When to start toilet training
The time to begin to toilet train depends on the child. How can you tell if a child is ready? physically toddler needs enough muscle control to stop a natural release.
He/she had formerly let go whenever the felt pressure of urine or bowel material. Toddler needs to be able to tell you with a word or a sound or a look on his face or be able to get to the bathroom by himself.
Even so, he will probably need help with his clothing after all this, he is to let go-promptly.
Good toilet habits are complicated business and require timing. To stop natural release, to hold, and then to let go at a right time and place is what we are asking the child to do help, but it is upto him to manage it somehow.
Quite different from ‘ breaking’ him of a bad habit, or punishment him for all his misdeeds by confining him to the toilet, or other harsh methods. You know he is eager for your approval, and wants to cooperate. At the same time however, he has ideas being his own boss. A mother so often takes credit for training her child actually gets the blame when things go wrong.
When the baby is 8 or 9 months old some mothers begin to place him on a potty or toilet at a time when he usually has bowel movement. If he is regular about his movements, they will be successful at catching him.
Success depends upon intimate knowledge of the child’s, pattern, and the fact that the began to place him on the toilet before he reached the stage where he wanted to be on the go every minutes.
They may proudly announce that they have not had a messy diaper in weeks. As soon as their star pupil learns to crawl or walk, however, or if the rhythm changes, many find they are back where they started. The toddler acts as if he never heard of the idea.
Real bowel control can only be taught to most children after they learn to walk. If you are eager to get started try out to see if the child catches on supply a word for him to announce his wish to go to the toilet, or use his own sound.
Place him for brief intervals on the toilet with the diaper on or off so he learns how it feels.
Comfort and stability are important
A child should have good support for his back and feet. He may find a low seat less frightening than adult fixture.
with a child’s toilet seat added, bring him when you expect a bowel movement stay and talk with him. Take him off the toilet, success or no after a while seldom longer than five minutes.
If he struggles to be free, you gain nothing by forcing him to stay longer. He may be content to stand beside the toilet without removing his diaper while this does not save a diaper, that is not the goal here anyhow. The goal is to gradually get the idea of the right place, at the right time accepted.
Little children feel quite possessive about the products of their bodies, and don’t view bowel movements with disgust they are sure, at some point, to dabble in the toilet bowl or smear a bowel movement on the crib or walls…
Know the child’s experimental frame of mind
In fact, yourself are apt to act joyous about bowel movements when the child places them in the toilet.
Fear of being flushed down the toilet occurs at a time when child may also fear that he may slip down the drain in his bath. such fears seem ridiculous to adults, but the child has a very poor nation of relative size.
He experiments with the bulk of things in this play. Fitting little things into the big ones, and tries to shove big things into into small spaces.
It takes a while to make it toddler routine
It takes months of practice to get it all figured out. He has not much of an idea of his own size, either, in relation to doors, and drain to chairs or doll carriages.
Regular, daily bowel movement have become a symbol of good health in the minds of many people, but such a pattern is not necessary at all.
Many children have movements every other day or so,. unless the doctor prescribe it during during illness, the use of suppositories or enamax is unwise.
A diet which helps to keep the m mass soft, plenty of exercise and fluids are better than medicines which lead to over concern about a natural process.
