Welcome! This is the first in a series on “How to Potty Train”, which is such a big issue for parents of toddlers! I’ve done it four times (one more to go!) and believe me, I’ve had my ups and down. Now, I’ve decided to put together everything I’ve learned into a series of videos which I hope will be helpful for moms new to potty training. We’ll all get through it together!
Pin for later!
Signs Your Child is Ready to Potty Train
Here are some tell-tale signs (according to the AAP) that your toddler is ready to ditch the diapers and embark on potty training:
- Diaper stays dry for at least two hours during the day or is dry after naps
- Child’s poops become more or less regular and predictable
- Child signals pushing
- Child can walk and can help dress/undress herself
- Child shows interest in the potty and big kid undies!
