Training your toddler how to use the bathroom is not an easy task. It will take patience and persistence on your part if you want it to work. It is harder for little ones to understand what you're talking about , because they are so young. We have to resort to visual instructions for them to understand what we're doing and saying to them. Some will catch on pretty fast and then you will have others that want to drag on forever; but you can't give up on them, or you will be changing pampers the rest of your and his or hers too.
If you have other children in the house this will help you, make your point to your toddler about using the bathroom. The plus for you and your toddler is letting the other children use the bathroom and then your toddler will get the hang of it; all you will be doing is replicating what you want your toddler to do. We all know kids imitate what they see being done, and try and do it themselves. So, if you have to use the bathroom, make a big issue of going to the bathroom in front of your toddler; and point to his or her bathroom chair and tell them they will have to use their own bathroom chair; when you're using the bathroom ,will also register in his or her mind that you're using it and they will want to duplicate the process. These are just a few tips to help you get started on going to bathroom training for you toddler.
Steps to take for your toddlers going to the bathroom training.:
1.Every morning without fail, take off his or her pamper,even though they might have used it already, and tell them they have to go the bathroom to pe-pe, take them to their pot chair and set them on it and tell them to pe pe; and if you can go you sit on the toilet and go too, so your toddler gets the idea. Let them sit there a while until you're positvely sure that, they aren't going to use it, before you take them off the chair.
2.Bring few of the other kids in to use the bathroom, so your toddler can see that everyone uses the bathroom;get him or her in habit of using the bathroom; watching the other kids use it, will help your toddler to want to use it too.
3. Talk to your toddler about using the bathroom, tell them they getting to big to be wearing pampers or what ever, tell them they're a big boy or girl and that can't pe, pe in he pamper anymore; and they have to come in there to their bathroom chair, take off the pamper and pee pee in the potty chair.
4.Like I said before you might have to even use the bathroom toilet yourself in order for them to adapt to the idea of going to the bathroom themselves, but any thing is worth if your toddler learns to go to the bathroom.
5. Always encourage them to go to the bathroom and not to do it in the pamper, tell them they're to big to be wetting their pamper,and bo-boing themselves. until this becomes a routine and , until he or she catches on asndstart going to the bathroom all on their own. They will start pulling off their own pamper or pull-ups or what they be wearing at the time that; they want to go and go the the bathroom on their-own.
Then you can celebrate not buying pampers anymore , but always remember to encourage your toddler and bolster their little egos by giving them compliments each time they succeed in using the bathroom ; until they get use to it and it becomes routine, just like eating dinner, make it a positive thing for you toddler to do every day.
