Potty Training Caveats- Dont Start Too Soon

The First Reason: For one thing, child development experts are concerned that previous generations of parents were putting too much pressure on their children to potty train early. Children were often being punished for not learning to use the toilet.

Another Reason: Behind the delayed potty training are disposable diapers. Disposable diapers are more absorbent than cloth diapers and less uncomfortable for a child when soiled or wet. They are more convenient for parents who want to get away from the laundering of cloth diapers.

Remember, it is not recommended that you use negative reinforcements (verbally, punishments or spankings) when the child has an accident or wets the bed. Positive reinforcement as simple as a hug, sticker or praise for successful potty event is much more effective. Taking cues from your child will make the process of potty training go more smoothly for everyone.

If Potty Training Signs of Readiness Are Missing. Not every sign of readiness needs to be there. If you already notice a few signs, your child may be ready and willing to start using the potty.

After A Few Potty Training Attempts. It's wise to back off if your child still wants to resist using the toilet.

Praise Other Independence. In other areas of independence, such as feeding or dressing themselves, be sure to offer praises.

Trying Again After a Few Weeks or Months Go By. For some children, it might be best to wait if they're about to experience, or have experienced, a major disruption in their life. These disruptions may include events such as the birth of a new sibling, a move to a new home, or a divorce or death in the family. Such situations may disrupt the learning process and may even cause temporary setbacks.

Your Pediatrician Can Help With Potty Training. If any concerns come up before, during, or after toilet training, talk with your pediatrician. Often the problem or problems are minor and can be resolved quickly, but sometimes physical or emotional causes will require treatment. Your pediatrician's help, advice, and encouragement can help make toilet training easier. Also, your pediatrician is trained to identify and manage problems that are more serious.
