It’s been a little over a month now that our daughter stopped using her “training potty” and has directly moved onto the big potty!!!
It definitely hasn’t been an easy experience potty training a one-year-old but for her being so young she is doing amazing. Since Baby V can’t talk that much we have arranged a schedule of when we set her on the potty. Which seems to be working wonders, she goes first thing in the morning, after she has a drink and every 30mins to an hour.
She still goes in her pull-ups but it’s less and less each day/week. Hubby and I are so blessed to have such an intelligent toddler. While we were on vacation we did bring her “little potty” but ended up not evening using it. Dustin had set her on the big potty, and she went with no problems. When we got back, she refused to go on her little one so we ditched it for the big toilet and she‘s been using that ever since.
Tips for potty training a young child
- Be Patient.
- Praise like crazy
- Give stickers.
- I give the baby a special treat when she does something new.
- Look for any signs (hiding, making faces, walking to the bathroom, &, etc.)
Getting a smaller toilet seat for the child is what works best, most newer little potties have them now which is awesome.
