How to Start Potty Training Your Toddler

How to Start Potty Training Your Toddler

You have decided it is time to get your toddler out of diapers and so you are trying to figure out how you are going to potty train your child. If this is your story, then you are definitely in the right part of our web site!

I often get calls and emails from parents who are having potty training problems - they have been potty training their toddler for days, weeks or months and they just want to get do the end of this journey. They just want to get this potty training milestone out of the way!

One of the first questions I ask is how are you potty training - or more specifically, what method are using to potty your child?

I usually get a slight pause and then I got all sorts of answers. Amy Blanchard's Potty Training Troubles is an example of the types of calls and email I get.

So, after counseling many parents over the phone and via email, I decided it was time to write down the "how to potty train" formula!

Follow these three steps and you will have your toddler potty trained in no time.

  1. Make sure your child is ready to be potty trained

  2. Make sure that YOU the parent are ready as well.

  3. Get all the potty training "tools" or "equipment" that you will need to accomplish this job.

Notice, I did not say 3 simple steps - because they are not simple - but if you take the advice to heart and follow through on the details laid out in each step, especially step number 2, you should have a lot of success with potty training.
