Who said that Potty Training was hard? I mean seriously, we truly have been Blessed. This toddler stage for us was truly effortless. Literally... Then again, my husband and I don't even recall our son JeNoah being a baby. It's funny how that happens.
It was as if he woke up one morning and was like "I am going to use the potty today!". It happened like what seemed that quickly. I didn't know it at the time, when I bought my last case of diapers it was the LAST case. I was happy and yet sad at the same time. Some toddlers are not so simple to train, I have some great tips for dealing with Potty Training Resistance.
So once my husband and I realized that he was ready we let the FUN begin. Don't get all stressed about potty training. Just try to relax and have fun with it. Here are some steps to make the transition fast and easy.
Tips to help make Potty Training Easier.
Okay now that we have that task mastered. YEAH!!! Unfortunately, having a bowl movement was another issue. I know moms, this is the yucky part about potty training. It's not going to be as bad as you think.
If your Toddler has trouble having a bowl movement on the potty.
So after about a month using all of my methods, my son went on the big potty with no problem. He would go in the bathroom, shut the door and climb up on the potty and go, all by himself. It was so funny, he looked like a grown man. He would then come and tell me or my husband so we could help wash his hands and wipe if needed.
Once you finally have the bowel movements also mastered, it is time to tackle the nap and nighttime potty issues. This may take some time. It really depends on the toddler. You never know. Here are the tips that I used and I hope they work for you.
Nap Time Potty Training Tips.
My son only napped for two hours or less, so he was fine when I used these methods. Again you are going to have accidents. If it would make you more comfortable, you could purchase plastic covers for their mattress.( You can find these in most department stores.) Nighttime is different because of course they sleep longer. So here are some methods that I believe work for night time.
