Helpful Hints for

Successful Toilet Training

PARENTS, WE NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THE FOLLOWING: 

  • Dress for Success! Be sure clothing is easy to pull off and on. AVOID BUTTONS, ZIPPERS SNAPS AND BELTS DURING PERIOD.
  • Consider attaching velcro tabs to overalls to make them easy for a child to undo.
  • Take advantage of pull-ups with velcro side stretch panels which allow children to slip them on/off like underwear.
  • Celebrate and acknowledge any signs of progress with your child./files/infants/pt ribbon.jpg
  • Implement a "potty schedule" at home so your child gets accustomed to a routine.
  • Do not transition from pull-ups to traditional undergarments UNTIL your child can keep the pull-up consistently dry.
  • Teach your child how to count 4 toilet paper squares to avoid tearing off too much./files/infants/pt roll.jpg
  • Demonstrating proper toileting habits may be necessary - don't forget proper hygeiene!
  • Limit evening liquid in-take to gain nighttime control.
  • Don't get frustrated. Be patient!!!
