All moms are interested in when you need to start plantingon the pot. The unequivocal answer can not give neither the parents nor pediatricians, because everything has its time. In this case, it all depends on the baby: is he ready? Today, in the age of diapers, accustoming the child to the pot is not as a matter of principle, as it was 20-30 years ago, so some parents prefer not to hurry. However, sooner or later have to give up on diapers.
When to accustom to the pot
Some are beginning the process of habituation, whenthe child is six months. But baby, learn to ask for a pot at that age, you may lose the skill in the future. In most cases, the optimal age for toilet training is a period between 12 and 18 months. It was at this time the baby reaches the necessary level of development: it is not only fits well, but feels that he wants to use the toilet. His nervous system has matured, and the child is already able to control themselves, including their physiological needs.
Wait until the baby learns to walk and doelementary things. It makes sense to wait until then, until it becomes verbally express their wishes. The signal for that time to start training is when the child already can stay dry for two hours or more. Now, every two hours, you need to try to seat the child on the potty at 5-10-15 minutes, but no more.
As you can see, the time frame is reallywide, but we remember that everything is very individual. Even sexually: Statistics boys accustomed to the pot later than girls. Of great importance is the nature of the child, for example, the naughty child who loves to do things contrary to the parents to teach the potty will be very difficult.
How to choose a good pot
Going into the shop of children's clothes, you probablymarvel at how the diversity represented on the shelves of pots: colorful, different diameter, a variety of forms, even musical pots. In place of the metal pots, which were always cold, reached plastic pots.
Remember, the size of the pot must matchparameters of the child, do not buy the pot "for growth", to sit on such a pot the baby is not only uncomfortable, but also harmful. For very young children the optimal diameter pot - 12 cm and for older children - 15 cm Most pots are very light, and it is their plus, baby will be able to drag it from one place to another without difficulty.. The most convenient one pot, which has a handle and which has a stable base. Do not try to buy the intricate shape of the pot, it is sufficient if the pot is bright (it will help to interest the baby) with anatomical backrest. No need to buy a pot that looks like a toy, it will cause incorrect association in the child.
If young parents do not know how fastteach a child to the pot, it may be advisable for a long time not to delay the process of habituation. It all depends on how well you have chosen the time to develop this skill and on your behavior. Potty training - is a serious problem, which has an educational character. The main thing here is not to give up the slack, and not to make concessions. Frankly speaking - it is a real test for the mother. In addition, the success of education, as noted by researchers, depends on how much time do you spend on the whole child, the child is surrounded by caring, learn to walk on the pot quickly.
It is believed that the child accustomed to diapersmuch later he will ask for a pot, compared with a child who was doing his business in diapers. And all because he does not feel discomfort after urination. Even if for some time to stop using the diaper, the connection between urinating and discomfort after this will not immediately realized.
Ideally, of course, start to createbackground to easy acquisition of skills well before planting directly in the pot. We need to teach a child to cleanliness, to this end, wet panties change immediately. Then the baby will try to avoid walking in the wet, and to accustom the process will go faster.
Watch carefully for the child. Many of the children in any way change their behavior when the bladder or intestines filled. For example, some kids are starting to push, pull or pull their legs, while others fade, do "frightened" her eyes, as if listening to what's going on inside of them. This time you need to catch. As soon as you notice the steps leading up emptying, take the child and put on a pot. It is important that the baby felt the relationship, realizing what is the pot. Planted in the pot should be regularly, even if it does not lead to positive results: obligatory after eating, after sleep, as well as before and after the walk.
Sometimes it happens that the child does not want touse the pot on purpose, maybe he is not yet ready to become "adult". Try to find out why this is so, perhaps he does not like pot. Faced with the difficulties, do not lose your perseverance, and patience, continue to put the baby on the pot - at one point, your efforts will be rewarded.
When the "miracle" happened, sincerely rejoicethe success of your child - it's important. Say that it is well done. If the child did not work out, do not put it to him in guilt, in any case, do not yell at him, because he just has not learned what you need from it. Remember that there is value and genetics.
Yes, in addressing how to teach the child topot is not so simple. Positive results are bound to be replaced by setbacks, as with any learning process, but it is not important. What matters is that the learning process itself did not become an unpleasant duty for the child, does not cause stress. Scold the child is useless - it will only complicate matters. When the baby get bored sitting on the pot, and you will understand it right away, do not try to forcibly restrain him. During the learning process does not distract the baby toys, give focus. Conduct training in a relaxed atmosphere, you will not take your time, otherwise the child will feel your nervousness and your attempt is doomed to failure.
Look closely at the child, maybe he already givesyou know, he wanted to use the toilet, and you do not notice in the bustle of this. Noticed? Then immediately throw all his affairs and plant pot. Since then, as a child I realize that you need to walk on the pot should not use diapers, first day, and then at night, when it will occasionally wake up after a night's sleep dry. By the way, some parents make the mistake of trying in that whatever was to continue training and night. If your baby sleeps tight, then it does not need to wake up. To put on a pot of the night can only be the case if the child woke up alone and he is still dry.
Along with the training potty training begin and accompanying procedures, for example, to wash the pot after use, wash your hands.
Your child is now walking alone on the potty? Well, the next phase - the development of the toilet, usually occurs about 4 years. Good luck to you, the parents, in your arduous everyday work!
