postheadericon Potty Training: The Differences Between Girls & Boys

Training a little one to transition from diapers to the potty or the toilet requires that you wait for him or her to be ready. When the child demonstrates an interest, you can get them excited by making it fun and rewarding them for their successes. Just be sure to make regular trips and if accidents happen - which they will - just carry on with the training process. 

Whether you are training a little girl or a little boy, both usually start by sitting on a potty with both feet flat on the floor and legs apart, or on a toilet with a foot stool. Girls may learn more quickly, whereas boys tend to take their time and extra patience is needed when they learn to stand and take aim, while girls need to be taught how to wipe properly - from front to back.

Boys can be taught to aim by using Cheerios as targets. Make it fun by offering a sticker for success!

When more time is spent on the potty or toilet, you can help your little one to relax by playing music and letting them look at books.

postheadericon Potty Training Tips from Stylish Vintage Baby

Potty-training can be a stressful time for parents and little ones but there are some great tips and tricks for making it fun and successful for everyone.

The key is to watch for signs that the child is interested and developmentally ready. Comparing one child to the next is not helpful because they are all different and putting pressure on a toddler may actually delay the process.

There are lots of potty-training products available from potty chairs to seats that fit on a regular toilet as well as, pull-up training pants. Some parents go all out and buy a variety of potty-training props, while other parents decide to train the child right on the toilet. What works and doesn't work often depends on the child. Consistency is more important than the method that is used.

Rewards such as pennies for a piggy bank or little treats or stickers work very well as potty-training incentives and do a whole lot for boosting the child's enthusiasm, making potty-training fun!

Encouraging the child to sit on the toilet or potty every 20 minutes will help them to get into a good routine and prevent accidents from happening.

Potty-training is a time for parents and caregivers to give the child lots of praise and encouragement. Demonstrate love, affection and pride in the child's success. When accidents happen, stay positive and keep moving forward.

Applying these tips can go a long way in avoiding stress during potty-training and ensuring success!
