was about 3mos old, to give me time to adjust to 2 kids and give Cadi a break between all the big changes (changed to toddler bed 3?mos ago, new house, new sister etc). I'm just wondering if I'm causing harm by waiting when she seems obviously interested/ready to start training. Thoughts?

Lisa, here's a couple of ideas:
Try starting with a "potty time" once or twice a day at a set time (before a meal, before bed, etc) and get that one time down. I think that would work for your schedule and teach Cadi the basics. Then once you have that schedule down, work on adding in more. Celebrate each time she stays dry between changes to reinforce the effort. Good luck!

I agree with Beth - we started by sitting on the potty before bath time - we were already in the bathroom and she was naked anyway ;).

If she happens to pee while she on the potty (happened "accidentally" for us a few times) then you can reinforce that that's what the potty is for. Don't stress about it - it's a long process anyways so whether you start now or in another few months I don't think it would make a big difference to Cadi. Good luck!

Hello ladies, this is the first time I've posted on this thread: I am now entering into this all important milestone of PT!

We've decided to see how Emily does before the baby arrives; granted we may experience some regression after the baby comes, but we'll deal with that if need be. We're using the "3 Day Potty Training" method. It pretty much has you get rid of all your diapers and addresses the naptime and nighttime routines all at once. Here is the website:

I will be starting this on Monday and see how she takes to it. We went out today and picked out some big girl panties to try and ease her into the idea come Monday. I am also preparing myself with some activities(crafts, baking, DVD's from the library she hasn't seen...) to keep us busy during the process. I've also got some stickers, M & M's, and other small rewards on hand when and if I need them.

The only thing I am needing is a travel potty chair. Pam, I saw your post with the two options. Did you decide on one? Did you have to get them online?

I am planning a roadtrip(not quite 2 hours on Friday) so I am thinking I'll need to get something rather quickly. I had this planned before we decided to go ahead with the PT.

I'll keep you posted and let you know how this method works for us! Wish us luck, hopefully I won't be the one eating all the M&M's!!!

Erica -- good luck! I'm sure you can get Emily pt-ed by the time the baby arrives. Smile

I checked out the site and I've heard about the timer method. People say it really works.
