5 Signs your toddler is ready to be potty trained


Hi, I’m Stacey from Stacey Jane’s Nappy Cakes
Over the next couple of minutes I wanted to talk about the 5 Signs your child is ready
to be toilet trained. Taking care of your little one is something
you would not trade for anything in this world. Watching them sail through their milestones
is a joy despite the challenges. As soon as your child turns about 18 months
old it is time for yet another challenge: Is your child ready to be toilet trained? There is really no usual age at which a toddler
starts showing signs of readiness for toilet training. It can be anywhere between 18 months and three
years. If you are wondering if they are ready for
toilet training, here are some signs to indicate readiness. 1. A dry nappy or diaper for hours It is a sign they can already control their
well-developed bladder. Predictable bowel schedule
This means you can predict the time when they are most likely to poo and make them sit on
their potty trainer. 3. Signaling their desire to pee or poo Your tot’s attempt to communicate (verbally
or non-verbally) is a manifestation of their consciousness of their body function. The awareness will make them stop what they
are doing to tell you they are going to pee or poo. Use of words to mean “defecate” and “urinate”
As these words are a “mouthful,” and are words we don’t commonly use they may use some
jargon that is easy to say and remember, such as “poo” and “pee.” 5. The ability to pull up and down their own
pants This is a physical sign that they are ready
to do what’s basic when “nature calls.” Once your toddler is ready for toilet training,
they will bask in their independence and achievement. So, give them the space to try the toilet
on their own with some guidance and don’t forget to praise them. As your child becomes a little more independent,
you too can better enjoy parenthood with a toilet trained toddler in the house. If you like this video give it a thumbs up! Comment below and hit and subscribe button

  1. At what age did your child start potty training. I have boys so they were around 3 to 3.5 years old when we began. Neither of them want to know about it before this, not even with rewards!🙈
