How to teach a child to the pot?

One of the important stages of growing up a baby becomes potty training. It seems to many parents that this is a rather complicated and long process. In fact, everything will happen much easier if mother prepares for this important and responsible event, in time getting acquainted with the necessary information.

At what age to begin to teach the pot

The debate about how old and how to teach a child to the pot has been going on for a long time. Some believe that as soon as the baby begins to sit, he will be able to start learning to do his things in the pot. Others, not unreasonably, believe that by almost two years all babies are accustomed to the pot, and to spend time and energy on what will happen by itself is silly. By the age of two, children begin to be interested in the processes that take place in their intestines and bladder. The child begins to learn to control their work, and, therefore, it will be easier for him to understand what is expected of him.

According to research by American scientists, it was concluded that by the age of two years about 25% of children learn to potby the age of 2 years and 3 months - 52%, by 2 years and 6 months already 86%, and by 3 years, almost all babies use the pot confidently. But in advance it should be noted that all tots are very different and each child requires a personal approach. For example, capricious children should not be taught to the pot too soon, it may take a little time, and the kid will take a more active interest in learning.

Family budget also plays a decisive role in this issue. If there is not enough free money in the family for disposable diapers, the child will be taught toilet-related matters, most likely from an early age.

Common parental errors

As a rule, it is about the same time, you only need to be vigilant and disembark the baby in due time. Sometimes the kids are taught to do the pot only for a big one, and they still need to keep their little needs in their pants or vice versa. This is also normal and no need to reproach the kid for it. Every day, patiently remind the crumbs of the need to do all the work on the pot and soon all your efforts will be rewarded.

If the baby does not want to sit on the pot, he behaves whimsically or, worse, screams - no need to force him.Otherwise, he may begin to perceive the pot trip as a punishment.

Until this age, you can only land for a short time to familiarize yourself with this new subject.

Having done the pot a few times, they will know that raw pants are unpleasant, and after the pot everything is fine. Instead of a long and tedious addiction, everything will happen in a matter of days.

  • oval-shaped - they have a back, and in front there is a projection (anatomical),
  • chairs - in the form of a chair, in which a pot or just a container is built in,
  • Transformers - a model for all ages, easy to understand.
