    Some of the potty learning advise I’ve been given: Don’t push it or try to force it, introduce them to it early (take them to the baby with you, yeah like I could ever convince my toddler not to come in the bathroom with me!), and praise any step in the right direction. My little girl hasn’t shown much interesting in actually using the potty, but I’d sure love to win this giveaway!

    We celebrated every pee and every poop! We did stickers and rewards 🙂

    We made sitting on the toilet fun and did lots of reading!

    The advice I was given was to 1) keep a potty chair around & visible long before potty training starts 2) let the child start at his or her own time and 3) if you have to go back to diapers because it’s not working, do it. It’s okay to do a little at a time.

    My best potty training advice is: don’t push them or try to force them to potty train if they resist. They will train when they are ready, and not a minute before.

    i haven’t started potty training yet but i really would like some helpful tips! i have heard if you have a boy you can use cherrios in the toilet for the boys to aim at…haha. other than that i think introducing early may be helpful

    I use a little candy reward for my son when he goes on the potty, usually a skittle or m&m.

  • Sarah Hayes said...

    wait until the child is really ready to train to make it successful

    Dont push it. if theyr’e not ready, they’re not ready! im so glad I listened. We just started on the potty with my 3.5 yr old and hes doing pretty well . were having a harder time with when were out though and need some trainers!

  • Morgan E. said...

    Wait for them to initiate it. It will go much easier than forcing it on them.

  • martha said...

    Best advice was to take all advice as options to try instead of a laundry list of things that will work. I’m taking things slow and easy and hope it will work out.

    My favorite potty training tip was letting my girl go pants-less around the house. I could see when she started going and put her on the toilet so she could associate the two pretty quickly.

    My two year old is currently trying to potty train. Some days she just wants to sit on the potty all day and the next she wants nothing to do with it. I just go with what ever she decides, but I’m hoping she starts getting into a routine of using the potty everyday since next year in order to go to preschool she has to be potty trained.

  • Letha Adams-Mayer said...

    Advice I have been givin is that every child learns st their own pace and not to get discouraged.

  • Geneveigh Sewell said...

    My advice for potty training is to let the child lead the way. Don’t be forceful about the process and NEVER punish a child for having an accident.

    Oh man…I don’t have any tips about potty training…I need all the tips. I have 2.5 year old twin boys and they like the potty and have started telling us when they ARE pooping or peeing in their diapers. But sitting on the potty is more about playtime than business.

    I’ve learned to wait until baby shows signs of being interested in potty learning.

    Elimination communication – I hear that it helps potty train earlier, like around 18 months! When you think baby is going to pee or poop, hold baby over the toilet (or a potty). Then when its potty training time, baby won’t be afraid of going in the toilet 🙂

  • Amy Hall said...
    November 7, 2015 at 2:54 pm

    Best tip is to wait until they’re ready, secnod best is elimination communication-they’ll be ready sooner!

  • Betsy Williams said...

    Some advice that I received about potty training was to start putting my little one on the toilet at around a year to get her used to the idea. She is now 18 months and we almost never have poopy diapers anymore, so that is awesome…now to just get her to go pee in the potty all the time…

  • Kristina D said...

    I’m not quite to the potty training phase yet so I don’t have any advice to share, but I heard that just using cloth diapers is already a step in the direction of making it happen sooner!

  • Lela Beauchene said...

    I have 3 kids, 13, 7 & 18 months. With my first, I was new to motherhood and eager to reach milestones. I found that potty training happened on his schedule, when he was ready. Not on mine. With My daughter, I had a more laid back approach and it was a much smoother transition. Now with our baby girl, I am confident we will have a much better relationship with potty training. Remember that all babies are different and just because everyone else is doing something by a certain age doesn’t mean they all will. Take cues from your baby and let them lead (with your gentle persuasion) the way.

    One thing I heard was someone set the potty in the middle of the living room, and their child was potty trained in 2 days. I’m not sure about that, but we’ll see.

  • Holly B said...
    November 7, 2015 at 7:01 am

    Don’t put pressure on yourself or the child that they should be trained by a certain age. Every kid is different and there is no magical age by which they should have it figured out.

  • Andrea said...

    Give lots of drinks so there will be lots of opportunities to use the potty and lots of chances to celebrate!

    Keeping baby entertained and being patient on the potty. Introducing it and familarizing it.

    For little boys learning to pee standing up a puppy pad is a life saver.

  • Carrie Barron said...

    The thing I’ve been told that helps potty training be the most successful is to wait until the child is ready. Thanks for a great giveaway! My son is 22 months old and has started to recognize what is happening in his diaper. We’ll see how long it takes till he is ready.

  • Erica P. said...

    I’ve been told that CDing helps kiddos potty learn earlier since they’re more conscious of feeling wet. We’ll see if it’s true, I suppose!

  • Missy Farina said...

    Best thing I figured out for potty training was to let the child do it when they are ready, not when mommy is ready.

    When we were potty training my little sister we would take her to the bathroom often. We would also take her when we would go and sit her down on her little toilet

  • Cassandra Eastman said...
    November 6, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    Have patience and wait until they are ready. I also set a timer to remind myself to take them to the bathroom every 30 minutes for the first few days!

  • Jessica Funderburk said...

    Take your time with potty training and work from your child’s cues. If you fail, take a break for a few weeks and then try again. Children can change so much in just a month’s time.

  • Kayla Bergstrom said...
    November 6, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    The best advice I got was don’t rush it!

  • Melissa C. said...

    Find the right motivation! For our son, it was chocolate.

  • Kari Barone said...

    I placed both of my sons on the toilet at every diaper change from about 6 months, to help them understand that the toilet is where we go potty. They get comfortable with the toilet, it is normal, no issue with training.No stress,as I am training for familiarity not perfection.I would always praise them for any output.

    I’ve heard you should start potty training on a weekend when you’ll be home to take your babe to the potty whenever you can and try as often as you can during those first days

  • Amy L said...
    November 6, 2015 at 11:17 am

    The primary tip I’ve ever heard is: persistence!

  • marie L said...
    November 6, 2015 at 9:42 am

    I haven’t potty trained myself before, but I have worked at many daycares and if the child is rewarded and praised for going potty they seem to be more excited about going themselves and telling them they are a big girl or big boy!

  • Kim W. said...
    November 6, 2015 at 9:33 am

    I have heard that using cloth trainers and cloth diapers will help with potty training, because baby feels wet instead of disposables, which immediately wick the moisture away.

  • jodi Armstrong said...
    November 5, 2015 at 11:57 pm

    Wait to potty.train until they are ready and you aren’t too busy. Do it when u can spend a day or.two at.home vs on a day when u have to run around and aren’t sure where the closest bathroom is.

  • Nisa said...
    November 5, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    Patience, practice, and grace. Oh and lots of extra clothes/undies!

  • Leela R said...

    Wait until they are really ready or you will be fighting a loosing battle!

  • Sarah said...
    November 5, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    I’ve heard letting them run around naked all day works. Although, since we have carpet floors, that sounds like a scary idea to me!

    We are getting close to potty learning and this would be perfect to use.

  • Marissa H. said...
    November 5, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    Make sitting on the potty interesting. Have a book or toy that they only get to use on the potty. Also, make sure you have a place to sit, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in there lol!
