As moms, we put a lot of stress on both ourselves and our kids when it comes to potty training. Some babies are ready to use the potty well before their second birthday. Others pass three and are still content to run around in their diapers. If our children are on the later end of the spectrum, we start sweating it—especially as cloth moms. Isn’t cloth diapering supposed to mean that they potty train earlier? Am I doing something wrong if my baby doesn’t potty train as soon as everyone else’s? If you’re inching toward potty training with your toddler, don’t despair! There are plenty of ways to make it easier on both you and your little one.
Through this series, we’re going to look at various ways to make your potty training journey a bit easier…
- To begin, we have a simple reminder not to stress through this process. Your little one will complete this journey in their own timing. You’ve got this!
- In Part 2, we’re going to look at the essentials for potty training cloth-diapered little ones.
- And finally, in Part 3, we’re going to help you choose the right cloth trainer for you and your little one!
Dont stress… you’ve got this!
Stressing about potty training won’t help you nor your toddler through the process. In many cases, the more stressful you make it, the more difficult it will be for your little one to get the hang of things!
Remember that each child hits developmental milestones differently. I had one cloth-diapered little one who was completely potty trained at 2.5 and another one who, at a little over 3, still won’t poop in the potty. Simply take one day at a time and be patient with your little one.
Keep in mind that while you might still be washing and stuffing diapers, at least you aren’t throwing money away every time your little one goes to the bathroom! When they’re ready, you’ll both know. You’ve got this!
