Potty Training Girls vs. Boys
I'm Dr. Ari Brown. Today, we're talking about the differences in potty training girls and boys. On average, kids learn how to use the potty between ages 2 and 4. Girls usually train before boys. No one really knows why, but I suspect it's because girls care more about being clean earlier than boys
I'm Dr. Ari Brown. Today, we're talking about the differences in potty training girls and boys. On average, kids learn how to use the potty between ages 2 and 4. Girls usually train before boys. No one really knows why, but I suspect it's because girls care more about being clean earlier than boys do. That's a good thing because girls who spend a lot of time in poopy diapers are prone to bladder infections , so better to get out of them as soon as possible. The biggest question I hear from parents of boys is whether
Solve Potty-Training Problems
Learn how to spot four potty-resistant personalities to avoid regression during toilet training.
of little children who say, toilet monster, go away. Number 3. The control freak . Some kids are less concerned about sitting in soiled diapers and more concerned that their parents are telling them what to do. The solution? Just play it cool. Take away the diapers and put the child in-charge of using the potty and helping to clean himself up and avoid the power struggle. Number 4. The withholder. One painful experience with constipation and a child may never want to poop again. Withholders try to hold the poop in instead of letting it come out. It comes a vicious cycle because holding on to the poop only makes it firmer and more painful when it does come out later. The solution? Make a plan with your child's doctor about using a gentle laxative and a high-fiber diet. A child needs regular soft stools before potty training begins. Don't worry. No one gets on the school bus in diapers.
When to Start Potty Training
There are three signs of readiness to determine if your child is ready for toilet training.
How to Potty Train in 3 Days
I'm Dr. Ari Brown. Today, I'm going to tell you about potty training boot camp and how to say goodbye to diapers in just 3 days. Yes, your child can potty train in just 1 weekend. What's the catch? You have to pick the right weekend. The key is to find a time when your child seems ready and you can
peeing on the potty, but resist pooping. In that case, a more gradual approach to help him feel more comfortable is the best way to do it. Start by letting your child wear a diaper while sitting on the potty. Then, cut a hole in the center of the diaper so the poop ends out in the potty. Step 6: Praise success. Your praise is the best reward. A child doesn't need a new toy or a piece of candy every time he uses the bathroom. Step 7: Don't punish your child for accidents. If your child leaves puddles on the kitchen floor , or could care less about having accidents or in training pants, she's not ready. Just go back to diapers on Monday or as soon as you admit defeat and try again another weekend. Toilet training will not happen any faster by keeping your child in training pants. Sometimes, it takes several attempts until the time is right. And some kids need a more gradual approach if they have toileting fears, or body awareness issues. If your child is at least 90 percent accident-free for the weekend, congratulations!
