Baby Step #1 - Get prepared! We have all the essentials we need, including a Nuby Potty Seat, Pull-ups and underwear from Old Navy.
Baby Step #2 - Make it fun! Whether it's singing a funny potty song or doing a little dance, always make it fun, not stressful. I just ordered Caillou potty time books from Amazon, because Baby C mimics everything Caillou does.
Baby Step #3 - Be a role model. Put the potty seat next to your toilet. Every time you use the bathroom, take your toddler with you and hopefully he/she will try it too. We also put Baby C's favorite stuffed animal on the potty for encouragement.
Baby Step #4 - Praise! Give your child praise for each baby step they accomplish. For Baby C, she would sit on the potty seat, but wouldn't let me pull down her pants. Last night, however, she sat on the potty without her pants! Hip, hip, hooray!
Baby Step #5 - Be patient! It might not happen overnight and there may be set backs. Remind yourself and your toddler, that it's okay.
Baby Step #6 - Pray! 23 The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. 24 Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.
Psalm 37: 23 - 24
As I mentioned above, we received the Nuby Potty Seat to help us get prepared for potty training. It is sized perfectly for Baby C. It's a stand-alone potty with a non-skid base, comfortable seat and removable basin that is easy to empty and clean. The potty seat is designed for little boys and girls to use it comfortably.
